lyrics

Disgorge the enticement, you roll in and lap up the false agenda
Collect your vainglory, no one is watching, no one is watching
I have to pick apart at all this mess you're leaving here
Let's fall upon ourselves, restore disposition

We crave for displays of separation
Intent on taking value
Brought up in hell and couldn't change it
But you watch it burn

And when this world calms down
I'll feel it in my head and I'll
Fly off in eudaimonia

It will play its stratagem in places where vanity goes on quenchless
In every notion it swallows all the helpless all the ignorant

They say keep looking forward but now there's a weight on your back
Conditioned to throw it all away regurgitating this subconscious attack

And all this time, your reactive mind has painted the ceiling blue
Impatient at best, go clean up the mess you made
You replay every night, every night, every night

We crave for displays of separation
Intent on taking value
Brought up in hell and couldn't change it
But you watch it burn
When will you ever do something better
When will you fucking learn
