Lifelines breathing empathy, I'm salty but bemused
These guilty hands can't make amends, with robots, tie my noose
I kiss the ground to see your mouth, everyone is inside out
Suffer shudder bend to whims, I only stand to lose
Yesterday you found my pills hidden in your couch
I took them all, backflipped all the way to oak tree's blouse
My matter don’t mind and my mind don’t matter, caustic smack stammer blacklist lift and jam
All my time is spent wasting away, contradistinction of progress made
I live in a world of unrealities
I’ve got this syndrome that enables me to see through walls, but mine are built up high enough no one sees through at all
Come back to spend, bring apes amend, map your mind, overextend
Dig and smell the rotting stench of shame your sins expel
I punched paradise straight in its face
Intoxicated by the smell of anger in the air
Left for dead in stranger ends with altitude impaired
Bring all your friends, tell them that I can cure your AIDS
Best to note that everyone is staring at your legs
Swirling down into the mist, I’ll fall until I drown in this
Like an eagle earns his wings I’ll take the leap and meet my fate
The world’s gone mad and I’m upset my face is getting dry
Now our plan is realized, the football player dies
I should forgive myself for murders that I dream
Once again my heart has failed me, cuts rip at the seam
