Take flight; your wings of gold
Are slowly fading to a shade of green
Light the lamp, and hold it to the sky
See you lying half-dead in the stream.

Taking time to free your mind of all the aches and purple slime,
Got the shakes, the earth it quakes, holding still while you eyes
Fake a smile

Why do I say I'm sorry?
Pain is just a tingle in your mind.

Surrender all nine lives
Lord knows you're not mean to walk on all fours
Look at the world through your slitted eyes,
And scratch me while I'm helpless on the floor.

Someday soon in a red balloon, the skull is going to take the moon.
You will not see a single thing, you will spend your whole life free
In the dark

Why should I say here, darling?
You are here because of your own lies.

Why do you need my story?
Haven't you heard it enough times before?
Can you ever be satisfied?
Satisfy me.
