Oh long ago
There was a dead rat caught in a Chinese trap
And all I had to show
Where the ashes of a life that had no chance
It wasn't right, but all I could do
Was be another number that caught in the fuse
And what a lie, with nothing to lose
Something happened in nineteen-eighty-two!
Are you the enemy?
I find myself in wicked crest
I'm such a shitty mess
I'll catch my baited breath and lose my fucking mind
Called before the killer man
You need to understand
Psychopaths and sycophants are not a waste of time!
But all I know
Is heroes come and villains go
Just give the lunatic a chance
I shape this simple future-
Into something that resembles my own life...
A thousand better choices-
I've deceived a generation with my lies
A bastard in a denizen
Do Me A Favor
I am an anti everything man
a scab on the lips of the lord
my caustic - dismissal
is all I need to get you
To fall on your sword
It's easy to live fast
It's harder to live
I woke up today with a gun
Ignoring your history
Holding the "code" on top
Waiting for light and sound to stop
Deeper and deeper, today
Further and further, I fade away
Let me ignore the cost
Special effects for common loss
I'm ready for numb...
I'm ready for numb...
So I'm back in the corner-
Looking at either side again
There's a terrible knowledge-
That comes from being arrogant
Don't hold your breath, just keep what's left-
You'll be justified
Reservations and revelations
Prepare to crucify!
I'm living incomplete!
Until the pages of this book are filled with emptiness
I’m still suspended by a thread, expecting nothing less
I feel my kindred little ways… I know how my story ends
Like me… it’s not your gift to choose- I know you’re going to lose
Like me… this futile circumstance- you never had a chance
I’m here, walking in a city that is red again
I’m here, living with the dead again
Withering eyes catch you as you fall
A bitter sigh...
No one knows at all
Let me in...
For one more long disgrace
The same distractions you refuse to face
We both know that it's gone
But what if no one knows...
If I fail, if I fall...
If I can't be free, then I never was at all
The more I fight, I stay the same...
Where do I go, and what do I do?
I'll never know if I never get through
The more I fight, I stay... THE SAME!
Got a lot, a lot of excuses
Nothing better than a homemade lie
Every now and then a lifetime needs a second chance-
To find another one like you
Don't forget your better reason-
All your silly risks will bring you down
Oh several years of bitter Mondays take a heavy toll-
And then you realize, it's you
Until you make this easy harder-
No one else will care if you're around
If you live your love with no to most
The House Of Gold & Bones
This is what it's coming to
You wanna put me underground
Cause I'm overused
Giving up as you're pulling me down
I will make you come unglued
And you can cover me in subtleties
What an effigy
I can fake it cause
You'll never be real to me
The Uncanny Valley
Careful, the heathen wants to play...
Do you wanna be saved?
Someone doesn't feel himself today...
What a way to behave
When does your karma start to disarm your explosive demeanor?
It's not a reason to seethe
I see you showing your teeth
These are the valleys of greed
