This glow I found upon my desk Cuts me in a miraculous jest Blood is dripping from my chest Fend for myself out of this nest The world drops off for a feed of the crop Your belly won’t ache until you stop Bend the planet down, pick it over again No one has to know until you’re friends I guess it’s as important you find out for yourself What it means to give health to your soul, know it well Your body corrupts your mind One is just a product and the other’s undefined Take your body back to the graveyard But let it go into the natural Earth You can’t stop when you’ve nothing to say about it Living life blind in your house of mirth The world drops off for a feed of the crop Your belly won’t ache until you stop Bend the planet down, pick it over again No one has to know until you’re friends

Dart the skies and move right past Nothing matters, it won’t last Starry up your spiral path Start me on more tidal wrath Bark more orders to collide Mark your doors as suicide Behind the mountain is a mouth that feeds You’re catching up behind your vacant seeds Your torture’s plenty and it’s all you need You’re going twenty, but you’re clocked for speed Bark more orders to collide Mark your doors as suicide Give you something to hallucinate Make you fade out and don’t hesitate Bark more orders to collide Mark your doors as suicide

Broken to open my vial of elegant remains Tired and woken my illegitimate restraint Wired to broke again, I’m willingness relaxed Admired but shook and why will there be relapse The world is caught by your confidence But it only loses when you say it is Open your lampshade and try yourself to get retired Broken but happy, it’s wise more help is hired Token of half-baked, all your ideas inspired Move off the gram, babe, mall tour years expired Your patience is a virtue That gravity really suits you My cavity in pursuit knew Take time for you to reboot through I’ve got this temporary ache And it won’t go away until I forsake it My body is a temple for life But it’s falling apart from the dark I stay sick

Take just a little bit of what you make Jump yourself inside of it and have a taste Relax yourself to earn a bit of open space Control yourself enough so you don’t have to face The war coming through in attitude You’ve only got yourself to lose The followers are gone insane from watching your slavery You’re tying them up and you’re calling it bravery Water for the witch that drowns in the sound Have yourself a pat on the back for getting around The innocent come back through in a rouse of smoke Suffocates your veins as you choke The war coming through in attitude You’ve only got yourself to lose The followers are gone insane from watching your slavery You’re filling their cup and you’re calling it bravery The only thing you’ve got to show is a room full of things you know Familiarity to the touch, they don’t like you very much And you’re starting to feel it down in your soul You’re losing control of what you beg for Trying to get a sense of what you paid for Pitiful, the sense of nothingness When you empty your pockets, it seems you empty your sense

Your skin is the glue that keeps it all together Your blood is the center of the universe Your eyes are the gaze that capture every moment Your mouth is the speaker of human verse As we watch the stars fall into shape Can we question the nature of our ways All we know, the forest’s been blacked out Wash your mouth with soap and cast your doubts You’ve got the spark that lights the dark You’ve built yourself upon the ark You’re vacant too, I can see it in you You hold me close just as the sinew As we watch the stars fall into shape Can we question the nature of our ways All we know, the forest’s been blacked out Wash your mouth with soap and cast your doubts

Catch your wraith and collapse on the faith of what you call your own You’re living down in the deep of it I told you to make a decision that would call upon your best ideals But you threw it out and left yourself unspent You can’t get yourself alone You won’t answer your own call The sacrifice you made is going to waste It’s got you by the tail that you chase Look back in denial that things have got so cold In your own hands that you take for granted The lack of a trial for the actions that were bold and worn In circumstance that nature planted and you took for wild You can’t get yourself alone You won’t answer your own call The sacrifice you made is going to waste It’s got you by the tail that you chase Catch this wish and suffocate it You can’t have your dish and love to hate it Grow your spotlight, let it fade in Cut the curtains that you bathe in You can’t get yourself alone You won’t answer your own call The sacrifice you made is going to waste It’s got you by the tail that you chase

Blinded by the fright These hallucinations have taken up my sight And thrown me into the deep What a dreadful night My subconscious has in store for me Am I alone or am I dreaming What’s this mean Shouldn’t I be lean The walls are so clean Are they speaking or laughing I can’t retake this test of my sanity I clearly have failed I’m going to rake the sand in spiral patterns that do me away My ship has sailed Call my name whenever you need out of this Hell-scape I brought us into I won’t be there But there’s a chance someone will hear your cries to the void And let you loose What’s this mean Shouldn’t I be lean The walls are so clean Are they speaking or laughing

I’ve got myself on a special lift to paradise It doesn’t knock twice Pulling my strings is the great beyond I know my purpose, I can’t give it out I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts My intuition is to figure it out I know I’m nothing so relay it down I’m trying to find you in the darkness I’m trying to seek out the ether My mind isn’t ready for the damage I don’t care what the plan is I know my purpose, I can’t give it out I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts My intuition is to figure it out I know I’m nothing so relay it down This treatment burrows inside of my skull Like a hole from a drill bit, out of control Give myself to this shit, I’m on a roll Test myself without it to see if I’m in control I know my purpose, I can’t give it out I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts My intuition is to figure it out I know I’m nothing so relay it down

I know you want to stop me from reaching for the past The now is all we really have It feels better when I stop and think, why do I have to think this way It’s better than feeling like shit for something I can’t control the circumstances of This life from below comes from above There’s nothing but laughter in the sky tonight I think I’m losing my mind Just on time
