lyrics

Hey freak show, Barnum
Your suit, your skin, is pristine
Unfurl your tongue
And make a meal of me
Cloak and smiles
Hollow hopes you sold to them, you stole
They slave
And make the same mistakes
Unfurl your slick tongue
And make a meal of me
Humor the mannequins with gold
The masquerade you sold to them, you stole

Heed them, do what you will
It’s all that I can stand
If I’m irrelevant, then you’re coy
If I'm mad then you my friend are better off dead
Better undead, just better

Monster at our pulpit the blasphemy is deafening
It’s time we take control

The source we think we know
Like systems will fail
Our lives are but a sliver in the swirl that never ends
It’s all irreverent
The solstice cracks the skyline
You wait all night for a sign

Heed them, do what you will
It’s all that I can stand
If I’m irrelevant, then you’re coy
If I'm mad then you my friend are better off dead

Every single thing from worm to nymph
The cycle finds a way to start again
We will start again.
