Lyrics by Andrew Krolikowski

Honey, it's a shark-bait mind,
Yeah, the junkyard kind.
Your fossil-filled attic, your cobwebbed compromise.
Put a little force in it.
Make love without consent
And watch your all knowing god avert his eyes
to the truth
that was built upon itself
that rejected anybody else.
I often wish that I had died when I was young,
that way, I'd never have to disappoint no one.

It's playing on a static screen
coming from the ghost machine.
You'll trade for good nightmares
against all your bad dreams.
No, my heroes weren't saints
but they went down anyway,
All laid down as martyrs for nothing
but martyrdom's sake.
To the fear they would succumb.
Without seeing all the things they could become.
But I still wish that I had died when i was young.
That way, I'd never have to disappoint no one.

The future turned out not so different from the past.
All the best get stoned to death.
