lyrics

Self abuse feels so enlightening
Divine release from up above
The void enjoys its weekend custody
And does its best to buy your love
With a sideways glance
A pat on the ass
And a little hit of dopamine

I just want to feel
Something other than my life
Being crushed inside the vice
The world’s engulfed in flames
So we’re dancing on our graves
To try and pass the time
It’s okay to cry
When smoke gets in your eyes

We’re bored reading our own obituaries
The bottle serves the genie well
His anesthesia’s what the people need
To keep on working in this hell
If you work hard enough
And get employee of the month
You’ll win a gift card to Applebee’s

I just want to feel
Something other than my life
Being crushed inside the vice
The world’s engulfed in flames
So we’re dancing on our graves
To try and pass the time
It’s okay to cry
When smoke gets in your eyes

I hate this place
Nothing works here
I’ve been here 35 years
The medications don’t work...

I just want to feel
Something other than my life
Being crushed inside the vice
The world’s engulfed in flames
So we’re dancing on our graves
To try and pass the time
It’s okay to cry
When smoke gets in your eyes
