I wanna be king and I don't care how there's a fuckload of problems and its all I think about it doesn't matter if the stakes are high cause I need to call the shots and give no reason why and I don't care if its easy or not. I wanna be king for a day I can't imagine any other way and here's my royal decree: Everyone is free. I; wanna-be, king.

I'd run from the swampy shores through the valley of fucking drakes in search of a sign from above that the sun still gives more than it takes But what is this crestfallen state I'm in? Its on me to climb so high to find a bell to ring; absolve me of these sins. Come on, grab my hand, we're gonna make it out of here We can tell the story of how and why the old days died There's no telling how much better it gets from here I can see the other side.

I don't know much of anything but I know I'm gonna die none of us escape that fact but that doesn't keep me on track. Faces etched in time Such fortunate happenstance- being born with all four limbs, a brain that works, but doesn't know anything. Faces etched in time door shut, music up, now pantomime. Faces etched in time shamefully lucky to have made it this far yet I can't describe what the fuck we really are. Faces etched in time.

I've ground my teeth to dust before waiting around for the perfect open door now I'm ready to fight. "telecaster sword". Bone chips all around, what's happened? A book of ancient, amazing philosophies conjures me up a song of wicked, painless ease A song of ponds and swaying trees. I've ground my teeth to dust before waiting around for the perfect open door now I'm ready to fight. "telecaster sword". Telecaster sword. I'm cursed by heavy runes and wild moons and I won't be getting back too soon. *incantation repeats*

My skin has been stretched and pulled by chains my mouth, the means by which to extract my brains but I won't give up until My corpse is dragged up the basement stairs and ripped to shreds by the one who cares but I won't give up until When the cenobite comes What the heck is wrong with me? I've walked into a trap for the last time. For the last time. What the fuck is going on? It feels as though I'm drowning and burning. At the same time. When the cenobite comes

What makes you think you're a real man? That you'd ever understand what its like to be broken down, counted out, for nothing tangible? Nothing tangible. Graduation doomsday Sunday morning mass grave And it's rich how you proceed to dictate morality from that perch on high clutching that holy book that you so revere, "Tales from Someone's Ass". A critical hit to the throat of a long-dead nation Pathetic as fuck. A satisfying blow to the worst pussies of creation Pathetic as fuck. Shut it down, live it out. Shut it down and we can live it out. Graduation doomsday Sunday morning mass grave

Wave after wave of grief like hidden outrage what's a guy to do when its obvious he's outplayed? and a downpour is starting it washes all away. When I wished that you were dead I'd close my eyes I'd wish so hard But it didn't work. What's with this nostalgic wave? I'm going brain-dead or going back in time to When I wished that you were dead I'd close my eyes I'd wish so hard But it didn't work. You're still alive. So I take it back. That wasn't me. That wasn't.

If there's a death around every corner what are people so god damn fucking scared about? if there's a reason for every disorder its inevitable, we're gonna die someday. You're scared to know if that one tiny truth applies to you. Today is here, tomorrow's coming to get you. What else can we do? Sing to pass the time.

You won't see me on the street, but you'll know I'm around. a callous breeze on your neck, to the spine on down. while you retreat to the cave in which you somehow dwell. with worthless words people pass by and pity the clown. But its not all bad. Maybe there's maggots who can find your body for food. Maybe there's some shit-stained hobo who could use your shoes. But its not all bad.

To make sense of the bullshit that I've seen I wonder why we've ever been and how we've earned this oxygen. and I watched the beggar's dream come true then I saw it all fall down cause some need more than oxygen. Where regular perceptions aren't enough. Its not the same. We're gonna take your guns and boil them down to dust cause words are weapon enough. When they go low we gotta fill in the dirt from above. Where regular perceptions aren't enough. Its not the same. I wouldn't expect anything less from above. When they go low we gotta fill in the dirt from above. When they go low we gotta burn this shit to the fucking ground.
