if we get one chance at all,
it'll take a miracle to not bash our skulls
straight through the mirror & into the wall,
where all the bugs & the critters crawl

it’s true — i never needed a friend
to have my back
when my back was against the coast
i’m turning into a ghost
every dog i know wants to bury my bones

so bury my bones

it’s true — i’m better off alone
this is the last time i conceal below
the mud
so roll me up in a rug,
lay my head on the tracks,
make me part of your past

make me part of your past

there’s no excuse for what you do to you
a vulture through time,
you live just to eat the dying

consumer habits are consuming you
you want it all & everything too
you eat your cake in a padded room
but even monsters are people too
