what should you say
what should you do
when it all comes down to you
factor in
the countless sins
the "I wants" and "I'm coveting"
All my friends,
I'm your thief
Stilling your phrases as I please
but, it's not so bad to be the robbed as it is to do the job
trust me
unlike these visionaries and all of their visions that they see
I'm not visible until I get six or seven inside me

like this bottle thats so empty
like the conversations in this room
and if it's so plain to see
how come no one leaves
procrastinating but I'm doomed to your death
these ties form a noose around our necks
cutting off circulation to what seems to be our so called friends
useless in the end

I've been lazily dying
I do not dare say Ive been trying
and if this picture screamed a thousand words
I guess a thousand words have gone unheard

I've been lost
in this rhyme
that is taking all my time
and there's a carpet pattern stuck behind these bright blue eyes
if I ever asked what's missing
I am sure you'd come a guessin'
I'm known to lack some sort of ambition
a drunken voice says to me
"this thing feels empty"
well, I tried to be everything you'd need
a soothing melody
a sticking summer breeze
my soothing melody,
please don't let me become a fading memory
