These white coals, were once eyes These banded horns, were once mine This hollow chest and its lack of light These clumsy arms gripping too tight To the words I can never say And the ones that never go away All these habits and all these ways To erase myself, delete my mistakes Cut out the abscess / Unmake the synapse Drown us in darkness / Simple and perfect Claw your way out / Pull yourself up Drown us in darkness / Let it die, let it die These past hopes, these past lives They move past all space and time And we'll turn out our cartwheels We'll stand on hands, make due until Such time that we start to see What undoes you, what undoes me And all these things that'll never fade We'll hold them close til our dying day Cut out the abscess / Unmake the synapse Drown us in darkness / Simple and perfect Claw your way out / Pull yourself up Drown us in darkness / Let it die, let it die These white coals, were once eyes These banded horns, were once mine This hollow chest and its lack of light These clumsy arms gripping too tight To the words I can never say And the ones that never go away All these habits and all these ways To erase myself, delete my mistakes

Hold fast, we're drowning No recourse, it's astounding In bold face with black lines In basements and daylight We get high on fire, we tear ourselves apart Alright it's appealing Like napalm and chlorine Fill us with static And break down our habits Our latest outcome is full-scale annihilation We didn't think it could happen because science will save us We'll build a new world with artificial lifeforms And it'll sustain us until we're in our coffins Semtex and neoprene Are lining our ceilings We're cynics and sinners We're monsters and killers We get high on fire, we tear ourselves apart Alright it's appealing To believe in our engineering We're craftsmen, we're despots We're the last gasp of the humans Our latest outcome is full-scale annihilation We didn't think it could happen because science will save us We'll build a new world with artificial lifeforms And it'll sustain us until we're in our coffins

Hold your breath, hold your apathy Shake your tiny fists at me Throw your words from way on high Coat your tongue with salt and lye Why raise doubt we can't resist Every way your plan persists Stitch us up and pull the wires Lead us not to our desires Cut me up / Scatter the ashes and say your remembrances Pour me out / Blood of your brothers, wine of your leaders Pass the plate / Collect on our sympathy, cash in our charity Hold out hope / Nothing means anything so don't believe everything Hold your breath, hold your apathy Keep on pounding with your beliefs Grind us down with impunity Strip out reason and empathy Build us back and take us in Baptize us and call us kin Slaughtered lambs fit for the fire Stitch us up and pull the wires Cut me up / Scatter the ashes and say your remembrances Pour me out / Blood of your brothers, wine of your leaders Pass the plate / Collect on our sympathy, cash in our charity Hold out hope / Nothing means anything so don't believe everything Every whisper, every word Break 'em down before they are heard And we'll calculate just how much book to make Off the souls you pray to take We've grown wise, but gone soft In our hands and in our hearts This blood won't come off And these words won't lift us up
