lyrics

butterflies grounded because their wings have been cauterized
told they were never able to fly
filled with broken lies
lies that did nothing but terrified
left with serious thoughts
paralyzed
for fear of crippling boredom we try to break all ties
and it’s not life but death time buys
deadly hearts burnt to the ground and compromised
caught in each others arms
desperate lovers electrify all that’s been surmised
sifting and sinking out of love
the girl cries
silent sentinel
running through the fields breathless does nothing but sighs
at the sight of power as it first falls
then gets up and continues to rise


imperfect crimes drift away
and fall to the wayside because it’s unrealized
that it wasn’t what you originally intended to plunder
no
it wasn’t the prize
nor was it the red-baron heartless miser
but it was the tell-all confider
the dangerous but trust-worthy whiner
the sexless sensual buyer
the alienated homeland foreign crier
filthy forgotten taste-tester who tried her
grotesquely underestimated flyer
posted on the wall went unread bu the liar
whose original motives never truly changed
for he believed he was our sire
and he believed he would lock the doors
and set the whole audience on fire
because it was not his tastes we acquired
but our own exposures we tired
fought nail and tooth as he was dragged out into the humid mire
we all gathered and watched and couldn’t help but admire
for we learned that nothing could make you fly
nothing can take you higher
nothing can enlighten you more than
the smell of ones own burning flesh in ones own funeral pyre
