words fade above the snow
the carved out psychic stitch
the carver's all who waves surrender
through all tempers looking back
the skin begins to crack
those ever double jointed blamers

i’m closed off no power the will inside no peace
no feeling all disease around security

divide the cycles find
a call who's never caught
belief heals over time decision

the vice grips never freed
a crease upon one's debt
and never paying forward

we will be what we hate
what will be left today
when nothing's left to beg the moral

what is it can't you say
who will be left to play
when ugly crippled eyes remain

i’m closed off devours the meat inside of me
in freeing all afraid of life eternity

burning of sorrow craving inside no teeth
holding on nothing is left to be believed

what will we want with fear
the time bomb coming near
when nothing’s left to have or hope for

what is there left to say
an ancient plan to pay
with blood and shit tomorrow

we will be learning shame
until we play the game
that in the end will bring disorder

what will be left to say
when nothing is the same
and all this shit goes under

sticking out behind the mask
kiss the mercantile absess
rubbed behind each fertile blood
the fingernails are dirty

face the combination loss
then go towards the final cost
crippled debts a lost foothold
words so unconvincing

i’m closed off devours the meat inside of me in freeing all afraid of life eternity

    General CommentThe samples "where you gonna go" are from the 1993 remake of bodysnatchers.…

    Someone on darklyrics who hadn't seen the movie took a crack at transcribing the quotes, that tipped me off how far from the mark the rest of it is. I'm pretty sure this attempt at the lyrics is copied from there.

    General CommentYeah, this is probably a better overall song than "Magnifishit", but I just can't make sense of it's meaning.... except for perhaps a hint of a World-Wide financial disaster.... ?

    General Commentright right. something to the effect of:
    "where are you going to go?" Where are you going to run?" "where are you going to hide?" "there is no one like you left."

    -addendum on dal
    one not owning up to responsibility for their actions, needs, and debts to the environment sustaining it. a doll running on an unrealistic diet of infinite resources where they're, in all actuality, quickly running out for everyone.
    consumers who contribute nothing and continuously post date the same phony check for their tab they'll never really pay but only roll out more promises for reconciliation in some undefined future.

    "dal" is also the first syllable in "doll-ar..." hence, never paid up, never completed, closed off, denying any end to the bill and the impending reality check.

    one is often surprised when simply asking Ogre the correct line in this or that song... the transcriptions are a very tedious and difficult task.
    i'm well aware we don't really know a lot of the lyrics, even where lines "sound" obvious, we have been corrected so many times on these things already... it would be arrogant and naive to believe i'm actually right about half the transcription work i've done with Mythmaker and i certainly do not...
