The future is made while you sleep Make the bed if it calms Blankets will burn to ash The world is a burning house Lungs will change into cash Leeching hate rouses This house smolders Everything strays the same
This glooming sunset Pushes my eyelids down As I fall into a crooked daydream Where vanity lights make me feel My life is meant to be consumed All I see is red Feverish daydreams With tails, scales and teeth Have a life of their own You scurry like vermin As cash sets the atmosphere Values build on twigs and mud Prancing in a red dress Cloaking with gold Rushing the darkest blood I hope you find What you’re looking for But if this is all you want I feel sorry Please stray from the path That is blessed by the void All I see is red
Racehorse 02:38
I smell like shit My bit is covered in spit My father’s idols Are now my enemies Feed me Breed me Break me Mold me Thank god for the blinders Feed me Breed me Break me Mold me No rest no grace I hate circles They keep me on track My own idols Will float in blood
Jesus Mirror 04:02
I see what I want to see For when I dream I have control I harness you by my lust As make-up runs down your cheeks I argue with myself We fell in love with an image What she sees in you is me Image is broken Image of control She used to tell me I’m wishing for the moon We all die alone Alone and asleep I love your image
Can you smell it The constant irritation Eyes searching for a fault With stillborn posture Vain soul breathes the stale A stink under white tablecloths Take my passion gravely Goddamn Take my passion gravely Goddamn Can you smell it The constant irony Mouths searching for a blame With learned gestures Dead soul breathes the stale A stink much worse than failure We want something to call our own Ghosts to foil the rusting hope Let your fingers bleed Let your throat breach We are forced to live in a world of clichés
