Lyrics

You’ll either have the money or live just how you want
Please send away for my happiness bouquet
And all your jokes are funny but my smile leaves a mark
And the pen decays like the hand that seized the day

You’ll either fight them all kid or live just how they want
You were born in grief and they hand out scarce relief
God knows your taste is faded and your comedy is sharp
It’s a bad, bad way when you put on your good face
And the silent days tear the blanket anyway

I used to not be scared to die cause I had a better afterlife
Now I’m not afraid to die cause this place is fucking hell sometimes
It would be relief to stop feeling everything
Sheep shed their skin for comfort lamb shed themselves for taste
And the lame they swoon o’er the comforts of the room
Sheep call their sin their savior their ever-giving grace
It was all a ruse, all the comfort I gave you
The deception grew til irrevocably confused

A slow death for the spirit, a quick death for the heart
It’s a sad, sad day for the ones who still remain
And all hearts wait for contact as they dance inside their cage
And the cages sway in the dying light of day
And the children play in the light of judgement day

I used to not be scared to die cause I had a better afterlife
Now I’m not afraid to die cause this place is fucking hell sometimes
It would be relief to stop feeling everything
Am I hypocrisy, cause I still attempt to breathe

Your great escape was yesterday, your lion heart was still manmade
Your sin was wiped your debt repaid

But we miss every drop of blood
And we kill because we feel we must
A kite string tangled must be cut
A heart string sheered a life is lost

A cold fate in time will cut the rest
The god that saves the least I guess he saves the best
