Outshined with closed minds
We’re stale as hell, euphoric lives
Let’s redefine this flat line
We’re paralyzed
Rewind look back on time
Quiet death bell, selfish zip line
Let’s redefine this flat line
We’re paralyzed and
I’ve got tombstones for eyes
-and I realize
-and I recognize
-in a web of lies
Manhandled and mangled
Suffocated and strangled
Self-medicate this anger and hate
My prayers have been dead
And the guilt I can taste
When, why and where
I simply don’t care
The question is how
To measure sin and what’s fair
Born and bred and left for dead
The taste of life
Went through my head
