Soundgarden – Drawing Flies lyrics

Flies
Flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Sitting here like wet ashes with X's in my eyes
And drawing flies
Bathed in perspiration, drowned my enemies
Used my inspiration on a guillotine
I fire a loaded mental cannon to the page
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X's in my eyes
And drawing flies
And I said, "Hey what you yellin' about?
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction
Hey what you yellin' about?
Sadists' co-addiction, perfect analogies
Hey what you yellin' about?
Conditions, permission, mirrored self-affliction"
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X's in my eyes
And drawing flies
Flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X's in my eyes
And drawing flies
Flies, flies, flies, flies, flies, flies, flies, flies, flies
