lyrics

Your eyes staring right through me
Cauterised by the sun
A burnt tree getting black by the minute and only
One hand that I can see

A red moon is rising
The blood from my ear
It trickles down my neck

You don't know me
And you never will
You don't know the truth
Of what I'm about to tell you
My wounds are the medals for
All the battles I've won
Burst vessels and self-destructive
Near-life conflict
Fighting through the compulsion
To ignite everything
Curb stomping and blackened eyes

The vulture perched on my shoulder
Don't have the courtesy to wait for me
My heaven don't want me up there but
Hell's got some work for me

The red moon is still rising
The blood from my ear
Still trickles down my neck

My narcissistic rage crushed in
Screaming "fuck 'em!"
As I follow my code
I've got to keep moving
You know that because
My P.O's got some work for me
