lyrics

Vaporous specters conjured.
They circle around me like vultures…
Sirens of potent beauty,
Speak sweet words and familiar phrases
Their hound of mental anguish
1 head, 4 eyes, no jaw
I gaze in unfiltered awe
Transfixed from a dose of truth
Indulge my sick desires.
Things I’ve always wanted
But never confronted,
My ego is dragged from its den
Held up for all to see
Empowered and ashamed, again and again,
Conflicts taking hold within me

Vaporous specters conjured.
They circle around me like vultures…
Sirens of potent beauty,
Speak sweet words and familiar phrases
Their hound of mental anguish
1 head, 4 eyes, no jaw
Transfixed from a dose of truth
I gaze in unfiltered awe
Indulge my sick desires.
Things I’ve always wanted
But never confronted,
My ego is dragged from its den
Held up for all to see
Again and again and again
AND AGAIN!!!

Haunted by subconscious grime:
The price we pay for all our crimes
For if we do not get in line
We’re set up with fines and threatened with jail time
Reliant on the ventures that we pursue
(We’re all just) Living day to day…
These days: not to many people following through
(We’re all just) waiting to betray…
It all makes a distorted kind of sense upstairs
Puzzle pieces that shouldn't fit together
They’re making a portrait, a crooked reflection
(I’m) looking back in, and I'm as light as a feather

Aww shit.
