lyrics

i am sitting in the desert of the real (hold it down)
just the simulacrumb left nothing to feel (hold it down)
i am sitting on the map of the world (hold it down)
i am sifting through the ashes of my meal (hold it down)
it is beating but it is cold and rotten
it is self-defeating hoping to soon be forgotten
it is lonely but i’m hungry and i’m running out of options
desperate last pleadings are adopted unwittingly
drifting all alone I am naked and bestial
there is a man standing over me his face cut with deep creases
criticizing my last meal he says is it any good
i said it’s bitter

but I like it
because it is bitter
but i like it
because it is mine

IT IS MY HEART how do you know that your life’s unhealthy
IT IS MY HEART how do you know you’re not helping
IT IS MY HEART try to defy the living constructs
but home is not an object it’s a concept you developed
it is my heart that is disconnected beating in simulation
i have emulated lessons but my core is still complacent
i am reading into situations with certainty that pain brings
leaving me to escape to the place where objects shape reality
there is no known finality there’s nowhere where left to lie
my only hope has been denial so there is nothing left to try
it is over the last funeral has arrived
it’s a sign no it’s a symbol it’s a semiotic bitterness

but I like it
because it is bitter
but i like it
because it is mine

but i like it
because it is my heart
