lyrics

(variex)
the fear of never accomplishing a dream has become a possibility
seems like it's been twenty years that I've been lost at sea
but I've fought to keep my head above whitecaps when my body sinks
into the bottom feeding siren song that's calling me
I can't give a walking talking flying fuck about what's popular, when
everything on earth remains a product worth more than our words
stay blissfully ignorant and willingly oblivious
to the advertising brainwashing our children
so pray to whatever god you might believe in for the future
human extinction couldn't relieve us any sooner from
reptilian politicians and continuously repressed citizens
what wouldn't you do for a million, might as well keep killing them
in the land of the free, the american dream is not for you and I
they'll pursue your genocide and never try to see through your eyes
but still tell you you're blind, we are not puppets
with enough drops in the bucket to say fuck this and rise above it

(rawbeartoe)
everything is temporary has become my catchphrase
nothing is as permanent or fluid as a cascade
pressure building fully living moments in these last days
lessons from our past we never care to learn and can't change

(variex)
up out of the chaos we are living in the last days
who would you expect to finish first in the rat race
when you compromise your voice to keep up in the fast lane
might as well keep calm and watch our generation back pace

(rawbeartoe)
you know how life goes
each day's a stormy one and sometimes it's a cyclone
it shakes our trees and plenty of plots are dropped like pinecones
all of this wind and yet I still can't hit the high notes
I hate the breeze but I'll just float and keep my eyes closed
formally open, totally focused on loads of misfortunate mishaps
lately only to slip back, laziness is a syntax
I've been noticing motives have taken the liberty, raping and pillaging
making me feel that I haven't achieved anything worthy enough to believe in
I even it out, I'm odd for that reason alone in my doubt
I need to be wanted to breathe in the morning
I'll leave when it's obvious, I even it out
