Day spent in bright-lit city, With sounds of market-tongues, Word here, phrase empty, Nothing is ever gone. We’re bound to wander, From block to block to room. Lift me up, keep me up, Beyond the heat of this tomb. And how I, Long for, Those days when, Words were mere words. Night spent in toxic city, With sounds of young-marred tongues, Lift me up, keep me up, Beyond is never gone. And how I, Long for, Those days when, Words were mere words. And how I - let it align. It was won restraint, From a phrase empty. Childlike anthems, The phrase of plenty. Day spent in bright-lit city, With sounds of market-tongues. Fixed against forever, Beyond is never gone. Your tools are death to me, With sounds of what would be, Words here, yet so empty, It’s never wronged.

It’s what they would write... You know what will happen. Fixed, altered, in every way. An assertion profession, And the indifference of your adversaries. There’s a time, When they will win. There's not an answer, To every question. First shot misses. Ride out the day, Consider it a warning. Few notes that you bray In violence we’re drowning. There is a time, When they will win. There's not an answer, To every question. First shot misses. You know what we’re trapped in, Exit obscured and out of sight. As it all wears thin, remember… This is what they would write! You know what will happen. Fixed, altered, in every way. An assertion profession, And the indifference of your adversaries. So what are we waiting for?

What's that your actions told us, As you pandered away, Like a metered dosing. Keep your clamor, Far away, Lost all sense, And broken. Time is fleeting, What's it for? Time is wasted, On what you say. Vented nothing, Outrage of day. Played your hand And it’s utter exhaustion Falsely acquainted, Open sore, So willingly wanted. Clutching peace, As a shield from me, That will shatter on force. Time is fleeting, What's it for? Time is wasted, On what you say. Vented nothing Outrage of day. Played your hand And it’s all I’m waiting for. Time’s fleeting Running out So what’s it for? Want to break that running thought One-sided A one-sided war...

Wanting Time 01:30
Something in my heart says Triumph is an awkward age It ended as it began With a warning: do not engage. Something in my head says Silent teeth lie in state Measures of what you have All taken in volume and weight. And while it is sounding this woeful warning, It wants nothing more than to cover the crime. And while it is sounding this pitiful warning, It counts on the passage of time. Endless time.

Wanting time. Endless time. (Wanting time)

A pyrrhic victory, calling over the din, The lonely moan, of the next battlefield. You shot that mouth at all you ever knew, Howitzer phones, I'll question the value. Shot that mouth at all you ever knew, Defining a truth that wasn't even true. When you think...you're the one true...genius, But you’re really just...a noisy corpse... A pyrrhic victory, calling over the din, A treaty wrote, and then signed in sin, You shot that mouth at all you ever knew, Through smoke and pills, I could barely hear you, Shot that mouth at all you ever knew, Defining a truth that wasn't even you. When you think When you do Shot that mouth at all you ever knew... Howitzer phones, I'll question the value. Shot that mouth at all you ever knew... Defining a truth that wasn't true. Shot that mouth at all you ever knew... Through smoke and pills, I could barely hear you, Shot that mouth at all you ever knew... Defining a truth that wasn't even you. Wasn't true. Wasn’t true. Wasn't you.

Those subtle symbols, they’re not so subtle, They only aim to sedate. Forsaking beauty, they only want to intimidate. Direct function it can only equate. When it’s all fools -- and firebrands, Glorifying -- a promised land, They’ll kindly tell you -- where to stand. Ever closer to hell. Those subtle symbols, they’re not so subtle They only aim to sedate. Forsaking beauty, they only want to intimidate. Direct function does all to negate. Within reach -- of arson’s hand, Struck with spite -- and set to land Interest-backed -- and idiot-fanned, Ever closer to hell. There's is no trick -- to understand, The hidden joy – of their demands, A long game, engineered and planned, But you can even tell?

Count the days - between the warring, That's good enough for all of you. Currency has - a fetal heartbeat, Make sure to protect the make-believe revenue. Edit the distance in your mind To points beyond the undefined Edit the distance in your mind Count the days - over the roaring, It's good enough, just pull through. Currency thrives - on subtle cheats, Make sure you do all you can to accrue. And edit the distance in your mind To points beyond the undefined Edit the distance in your mind Count the days - between the warring Count the days - over the roaring Count the days - of markets soaring That seems good enough for all you.

No chance, close now, That’s where you want it. No chance, close now, That’s where you want it. You raise the flag buried in words, Reinvent language, meaning inferred, That’s where you want it, Capital is at prime. No chance, close now, you’re out of time. So what did you sell yours for? You should have asked for a little bit more. You raise a flag buried in words, Entrancing those aligned with the absurd. So what did yours sell for? You should have asked for a little bit more. Until we’re all crushed. But at least you got yours, A fuck-the-rest advancer. And, what did you sell yours for? You should have asked for a little bit more. I think we all see, it’s the wrong war. No chance, close now, That’s where you want it. No chance, close now, That’s how you want it. And, what did you sell yours for? You should have asked for a little bit more. You should have asked for, for just a little bit more.

There's only one, surefire way to stop you. Attack vectors set, releasing at high noon. And I saw a movie about all this once too. It ended, One, One, Five, Nine, it's over, we're through. We're through...to stop you. Words stockpiled, and often spoken too soon. And someone once said something about all this too... It just takes a moment, a silent moment, we’re through. We’re through There is only one surefire way to stop you. Attack vectors set, releasing at high noon. And I saw a movie about all this once too. It ended, One, One, Five, Nine, it's over, we're through. We’re through There’s only one, surefire way to stop you. Lights out, lines cut - I’m calling a new tune. And you keep saying something about all this too. But it wasn't the words that you spoke that finally cut through.
