Every fucking night I grind my teeth
The world spins faster and faster
How I wish that it would stop
In the turning by the morning
I watch them spray retch
Swells that carpet everywhere
Poison water, poison air

In the window of a passing bus
I see my reflection
Staring back at myself
Is just like watching television
People pass me by, staring blankly forward
Their looks keep me company
As their number streaks, I keep swimming

All I have are steel wheels to carry me onward
They wind about this earth
Like a snake we’ll grind the gears
In the center of the yard is a pair of gods
Progress and technology
The enablers but not the cause

As the wheels stop
As the fortress wall has dropped
I will plunge my knife
Into the heart of the clock
Cause they will burn
As the electric lights go out
And we remember the teachings of no one
Fucking no one!

Every fucking night I grind my teeth
The world spins faster and faster
How I wish that it would stop
In the turning by the morning
I watch them spray retch
Swells that carpet everywhere
Poison water, poison air
