lyrics

weighing the options
gazing upon receding shores
do what is proper
selfish, selfless, heretofore?


to this point a failure
maps what not to do
this life serves as warning
(an honest review)
color’s gone
it’s monochrome
every single day

who pursues sycophants?
violent truth
friction day

denying self, avoiding mirrors
phobic reaction
from the west, breath of Zephyr
sigh of setting moon

it declares—it’s done, a rest
starting on this day

forsake love
no sex appeal
shark, legs
taking over sin
vulgar onto sin
(naturally choose)
sans money
rich in ideals
shark, legs
they’re taking over
sin
vulgar onto sin
(naturally choose)
sans money
rich in ideals
junk it
they’re taking over
sin—an opportunist

(don’t waste them)

weighing the options
gazing upon receding shores
do what is proper
selfish, selfless, heretofore?

a trinket for the future souls
pry it off, it’s cool
mementos from headstones
among corrupted youth

color’s gone
it’s monochrome
every single day

who pursues sycophants?
violent truth
friction day
grinding wheel
grinding down
grandiose
