every last one of us has a conscious
but the intended code is all that keeps the
darkness in check
how terrifying would it be for that to be stripped away
what is this backwards reformation
this sordid solitude, a twisted failsafe
where do we stop now?
there's no new kingdom
halos of grey - i can't be saved, but please
let me savor this day
Track Name: Clinging to My Last Bit of Sanity
my left brain's no right brain
but right helps the left and this craft here
you exist because i say and my brains, well
they split long ago so as you see where
we are now
should explain much
you don't think it so and i need you to believe
this could save me, soak my sanity in blessing
and recognition, mine
....what am i saying, this ends today
Track Name: The View Through This Fog
these stained grey bones, their image stapled to his skull
there was no acclimating to this
was it the taste that brought insanity?
or being forced to believe this was the only choice
it's happened to them all
starving to death to keep this in check
never free to simplicity again
this opus of sickness reigns high
as the last strings pop
Track Name: Failure Savior
fifth ticket to sit here and suffer
and i'm further down the line
sat here long enough to think
that now i'll be fine
but somehow i've fooled you all
when all i wanted was my own dissatisfaction
so what are these times of torture
but jaded fragments of vice and life
what are these ideas of failure
kept holstered by my side?
i open doors to the ever-flourishing voids in my soul
even worse is that i have let people learn to care for them
Track Name: Ego Eats Man
I just crawled out of a grave that I helped make. Now I'm wearing a cape without a crusade. How silly do I look? Just look at my face. I may smile a lot, but wait till you see what's underneath
stars will die and trees will burn and i'll still be here
grounded with stop signs
I just walked out of a cave, so dark and dank. Now I'm driving a car on an empty tank. How the fuck does that work? Just look at the flames. I may die a lot, but at least I have lived. Over and over again.
nameless lands and faceless men, the chapel
stands up straight but hasn't a voice since nobody's let in
over drained waters leaving dry and grainy earth
the smoke consciously drifts towards lung to decay
Track Name: Life From Inside Your Pocket
smiles received without ever turning the light back on
trial/deceit, why does everyone think that i am just so dumb
transparent life i tied back for you, i cannot sustain
the blank page hallowed in me, in darkness i pray
stricken down by the most ungrateful masters
led to believe i am simply a bastard
led to believe that there's something of worth in me
dead from disease after you took what's worth from me
sleeping in hell in quiet pain while i plead for thee
slaving, i crave to find the hole from which you came
surely enough you were never born this way
this is the first night of many i've spent insane
black heart that fissured you took it as a vacancy
to install the demons that plague my memory
blackness i saw, the night you spit the blame on me
is this all that they do?
miles away and left in purple waves to faulter
will you open the doors or close them for the better?
will you shed your skin in Fall and leave forever?
let us not speak but flow with discrepancy
we cannot share this world, it wasn't meant for me
i thought of the blood and poisonous treachery
begone, of this plane
