you ask me why
ill tell you die
my head is full of lies
and i am beyond high

you dont know just what i'm waiting for
acid burns my skull as blind as snow
black oblivion drags me ever towards
i dream tomorrow till tomorrow is nevermore

voices tell me strike the match and burn it all to hell
voices tell me i could watch if i promise not to tell

you dont know just where i want to go
the cross won't save you from your fallen soul

drive slow motion firewall
candy apple fuse
emotions are unattached as demons are amused

family spins the circle
nerves are growing cold
shotfun to the temple
nausea down below
no more talking backwards
or fists to the heart
blacklight tries to capture
one more superstar

no more lines to cross
no more lines i'm lost

you dont know just where i want to go
acid burns a hole right thru my soul
black oblivion my long lost friend
lord forgive me for i have sinned
Time...now!!!

    General CommentSome lines in this songs are about drugs and fame. Others about cliches from the rock scence ("talking backwards", "temple", "nausea" etc). Criticizing idolatry maybe.
