lyrics

Lyrics:

It feels right to take things slowly
When it's just so goddamn lowly
And you're burning in from the outside
And you're getting taken for a joy ride

Wands without magic, pentatonic Pentateuch
Might as well take pedagogy on a fluke
When sycophancy takes fancy straight en masse
Well, you might as well get down and kiss some

Asking questions of parents
The answers to which they daren't
Relinquish, due to sheer transparency
While somewhere, a lawn gnome sings longingly

That it's not me who should wake to this sleeping life
Well, shit sucks - and sucking shit supports your wife
And as you wave your magic wand just one more time
There's little hope you'll make it out with a sound mind

And body - viral infections
Are just a little better than rejection.
Validate the dates you're there, the ones you're not
Your knotted stomach now acting as a clock

Ticking and pulsing, and counting out the time
As you sift through a river of the slime
From mankind - but don't raise your whisper to a shout
No resurrection from this tomb, there's no way out

There's no way out...
