lyrics

This is the place where innocence
Goes to die
This is the mindset where sick sad truths trump little white lies
A fascist passion without answered questions
In love with your cupidity
Finding tragedy in heartbroken bastions
To hide your lack of humility

Like a sea of salt for the thirsty
Drink your fill to expedite destruction
A mindless bow to your id and ego
An internal oligarchical seduction

So when you're staring down the empty aisle
Peering towards the mountainous body pile
The friends you used to have
Are the corpses that you left behind
You may have leached the life out of me
But you'll never take my spine

You're no different than the monsters
You claimed ruined you
You're just a wolf wearing wool
Deceivingly difficult to see through
The words you write
Paint the picture of the damaged
I'm shedding light
That will catch you red handed

You're not a victim
But a tyrannical sociopath
So take this wisdom
The villain never gets the last laugh

So when you're staring down the empty aisle
Peering towards the mountainous body pile
The friends you used to have
Are the corpses that you left behind
You may have leached the life out of me
But you'll never take my spine

Dictate
Replicate
Falsify vows of silence
Detract
Redact
And erase all of the violence

(Get fucked)
I am nothing but safety pins and razorblades
(But I won't be what you want me to be)
