lyrics

Our heavy hands have ambitious plans
They break everything they touch
The pretty face, the jock, the brain
Deep inside they're all the same

Blackened and carcinogenic. We're charred and frail.
Atrophied we're slowly dying. Inevitably we will fail.

Inoperable, corrupt. We're damned if we do, if not we're just fucked.
A short story summarized: Everything you love will die.
So why not give up? Why give a fuck? When there is nothing for us in this life but accepting death. When the sun explodes this will all be meaningless.

Blackened and carcinogenic. We're charred and frail.
Atrophied we're slowly dying. Inevitably we will fail.

We work, manipulated, we're shrink wrapped and packed in a box. Our glory days spent down in a hole, we're constantly looking up.
Look for direction in a pile of maps, torn, nervously rolled.
The cartography shows where we've been, but never where we want to go.

The moment you accept that you're a walking corpse is the moment you can start to live.
