lyrics

The potency of Marshall Applewhite.
The poisoning of Socrates.
The last breath of Malcolm X.
The tragedy of Jackie’s Kennedy.

And with bleak thoughts I despair. There is no hope left in this world. Society corrupts the air, breathe in those toxins and choke.

And with bleak thoughts I despair. Is history destined to repeat? Extremity breeds injustice. Injustice seeds the extreme.

I've seen the future. I've seen the futures failures.

Tell me how we all rise above this.
Tell me how we all get up and push through this.
Society will never rise above this.
Society will never get up and push through this.

Human Instinct. The one true disease.
Human nature. The one true disease.

Cover up my eyes. Fill up my lungs.
Blacken my veins. Sever my heart.
Drown out those thoughts. Ignore all those fears.
Drain out my blood. Wipe away the tears.

The failures in life you see no God. Just tragedies of man you see.
The failures in life you see no God. Just tragedies of man you see.

The horrors in life you see no God. Just failures of man you see.
The sadness in life you see no God. Just failures of man you see.

Please remove yourself from my dreams.
Please remove yourself from my dreams.

Just need a long term fix, to spare my sanity.
Just need to sleep forever to escape from this reality.
Feeling that dread and despair, held up against my lungs.
Breathing in oh god, what have I've become?

I have to come to terms with all the things that I've done.
Looking back at the past where there is nowhere left to run.
Is this the end my friend? Never even say our last goodbyes?
Never wave farewell, just depart towards autumn skies.

I stand alone. Destitute. Devoid of all hope. Of everything.
Now, forever, we walk away, a distance apart, side by side,
Left abandoned, wandering and suffering, in silence.
