lyrics

The migraine of lights
Flickers onto me
The echo clings to your last word
The rapture rages
Black on red
The pain numbs eventually

IV in the mainline
I slide into nothingness
Fixing up
Just to tear the guilt down
How many times can you pray?

And I'm happy
Blissful even
I get a break for just one hit
And finally
Nihilism fits me
Just like the chains I will burn in

Now the wretch
Who folded to the pressure of living
Is allowed to escape conviction
Running through the darkness
Senses numbed
Now that's a lesson well spent

And I'm back here
World on my broken shoulders
It was me who put it there
I am Atlas unbound
Trying to suffer under a weight
That isn't there
He can't man up
He's the nemesis
Knees buckle
I feel myself crumble
To the self-berating
Monkey on my back

And I'm happy
Blissful even
I get a break for just one hit
And finally
Nihilism fits me
Just like the chains I will burn in

Now the wretch
Who folded to the pressure of living
Is allowed to escape conviction
Running through the darkness
Senses numbed and drifting
Now that's a lesson well spent
