lyrics

I sit here and peel all the skin off my arm
To remind myself that I'm awake
Surrounded by automatons
Programmed to work until they break
The puppet strings tighten like a tourniquet
Cut off the bloodflow above the neck
Bodies limp, yet animate
With the flicker of dying sentience

The weight of eons lies ahead
The blinders on, the eyes are dead
A neuron cluster seethes beneath
Machine code complexity
1's and 0's in sets of 2
Quadrupeds enclosed in cubes
Broken thoughts hang pallid palls
Off perspective tricks in sterile halls

I sit there and watch the blood drip from his arm
And convince myself all this is fake
I see all in this astral form
And it's more than I can take

Fat cats trade slaughterhouse high-fives
While the cattle willingly waste their lives
Ghosts in the code with machine gun minds
Skitter in shadow, subsisting on grime
Sallow faces peer through bars
Feces fly from atrophied arms
I don my mask and play the game
Til entropy wins or I slip away
