lyrics

Come listen to me
and I'll show you the way out of your missery and all your pain
I wouldn't say
that today is better than another
only that another day is one more prayer
God damn whatever god put you away and let you scream in vain
Don't you believe anything they say
Just chime with me

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea

Don't you feel like screaming out to all those kindred spirits out there and tell them:
«This world is not for us!»

So I come to you once again in your sleep,
but this time there is something different
A change?
You still seem listless, unwilling to go on
Yet not quite ready to let go

I contemplate our existance;
what's outside our subjective reality

Listen, what is life but a slave to eternal death and decay?
A fleeting moment of insignificant resistance against the inevitable

Time kills all life, time kills me
Time kills all life, time kills you

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea

I'm not gonna fall in line and fall behind like the rest of the fucking herd
You pinstripe cock sucker's not gonna pin me down to a desk, I'd rather die
Than walk a mile in your misserable fucking shoes, you piece of shit!
You just sit there and rot while I mock your insignificance

«You see their smiles, nodding, laughing
Masks, pretences...
No one's gonna hurt you here. (They all lie to you)
I promise you I'll make them go away!»

I'm broken and hung out to dry
(I cannot breathe the air)
Frail and suffocating every day
(Tormented and strung out I cannot feel)
Tormented and strung out I cannot feel
Burn me up and take me out to sea, yeah

If you wake up tomorow in utter failure, I'll tell you this: when Death fails there is..
NO WAY TO DIE!
