lyrics

Verse one:
Sick of drowning, I'm ready to stand /
But so anxious, I cannot steady my hand /
A bevy of plans that may never come to fruition /
No matter the Our Fathers or Acts of Contrition /
I'm back on a mission until I'm packed in a prison /
Or masked in a prism, I am fact, you're derision /
No life coach or guru, just compassionate wisdom /
Life-giving + death-dealing /
Grim Reaper with the eye of Horus /
Feared, for sure, but our peers do adore us /
The dollar's in the details, the devil will whore us /
+ all the little hipsters will claim they abhor us now /
Resounding chorus now, you were deeper when depressed /
They loved me when I loathed me, feed on my stress /
Heart beats in my breast, yes, my moves are rash /
But I'll continue to make art like an organized car crash

Verse two:
I try to hold my tongue, but it's slippery /
I beat a dead horse only 'cause it stays kicking me /
Old ghosts haunt from a new grave /
Living in a fallen house + my bed's made /
This is glorious defeat, I'm a beautiful loser /
It'll be splinters + sutures before a suitable suitor /
The servant girl doesn't get the prince /
She gets identified with dental records + finger prints /
We all have our ways out, how we choose to cope /
Get high on marijuana, facebook, or hope /
Pray to the sky until the day that we die /
That's not a needle in his arm, he is saying goodbye /
There's graves in his eyes, torturous tombstones /
Some pretty poetry in those bruised bones /
The privilege of a pedestal can be all-consuming /
Heroes don't exist, we are all too human
