Walked straight for the longest time
Never looked at that exit to the other life
Kept it airtight, lost all sight
Although all I ever had to do was stay blind
As well as stay down
The eyes are open now and I'm screaming towards the ground
Slammed back onstage now where I will mime
Through a broken jaw
But I forgot again, just my imagination
Out of touch with reality again
Where the outer surface never rises
From the nukes
That implode and pass, that implode and pass
Even though eventually they'll throw off the mask,
Reveal the insides and every past
To an empty night when all the flesh had crawled back into the stale light
They've spent their lifelines
On making sure I reach their landmines

IF I HAD A LIFE
I PROBABLY WOULDN'T NOTICE
IF I HAD A MIND
I WOULDN'T LET IT CHOOSE FOR ME

Well the sun's nailed up now
The swarms all loose now
Preparing in full force to climb their ladders up
While their engines drill the skies down
As long as it takes to build that armored skyline
Under which I've dried up
While waiting for the ocean's rise

To sweep it all away somehow
To the carefree glow of the grey sand
Where the blueproof tide unwinds its grasp
To the paper shores' sway of an ion sky
But now the stillframe skips over and back
And all folds away into these cartboard blinds
And then I hear the voices whisper: "Give it up"

I SAID:

Give it up this isn't what you wanted
Now just give it up this isn't what you wanted
Give it up, this isn't want we had in mind

You had your life to live
Now tell me what to do
I've got no life
I won't even choose
