lyrics

I’ve got a minor inclination
To jump of a bridge or two
To dive in head first
From some golden gates of doom
Theres a dark cloud above me
Packed with acid rain
These days I tend to the streets alone
A self made man of clay

Life is tasteless and complacent
Missing inspiration
There’s a drummer in my head
With an everlasting lack of syncopation
It’s perpetual project
To build a palace for the muse
I’ve cleared all the rubble from the building site
But my plans are so confused

I need a little tenderness
Nothing more nothing less
I want a band of saints to clear my body
Try find some heat in my breast

Bitterness ain’t a flattering color
It rubs into you skin like sand
I heard a wise man once say
That even a dog can shake hands
Like those brownnose friends of mine
Whose talentless drivel won’t suffice
They are but pawns in a game of chess
First ones to get sacrificed
