Welcome to 202020 A.D By A.D I mean after death, insect city Would you stand on a roach But sit there folding knitted jumpers? To place upon your pedigree chum All our dreams of phantasy Are melting into lunacy We sit there staring at our screens Sliding down and reading things A reverie of make believe Of pretend lives of misery Distraction might just kill us all The wave we made might make this planet blue And drown us fucking all When they started putting the orcas in bath tubs When they started clipping budgies wings How would you like a prison sentence? Then why you wanna play god? All our dreams of phantasy Are melting into lunacy We sit there staring at our screens Sliding down and reading things A reverie of make believe Of pretend lives of misery Distraction might just kill us all The wave we made might make this planet blue And drown us fucking all All our dreams of phantasy Are melting into lunacy We sit there staring at our screens This information The wave we made might make this planet blue And drown us fucking all

Monday Man 03:45
It's seems to be moving real fast, to fast to understand The weekends roll on over deja vu, revive, repeat And when I should be getting sleep I dance these cobblestone streets To give my tiny time meaning How can we dream When we're stuck in this routine? I'm television static On a Monday Like a Bengal tiger I'm high as a kite Your ribbons are chains That big cat barely remains And your in the photo Cause I dance these cobblestone streets To give my tiny time meaning How can we dream When we're stuck in this routine? I'm television static On a Monday When I wake my organs shake They are unhappy with my mistakes Like sleeping tigers, I dreamed of it And screeching clocks, they melt ticking How can we dream When we're stuck in this routine? I'm television static On a Monday How can we dream When we're stuck in this routine? I'm television static On a Monday

Beached whales, fat cats, black holes, black rats Cause beached whales, fat cats, black holes, black rats Crushed by weight, our lungs they break Then we choke, then we cry Then like flies, like flies we die Spread out the beach flippers, flapless Blubber full of rubber, of tyres they thought were liquorice Crushed by weight, our lungs they break Then we choke, then we cry Then like flies, like flies we die How can you be this? Darling I've been here before without you How can you be this? Darling I've been here before without you How can you be this? Darling I've been here before without you How can you be this? Darling I've been here before without you Violent water take me Choking on rubber tyres and disposable straws Spoiled water take me

It's the faces in the walls They whisper over to me But I can't hear them anyway Cause my ears are humming From a 500w transistor But it's those sound waves that keep me from drowning myself in a bath tub My body hung like festive lanterns That were forgotten to be lit And somebody's frozen and still Like a Choc Ice or dead mice Or emperor penguins surviving the artic There's a darkness down in Chinatown Where the staggered streets and concrete frowns still Still get me down Don't float off away Tied ribbons just stay If you float away Our bodies let go Somebody's entombed underground Like pharaohs with organs in clay pots Tinted with gold but I'm digging holes, not my grave though Cause I'm climbing out of these walls, these walls Cause every time I reach my peak I'm face to face with an avalanche There's a darkness down in Chinatown Where the staggered streets and concrete frowns still Still get me down Don't float off away Tied ribbons just stay If you float away Our bodies let go Blood in the water His eyes roll black Halcyon pools of gore Falling in front of it All of these times crushing Under a ten ton lorry Cause I can't pretend How I feel about you anymore

They couldn't seem to rid a plague A fear of an eternal grave Turns blood against affinity Why can't you love us equally? They couldn't seem to rid a plague A fear of an eternal grave Turns blood against affinity Why can't you love us equally? Can't quite shake it The gripping pious hands A glowing promise land With infinite white sand Ancient scriptures turn blood against blood Turn fathers on sons, it's as cold as the night They couldn't seem to rid a plague A fear of an eternal grave Turns blood against affinity Why can't you love us equally? Can't quite shake it The words are scribbled in They're scratched in my arms When language comes verse Ancient scriptures turn blood against blood Turn fathers on sons, it's as cold as the night They couldn't seem to rid a plague A fear of an eternal grave Turns blood against affinity Why can't you love us equally? They couldn't seem to rid a plague A fear of an eternal grave Let go, let go, let go, let go Let go, let go, let go, let go
