Does any one know what I’m supposed to do?
I just don’t know what were coming to
This fucking planet makes me sick
And even worse, I’m a part of it

I did so many idiotic things
Things I still have yet to truly learn from
But at the end of my life
I know I’ll know nothing
And I’ve accepted the fact that we are
Bred to keep this illusion intact
Try to find something tangible
In this world of smoke and mirrors
When you figure it out
Come let me know
If you find an answer
Please bring it to me
‘Cause I’ve been searching my whole life
And many ages beyond
For every epiphany, another question
Fuel for the internal fire

What could be in store for me?
I guess I’ll just have to wait and see
Just another thing that breathes
I’ll let my thoughts go instinctively

Does anyone know who I’m supposed to be?
If I don’t is something wrong with me?
One thing you should know- I really could care less
About you pompous-ass, whiny, Porsche-driving prick
And then I spit on your grave

First I’ll dig up your body
And then I’ll kick it around
(Kick it around)
I have come to love the sound
Of a man begging for his life

First I’ll dig up your body
And then I’ll kick it around
(Kick it around)
Nothing compares to the sound
Of a human begging for its life

Begging for its life
Begging for its precious life
Its precious life

Our houses of stone:
Now teeth from the rain
Gnaw them away
In each hand rests a brain
Two names for one being
Polar opposites interconnected
A dividing line for safe keeps

I have seen many things I should probably be concerned about
But the world I was raised in taught me to distract myself

What a laugh... (x 2)
