Punctuality is important
To Me
So come on in, breathe it in
Breathe the sin that breathes
Life to me.

So here we go
Start the show
Touch and go and
In waves you'll see

And then you sense
My hesitance
Throw a wrench in the
Whole damn thing

The anger you side with
Walks in through the door
You break it down
To the ground
And you fall to the floor
Facade you cry
Impostor you scream
But I know the reasons
You're too blind to see

That awkward moment
When the mainstream becomes the fringe
And then it clings desperately
To over dramatic hyperbole

The anger you side with
Is only a bore
Put it down under a sound
And they call you a whore
Charade you imply
Impossible scream
But I still know the reasons
You're too blind to see

You tipped the scales
But out of your favor
(They Always Let You Down)
Separating the sight from sound
The disappointment was killed
By dubious means

Get over the bridge
Still under the fire
(It burns in such a special way)
Instincts over anxiety
Smoke signals the air
And vengeance still reigns king

It was a suicide note
Maybe a quiet love letter
And I can't quite seem
Yo recall the subject matter,
Doesn't matter, Of fact,
Over mind your own business
And the serial number
Isn't close to the original
Post dramatic distress
A convergence of self deceit
A divergence of what I mean
And sarcasm in between
Stuck underneath
Unknowing and confidence
With literacy as a weapon
And wit as self defense

I'll shut you down
Before you speak
Contrived or other
Pay attention
Don't make peace
With one or another way
