lyrics

Life is a film that no one is watching; so play any part, you’ll be a star,
Guess I’ll portray, the lovely guy, invisible, until he dies
Self analyze, until there’s nothing left, but empty shells and pointlessness
Tell all my friends, that I love them, but if they cared, guess they’d just know it
Identities well I’ll build mine cheap in factories to meet the briefs
Of sloganeers, that keep us sweet and forget about our dignity
Selling personalities they’re telling me, how I should feel
Reality is a spectacle, shaping all the worst mentalities
Abandoned pasts, Attention spans, Self educate, No middle ground
Then kindly does it, my ideals, I miss you more than possible
Where in Marianas lowest trench, ill be content with need nothing
Everything’s kind of eventual and has opened up my centerfolds

I’m a Dandelion, Starry cat, crywank, flat sound, happy gas
I’m a broken record, break up song, impossible unimpressionable
I’m Benzedrine, helium tanks, copper ribbon, citalopram
I’m Altruistic, moral codes, symbolic feats blind ambition
With nowhere to stand, No parachutes, so uninspired, disappointed
Yet another message sent, a message seen, a message read, fuck this life is hell
Asked for directions and all I got, was lost in my own troubled head
There is a door somewhere they said, you’ll find it when you drink my friend
Wanna save someone just like me, from balance beams or having dreams
I know it sounds, unreasonable; but something’s are just too hard to believe
Is it just me? Or is it really, no one is free, as they make it seem
Stick to the plan, we’re posturing to affrimate then Chicken Out
