You must destroy
All who you employ
To protect your last invention
Work hard it's destruction
Ignore your good intention
You must ignore the wrong voice
Whose voice
A peculiar choice
Well I'm sure
You and I can't remember
Living like a backwards trainwreck
Trying to disguise the deceit
Intrinsic in our step
When love's got us by the neck
Why can't we just surrender

I'll be quiet
I won't wake you up

Don't whine
Drink wine
Like terpentine
Cleaning out your inside in line
From your toes up through your spine
Pretend you're a conductor
Maestro without music
God without man
Me without you
Holding your hand
Falling like a leaf
Crying like a man

We silently confess through open eyes
Setting fire to the web spun right behind
In my mind's a spider
And in your heart's a fly
When you're meek you are malicious
Somehow still suspicious
Faithlessly religious
