I don't sleep that well most nights Find me howling at the moon instead Hairs bristle at the back of my neck At the scent of the midnight air Something's changed inside of me Corrupted me down to my core Darkness takes over me And then I am no more Hunger cuts through my bones And the wind carries your scent I want to wrap myself in your entrails Sink my teeth in your neck I flash you a smile And you crawl right into my lap "Well all the better to eat you, my dear" You've fallen right into my trap I'd hide myself in the clothes of a sheep (Sneak into your house) But the wool is bursting at the seams (Climb in through your window) So I run into the shadows to hide (Tear the place apart) Close my eyes and pray for morning (And leave before you find me) Call off your hunters, find a safe place to hide When the clock strikes midnight, I'll be dead inside Lock up your husbands, and protect your sons Cause they won't be the same, when I'm done Don't get too close to me I'll rip your heart out with my bare hands Don't even get anywhere near me I've become the monster I never wanted to be.
Ides - Mecha 02:18
Titan of a man Sixteen stories high Sentience achieved Flesh and mind of steel Smog haze rolls through A wounded ozone sky No need for a sun We are gods now All shall falter Crushed beneath an iron fist Today is ours We've become unstoppable Now we all shall pay The price to live this way All shall falter Crushed beneath an iron fist Today is ours We've become unstoppable Now we all must die Burnt flesh and twisted metal Our own ambitions will be our downfall Bow down to the powers that be: Science, logic, and technology.
Sirens at the break of dawn Echo off concrete I pull my bedsheets closer As if to protect me Every day I wake up this way Bitter cold to the touch and dissociative Shrug my collar to my face Eyes pressed straight ahead Feet quicken underneath Walk down these broken streets A crooked path, I crawl on bloody knees Inching from the fate chosen for me Bred solely for consumption, self-made complacency Hobble both my legs, and just let me be So I try not to lose myself every single day To the winds of institution, or the kiss of apathy So we'll sink just like Atlantis, our Gomorrah will go up in flames Unless we rise up on our own Our own two feet Our shackles will break us, if we don't break them Break them first.
Sharks prowl the clubs and they're looking for meat, sniffing for blood and dropping lines of deceit. Over masculine minds, hollow hearts shallow souls, cultural trends taking the toll but it sure ain't the booze and it sure ain't the sex, just meek minds, games of complacency, mindlessness, fraud, faux self-defeat they bait the line and... Treated like hooks on the flesh of the waist, fuck me! Skins of liars/weak bones wear thin. Lies! Carved from the stone all plaster, no bone just the shell of a plastic god. Lies! Please don't feed me the bullshit you bleed out your mouth
