Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Welcome to my Makeshift Kingdom
Spaceship engines
Inca, Maya
Lakota, Tsimshian
Africa risin
Middle East churning
We don't give a fuck, let the griddle keep burning
Truth be told we nuclear souls
Indigo, in the cold, new to these zones
Carbon based body make a suitable home
My temporary temple, I'm soon to be gone
Fly, pelican fly to the moon
Jupiter, Lucifer, high from the shroom
Underworld chilling with Osiris and gloom
You in the jungle running like Elijah's platoon
Watch us rise from the tomb
Crystaline dreams civilized the baboon
You liars are doomed
I'm standing in the fire screaming I am the truth, let's go

[Hook]
Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome
Welcome to my Makeshift Kingdom
Welcome, welcome, welcome, welcome
Welcome to my Makeshift Kingdom
Everything that was
Everything that is
Everything that will be, everything is this
Welcome to my Makeshift
Welcome to my Makeshift
Welcome to my Makeshift Kingdom

[Verse 2]
None of it even matters
Cause we ain't even matter
We taking it making it
Just from repeating patterns
Reenactments
Trying to see some truth
But it's buried far deeper than we can reach and path this
The same fabric of space we inhabit where we imagine these elaborate dreams
And haven't even ever seen
A fraction
Of what we really are
It's silly all we care about is cash and
Other such attachments
Keeping our minds absent
And inactive
Trapped in the same place we have been for so long
Confusing territories with the maps in our minds
Too distracted to find where the path is
Blind to the vastness
Trying to move forward just inclined to go backwards
Time just elapses
Searching for the side where the grass is
Greener 'til we leave our bodies lying in a casket

[Hook]

[Verse 3/Outro]
Whatever happens, happens
Whatever doesn't, doesn't
I guess it is what it is, what it was wasn't
What I thought it was, it wasn't what I thought it wasn't
What I thought it was, it wasn't what I thought it wasn't

Whatever happens, happens
Whatever doesn't, doesn't
I guess it is what it is, what it was wasn't
What I thought it was, it wasn't what I thought it wasn't
Welcome to my Makeshift Kingdom

[Hook]
