lyrics

people are parasites

cutting down trees
for paper that's make-believe
building a cage around
drawing lines in the ground
we're too scared
too be loud
we refuse
to call out
those looking for treasure
in ways they can measure
the same thing forever
and won't call it murder
impact and danger
hold back our anger
hide behind laughter
on the brink of disaster

we've got
no concept of time after
we've got
no concept of time

we're guided by panic
blind, deaf and frantic
what if time isn't static?
like we're made of elastic
we stretch till we snap
and every action is
brilliant or tragic
the smell of burnt plastic
we can't imagine
the sound of the damage
we're taking advantage
shallow and selfish
we're so fucking clueless
we've rendered this useless

we call
we call ourselves human
and we call
we call ourselves

we can't survive without this
we can't survive without this
we won't survive so fuck him
i won't be forced to,
handle these storms or
silence those words that
hang off of sunken ships

we need dramatic
excuses for havoc
finding distractions
like some kind of addict
attached to chaotic
strings tied with tact
and it tastes like a trap
thats cluttered with traffic

we can't survive without this
we can't survive without this
we won't survive so fuck him
i won't be forced to
handle these storms or
silence these words that
hang off of sunken ships

people are parasites
