lyrics

i can barely curl my lips' corners
i've forgotten how to move my mouth
insanity creeps into the brain
only nonsensical mumbling comes out
what's the point, i can't communicate
this madness makes me so fucking irate
resigned to a life of pseudo-lucidity
acceptance of circumstance and my fate of idiocy
ropes around my body on a fucking train track
time's the one going places and i'm always tied to this path
stagnant body, stagnant mind, empty life, empty head
how many times have these words been said
in the same way too
i say and think nothing new
this is the purgatory of the post-modern present
and you rationalize, hey we got cushions in these cages
walls of secondhand experience closing in on consciousness
waves of anxiety crashing in on my brain
it starts as a seed, a bug of irksome inconvenience
the academy has no answers for me
i am sharp teeth and everything else is television
but in knowing my nature, i still can't resist it
chemicals cause suffering, more chemicals alleviate
counterbalance the mental imbalance
with a manmade substance made for me
but is it my consciousness or just this fucked future
no future for me
