Lyrics
I can't see the light. I'm thrown in disgust
They speak of feats... the housed forever
A howling wind changed my course
It blew me out of bounds so sore
All the walls, all the walls that bound me
Descending bleak and put upon

I chew my cheeks to wake up from
A vase grows bigger to my eyes
These eyes that snigger and despise
A wall grows taller up to doom

Shoes in my room, thrown in disgust
At how I fall to my worst
Of course you say you don't understand
Your words, your fiction, your crooked hands

But clearly now, I tell you man
That all I say Is all I can
For I am nothing but my sin
Until I learn to caste them in

While young girls fangs and crystal wrists
Wait patiently for me to twist
I look away to distant rains
To water falls and honey days
And boys in black and blue rinse eyes
Gaze whistly at my slender thighs

I twist a shade to my right
And spit at beelzebub on sight
And go on loving all I see
For here I live on patiently
Clearly now, I tell you man
That all I say Is all I can
For I am nothing but my sin
Until I learn to caste them in
