lyrics

For a brief period of time, in the empty vast plain of space echoed a message titled "Freedom via Self-Expression" - Ex Machina

For 40 years a dormant power known only as "positive vibrations" tingled the most easily aroused aspects of my creative imagination

We sent the holiest of heroes to be born in the most harsh of conditions under the suspicion that their comeuppance would eventually achieve ultimate fruition

I was born in the most comfortable of conditions to see if the Hoover Dam could truly hold back the raging rapids of anxiety that are consistently pulling out rugs from under me

Welcome

To initiation
We denounce any and all premeditated inclinations

Slowly crawling towards the altar with outstretched palms
We work our jobs and when passion police calls we play musical chairs to avoid paying repentance through a head held in a swirling drain of an overflowing bathroom stall

They pick apart the weak and foolish Schoolyard-Style
Admittance to the cool kids club requires you rap like static and wear anything but argyle at all times
Argue while they take names
And save the ass kicking slave trade for the next mediocre album drop date

We stand too high on pedestals
We only desire to test the Thestrals without a previous death
I'd kill to break bread with anyone who isn't chasing the dying waves of bad fads

Pour the gasoline on your past, lads
And flick the flame from fingertips
Then roll through the slums with a hundred angels dressed like bums who know skills pay bills and hold a favoritism towards fingerflips

If you hold onto these tree branches
You'll fall for 3 days before your gravestone cracks
And your lost to the black hole of curiosities and oddities
Cold and molded
Once was golden
Now your wholesome home is frozen
Gotta build a new genre just to hold all the heads I've rolled with

Monsters and fiends
Devils with wings
Money fueled dreams aren't ever as they seem
