as the shutter trips i see
the neurotic boy inside
on the fringe of this societal itch
the placebo in effect
see the artist interact
watch the death of all that shines
watch the traces stolen...

through the act
the collapse
the facade comes crashing down

try to contain the fire
taken on faith’s refrain
& the moment collapses

[let it burn]
wind down/disengage
turn the page/read between the lies
[let it burn]
replays the same old song
first to cut out
when everything you know is wrong

through the pure design of light
he develops the masquerade
still standing on the outside looking in

& it burns
let it burn
make it burn
& the facade comes crashing down

& i am last to fall
i succour this release
got out, dropped the bombs
lost in the noise of the scree.

so long
say farewell
the lesson will be learned....
