Toxic Emissions
Modern Conditions
Vague Apparitions
Lost in the discontents
Cling to the senses
Cling to the nothingness
Laugh like you are not there
Laugh like you do not care
Tension undying here
Soft and familiar
Wide eyed and innocent
Warm ways and imminent

Breathe in, breathe in
Breathe in, breathe in

Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!

Lines in a paper
Black clouds and vapour
Now filled with summer
Light rains and meteors
Light rains and meteors
Holes in the universe
Crayons and scribblers
Infinite bellies burst
Cracks in the ocean crust
Choke on the cosmic dust

What will become of us?
What will become of us?
What will become of us?
What will become of us?

Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!

Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!
Oblivion!

    Lyric CorrectionHere's the real lyrics. Check out the acoustic version of the song to hear them clearly.

    Toxic Emissions
    Modern Conditions
    Vague Apparitions
    Lost in the discontents
    Cling to the senses
    Cling to the nothingness
    Laugh like you are not there
    Laugh like you do not care
    Tension undying here
    Soft and familiar
    Wide eyed and innocent
    Warm ways and imminent

    Breathe in, breathe in
    Breathe in, breathe in

    Oblivion!
    Oblivion!
    Oblivion!
    Oblivion!

    Lines in a paper
    Black clouds and vapour
    Now filled with summer
    Light rains and meteors
    Light rains and meteors
    Holes in the universe
    Crayons and scribblers
    Infinite bellies burst
    Cracks in the ocean crust
    Choke on the cosmic dust

    What will become of us?
    What will become of us?
    What will become of us?
    What will become of us?

    General CommentWe try to be oblivious to the conditions of our world to avoid thinking about or dealing with serious issues.

    General Comment"flag out petitions" might possibly be "vague apparitions"?
    "cling" to the senses/nothingness?
    "tension and dying air"?
    i keep hearing "'not' filled with summer"
    and "cracks in the ocean 'crust'", possibly? haha rhymes with dust lol
    nice job, those first 3 lines i had a couple completely different lines but yours are definitely right
