lyrics

GENETIC ROULETTE

(a.)
In the wrong and right
Absence of delight
You're the depth of height
Waiting for weights to sleight

You make medicine
Out of love and sin
For my harlot skin
Whimsical mannequin

You're a zoephobe
In hermetic robe
As the torments strobe
Pulsing fanatic globe

You're the concubine
For knowledge design
You're the ethic-twain
Birth/Death pain
(chorus)
There is a man in the living room
He is building himself a golden tomb
Out of the earthen womb
Out of the morning - into the night

In the rumor mill
Where the smalltalk swill
Pokes the holes to fill
Up with the dread of hell

What we all deserve
When our morals swerve
When the guns unnerve
Our vim and vigor verve

We're just suits for brains
We're just mops for stains
Thoughts without their trains
Sewage all through our veins

This is how it goes
This is all we know
This: the tell and show
Brains to blow
(chorus)

(b.)
Surely I have not always been wrong
All along the boulevard disguised as ravens
Pickin' at the corpses of our youth
A shiny copper penny for each tooth

(c.)
I'm just a baby
A little tiny baby
A whiny - snotty - young kid
I don't wanna die
I just want the world to stop
When I begin to cry

I want some candy
I am commanding
I am quite handy with a gun
I must remind
If I don't get what I want
Just how much you're gonna find

This sweet kid's gonna blow you open wide
Teach this flock the ropes of genocide
Life is just the chains that death abides

(d.)
In a sequence of vague damnations
We're beginning to lose our patience
Hope wanes - love is the vampire draining

Take your medicine and do your homework
Don't be a coward - don't be a dick
Long days - shortening with every malaise

Sure I could be doing more
But isn't that what everyone else is for?
