I said I'm sorry it's personal and no one here can understand because it's tiring inescapable and no one cares to lend a hand and no one cares to lend a hand and the crowd roars we've heard it all before you're not the first to feel the stone and you don't have to face this world alone I said I'm sorry improbable I'm gonna have to take a stand it had to happen I'm dangerous and you'll never see this face again and you'll never see this face again and the crowd roars we've heard it all before you're not the first to feel the stone and you don't have to face this world alone but the voices are lost in the noises I can't get the message straight so I'll just have to leave it all to fate

The Offering 05:29
if resistance is gone from your lexicon can you still learn to overcome? mass communication via neural penetration mass hallucination de-evolving soul sensations if the measure of existence is consumerism be careful what goes in your mouth mass communication via neural penetration mass hallucination de-evolving soul sensations let's all pray our circuits stay this way it can't be any worse than afterlife against the current FILL THE VOID FEED THE FIRE if resistance is gone from your lexicon can you still learn to overcome? if the language is hard for you to comprehend is anything being said at all? mass communication via neural penetration mass hallucination de-evolving soul sensations let's all pray our circuits stay this way it can't be any worse than afterlife against the current and you will see another way to be if you can find it in yourself to accept this offering

she's living in a world where all is black and that's just fine by me an illusionary trace of pain on her face is all that i can see it's true that i'd love her as she's bleeds on my world there's not much i can do to stop the red sea or the ecstasy of her thoughts that i can't see through i'd hit the ceiling to see her throne because she's the queen so very clean of the evil i have sown queen of the bathtub she's dying in a world where i can't be and that's just fine by her she's trading all her tears and all of her fears to see what she can stir while she's throwing all her problems on the tile of the floor there's not much i can do cause i want to have a whiff of her last breath and i hope that i die too i hit the ceiling to see her throne because she's the queen so very clean of the evil i have sown queen of the bathtub

i'm swinging the clubs in search of true love baby i'm walking through scrubs when i saw you waiting i asked you to join me, and you said "no problem" then i asked you to love me now see what i am starting? after a while, it seems this isn't working i don't have your style and i see you lurking but i won't let you go, cause i think you're pretty and it had to be luck to find you where they didn't need me before i even realized what i did i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting we went on some dates and they were romantic we went to the bridge under night fantastic we held each others hands, and saw the stars in the sky and it must have been luck to see the stars in your eyes before i even realized what i did i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting if it wasn't for bad luck, i wouldn't know luck if i wanted to find you, i should've looked where i lost you before i even realized what i did i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting

i just started feeling sorry for you when you told me all about those dirty things you do you do don't finish before you get started you'll never be able to see your way to another day it's so easy when ignoring the question you're too busy thinking about what you'll say when you retaliate it gets me thinking it's different than when you first walked through the door it gets me wondering who thought you could be trusted before? i'm having trouble seeing your point of view that you (told you believed was true) it sounds so phony are you sure this is what you do? or are you lying to yourself too? well ain't this about a motherfucker you keep saying that you'll stand there waiting for me well can't you see (well can't you see) you're steady studying the wrong equation a simple science that you've mastered indefinitely we'll give you a PHD it gets me thinking it's different than when you first walked through the door it gets me wondering who thought you could be trusted before? you're playing possum and we all know better we're following your act to the letter your eyes are peeking out through your hair strands to try to sucker someone into your quicksand a smile bright enough to catch a blind man cause no one dares to do the things that you can a small collection of loyal minions a wrong number and a faux opinion we're all swimming in the freezing water and honest answer should i even bother? you rub your hands together, they're so sweaty we all assumed that you were just born ready a temporary solution at best another dream is being laid to rest and all your enemies have called a forfeit and so i think that it is time you make it STOP!

the world is coming to an end the wind attacks as the earth bends THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET I READ IT ON THE INTERNET IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE I READ IT ON THE INTERNET they're poisoning your kids they'll take the food from where you live THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET I READ IT ON THE INTERNET IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE I READ IT ON THE INTERNET I READ IT ON THE IN- TER- NET it must be true what will we do? it must be nice to never be questioned by anybody and this fallacy will continue it must be true THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET I READ IT ON THE INTERNET IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE I READ IT ON THE INTERNET

well i hope against hopes that it's not true that you didn't hate me as much as i loved you but i knew it had to happen just one of these days and i would be reminded of your stinging ways so just try on the glove and see if it fits in your pandora's box of your lies and secrets well maybe i'm a fool for going along maybe i'm an idiot for not being strong because i knew you were a liar since the first time i heard it maybe through my ignorance i thought you were worth it and i will probably feel better when time lets it sit on your pandora's box where i will find no regret I'M GIVING UP on entertaining you i'm giving up on your lies enlightened by the world surrounding me and shunning you from the skies so i wonder why i think these thoughts again trailing my mind to it's original sin i can't see the lines between lies and truth through all your ignorant acts of youth your bullshit's making my head spin within the box you've placed me in I'M GIVING UP on entertaining you i'm giving up on your lies enlightened by the world surrounding me and shunning you from the skies

spread your wings all tattered and torn fly away and be reborn be the angel that you wanted to be show the world you were always free let the choir sing feed the illusion what the masses want is just a delusion let them fall in love be everything they need as the truth you speak adds to their confusion for all they know they know you no they don't know anything gravity can't hold you back faith is not something that you lack hold the world in your frail hand let your beauty infect every land they all fear what they don't know they don't know why they want you we all want you let the choir sing feed the illusion what the masses want is just a delusion let them fall in love be everything they need as the truth you speak adds to their confusion for all they know they know you no they don't know anything they all fear what they don't know they don't know why they want you and why would they want you?
