In that final look
Does the deer forgive the wolf?

You've stolen my fascination
You've smothered my holy addiction

And now I'm soaked in you
Like fat white worms & sad haikus

I woke up
& the world was on fire

I woke up
& the swine had conspired

To erase all the faith
That I have in the human race

I woke up
& the world was on fire

It's all in your head
It's all in your head
They said I need to flee

Are they shephards?
Or are they sheep?

Are we the butchers?
Or are we the meat?

In this nest of lies
Living a life under siege
We sink in the stink
& I need my disease

It's all in your head
They said I need to flee
This neverending
Ordinary monarchy

Beneath the toxic water
Where my secrets come to meet
In catacombs of shadow
& wet skies of mystery

I found a soggy savior
A painted lady made of eyes
She sings to me, of my deceit...
"your life is a lie"

I woke up
& the world was on fire

I woke up
& the swine had conspired

To erase all the faith
That I have in the human race

I woke up
& the world was on fire

It's all in your head
It's all in your head
They said I need to flee

Are they shephards?
Or are they sheep?

Are we the butchers?
Or are we the meat?

In this nest of lies
Living a life under siege
We sink in the stink
& I need my disease

It's all in your head
They said I need to flee
This neverending
Ordinary monarchy

If we stand too still,
They're gonna eat us alive!

Watch your tongue,
Teach them young...

Medicate the mutiny.
Better living through chemistry.
Self destruction's patriotic.
Money fixes everything.

Watch your tongue,
Teach them young...

We're taught
To love & hate,
To fight & obey...

I've lost my mind,
But I've found my way

(In this nest of lies
Every walls has eyes)

It's all in your head
It's all in your head
They said I need to flee

In this nest of lies
Living a life under siege
We sink in the stink
& I need my disease

It's all in your head
They said I need to flee
This neverending
Ordinary monarchy
