lyrics

None of this went down by the book so get up and do the rest.
Find a solution.
Our corrosive condition is getting worse and we ain’t too proud.
So come on down.
Give us that miracle now.

Hive minded,
Nothing but greedy and murderous thieves, all of us.
I’m sick of it.
I’m thinking of burning this planet and starting anew. (Light it up, light it up)
Light us up another grit so we can burn down this bitch.

Misplaced inside a new milieu.
From broken homes to broken bones.
We covered up the tracks we left because culture ain’t as kind as you.

Hangman, your throat is worthy of the words we speak.
(From broken homes to broken bones, we covered up the tracks we left)
Hangman, your throat is worthy of the words we speak.
(The way you are, the way I am, we speak in tongues but always understand)


Now we're standing on our graves,
Wondering how we got this far by
The error of our ways
But your cataract eyes won't let you see you're begging to a God that you don't believe
It didn't take long for me to realize that none of this went down by the book

(So our horns will hold up our halos,
horns will hold up our..)

Halos made of rust and sand,
I found us a way back but we can't be moving this slow
Misplaced in a place I don't know
Lost my grip but I'll be fine


All of this went down by the book because we got up and did the rest.
Now our horns will hold up our halos.

No.
I'm not your god.
I ain’t his devil.
I’m not the fiends you think go “bump” in the night.
I’m not precious.
I’m not perfect.
I’m not sure I’m even supposed to be on this planet.
But I’ve been here for so long, and I’m sick of all these songs.
I’m sorry I let you down.
I’m not what you thought I'd become.

Takers Leavers

Some kats, who met in a wormhole while traveling through space-time, decided it would be nice to take a break from the complexity of life and live in the simplicity of music.
