lyrics

VERSE 1:
Scabby septum got you talking out your rectum
About these family issues like your Garry Glitters step son
Dandruff on this debit card haemoglobin on the queens face
A non descriptive vocab explaining how a dream tastes
I couldn't give a fuck what the scene rates
Or more to the point give a fuck what the scene hates
Writing slow flows to burial
All over the place like a drone blown mural
Your veneer smile is ugly my gold ones no better
False smiles real feelings dialogues of sad letters
So no, we shouldn't take a selfie
We should probably put the bag away and get our heads healthy
Red sky at night sunrise Wetherspoons delight
For inebriated souls consuming breakfast and pints
One for sorrow two for joy the rest are for the fuck of it
There's levels to these issues we brought depression to the mother ship

HOOK:
I lost my mind at war with life
Another day in paradise
I'm burning down this web of lies
But it's hard to watch them burn
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard...

VERSE 2:
Her arms looked like a wall out of Auschwitz
No cosmetic aesthetics just long sleeved outfits
She makes that Cat Stevens song look like a fucking mockery
They blew up her husband around the same time as her property
Corporate boardrooms discussing sanctions on her borders
Medieval health care will not put legs back on her daughter
Can a blind man be a visionary?
Patient zeros at the revolution dishing out that dysentery
The freedom of fuck all mass gatherings get hosed down
Roaming around Nazareth in search of a rose crown
But what did you find there?
Addiction, whores, the most appalling of nightmares
And you can go ahead and try
But you're deluded if you think the world will listen to a grown man cry
They won't celebrate your birthday but they'll turn up when you die
With a eulogy of lies whilst you get crucified

HOOK:
I lost my mind at war with life
Another day in paradise
I'm burning down this web of lies
But it's hard to watch them burn
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard...

BRIDGE:
And when I turned my back on me I lost this fight
I watched this ego tear apart itself with pride
Innocence got lost and trapped in time
And it hurts to fall apart
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard...

HOOK:
I lost my mind at war with life
Another day in paradise
I'm burning down this web of lies
But it's hard to watch them burn
It's hard, it's hard, it's hard, it's hard...
