lyrics

Sometimes it takes a man awhile
Just to get by
Hunger and need
A subtle beast indeed
In the end it is but not on the way
They're just cheap shots
From the cheap seats
Everyone gets their say
I bought into a myth
No one can survive
I'm a fatalist and I won't progress
Unless I'm anything but right
I'm sitting bitch in deliverance
Sweating bullets for significance
I'm stealing fire
Burned a hole in the sky
Brought a knife into a gun fight
Nothings shocking
Nothings sacred
Just ideas to play with
I'm a stranger
I'm a drifter
A charalatan interloper
Fucking tourist
I don't belong here
I'm just your distraction
Oh, honey please
I think thats the attraction
Forgotten lines
Such a toxic gift
Wrapped up nice and tight
In your hermetic myth
Nothings shocking
Nothings sacred
Ideas and fornication
Circus barker, soap-box
Lounge singer, mountaintop
Let me tell ya
I know a thing or two
About self sabotage
No wonder men become our gods
All of us up against these odds
A funeral pyre
Rockets from the crypt
I brought a knife this time
But now you're fighting with fists
Nothings shocking
Nothings sacred
Boy, was you mistaken!

Running on hubris, fumes and parades of exhibition, this acoustic debut lingered as an idea then ballooned into an ambitious navel-gazing interpretation of the Book Of Revelation. I was gonna ask permission, but... ... more
