lyrics

i am an animal two-headed mandibles
ham-handed accents on two-bar mechanical
canticles tangible evidence not understandable
it's mathematical maybe
collapsible lately dialectic debate me
a discourse in hating all the instincts prefacing
every action i'm taking lately so that i can come
misunderstanding the animal's a shaking
shadow of a man who thought he was infallible
thought he wasn't human cuz he hated how it sounded
but a beast is what’s left when they strip the human out of you
(a beast is what’s left when they strip the human out of you)
and that’s the parable apparently a lesson
it’s not repairable transparent obsolescence
that ineffable errant lack of questions
aggressive inescapable unstable position

this can’t be all that i am capable of

i love the monster he’s the only part of me that is consistent
as sure as i will breathe there’ll be the anger and the greed

i’ve got a mantra out floating around in my head
an example of things I wish I hadn’t said
eat sleep fuck over friends
well that’s the gist or at least as close as i can get
see people think that i am always so helpful
respectful don’t blink it’ll be gone with a rug pull
just instinct i’m so regretful
now that i’m awake to the hurt i made you feel
with my actions irrational and lacking any decency
dissatisfaction with frequent complacency
a broken mirror whose refraction is the least of my worries
I am a hurried old man
my feet sit on the brink of a great ocean
each emotion gathering locomotive energy
simplicity in each effort each word a new color
each sound a new brushstroke each song a new lover

i love the monster he’s the only part of me that is consistent
as sure as i will breathe there’ll be the anger and the greed

i love the monster he’s the only part of me that feels it’s worth it
just to breathe each day as useless as the last i’m done forgiving
