And when they found our worn traveler
Frozen in time like an alligator purse
Tomorrow will came rushing in all at once
They spoke kindly of the comrade they left to the dust-mites
To the worms to be burned like heretic poems
My heretic limbs survived parasitic space
It wasn't dead, it was meditating slow
And when it came time to leave, I wasn't ready to go

You are a fish floating in wet concrete
You are an ape confused in a construction site
Time waits for none of us
And after all of this growth, gravity will take all of us
Violent creator's seek to find peace through bliss
Some light at the end of cyanide mist
Where walking the walk is an end to itself
So said my favorite teacher before they slit his throat

Where you gonna run when the walls come down, when the roof caves in?
Where you gonna turn when the roads are all dead ends?
Who's gonna come and save ya from the hole you're diggin' now
Who ya' gonna ask for help when there's no one left to let you out?

Crawling through the halls of your own life
Like you've been banished
You've been damned to roam the wasteland
Like an angry god feeding his prey pieces of his own flesh
I'm hungry for the void, and when it came to broke
Some crawled away from the light that feeds off man
All of my plans are ideas to be marched into battle
But that is where they will meet their bloddy end

Who will you fight when your enemies retire
Where will you turn when the circle is closed
Buried in beach sand waiting for a new wave
To wash your pain inside away
Asking for help like millions of others, falling to your knees
Your best dreams are but tears in the sea
Suck it up, the air I mean
'cause we're living in a vacuum

Where you gonna run when the walls come down, when the roof caves in?
Where you gonna turn when the roads are all dead ends?
Who's gonna come and save ya from the hole you're diggin' now
Who ya' gonna ask for help when there's no one left to let you out?
