lyrics

Smokestack, cancerous. Iron rusting.
Daylight wasted. As it must be.

The cage beckons like an empty friend
Sleep terror then it starts again
It gives nothing ‘cause it only lends
Just takes until the bitter end

A human being can live a long long time
can’t we just get this over with?

Painstaking, sidewinding, pulled by the strings
Teeth sink into the hand that feeds
With fear at my side, I’m beating the system to death.

nstinct calls me. I ignore it.
As the clock ticks, thoughts turn violent.

A pale shadow of a dream untrue
Some still believe it, but they’re dreaming too
The horses run until they’re turned to glue
I know precisely what I need to do

A human being can live a long long time
can’t we just get this over with?

Painstaking, sidewinding, pulled by the strings
Teeth sink into the hand that feeds
with no other choice, I'm beating the system to death.

(Lead: "Rot For Teacher" by R. Bruchert)
