we are standing on the brink of creation and disaster
we connect the dots
a hungry machine for delivering a child
and creating symmetry
a misguided pawn is sent to the front lines to die in the name of his king who sits blank and morbidly obese behind his battlements of impregnable greed

a falcon sighing like a feather falling like an angel
and suddenly a father figure clad in roses
rising form the crypt licking his wounds and crying for the desperate measures taken

a hybrid pervert castrates the marvelous belly dancer
as she torpedoes through the swinging doors
as she finally comes to recognize her own reflection as a
filthy whore
a candid pose has captured there is to know
the farmer rings the wedding bells as his only daughter weds a monster who dwells
in the dungeons and dances on a sheer saffron tapestry
the oddities she once concealed are now what makes her pretty
all the boys agree she should be held and admired endlessly
for all her perfect flaws

the ends were justified by the losses
i control the remote signal from a distant lighthouse
the end is not so far away

and we were built like ships inside this bottle how mysterious
and how very strange
but i have watched the fickle fruit abandon their branches for the ground
and fits of rain have washed away all consequence without a sound

but i've been assured that its not as bad as we thought
its just the way the world was programmed to spin
and its pulling us in

grass grows around our feet
there's no one i want to meet
you wont make me complete

maybe the sun just keeps coming up cause it has nothing better to do
and maybe the moon disappears once a month
cause she needs some time alone to think things through

yeah maybe the sun just keeps coming up cause it has nothing better to do
and maybe the moon disappear once a month
cause she needs some time alone to think things through

yeah maybe the sun just keeps coming up cause it has nothing better to do
and i say the moon disappears once a month
cause shes sneaking around behind our backs with someone new
