lyrics

eventually the promise of sleep is realized
dreams are crushed to dust in the morning sun
logic is indefinitely suspended to support your god
the marriage is over
my throat and wrists and empty stomach
suggest failure on a constant basis
calendars and clocks and seasons mock
this pathetic and painful stasis
i don't blame you. there's nothing to see
towel off the afterbirth with luxury

dreams don't come here except to die
we've all been left here we aren't told why
some still smile and worship skin
and gleefully ignore the trap we're all placed in

art is another symptom noise and clutter, defecation
reward it and you're rewarding obsessive masturbation
end the mental growth slit every creative's throat
take away the distractions and step off the boat
stop talking, no one's listening read the books and take the pills
manufacture purpose for the bone-carving sand
for the hole in the chest for the empty thrills
