And this is how the world died
And this is how the world died

...i can hear you judging me.

[I'll hear your confession]
I FOUND THE BEST PIECE OF ME

[kneel down]
ALONE, SHIVERING IN THE DARK

[place your face between my thighs]
3 CENTIMETERS TALL

[& talk to God...]
EATING IT'S HEART
.. but you will not feast on me today.

This is how the world died.

WHO WILL SLAY THIS THING?
[i forgive you]

WHO WILL PLAY THE BUTCHER & END MY SUFFERING?
[i forgive you]

... I fucked the minds of the masses with the fingers of liberty.
THIS IS NOT A THREAT. [this is not a threat]

I'm not perfect, I'm not a beauty queen, I'm just me.
[no one escapes this life alive]

WE ARE ALL,
PRISONERS HERE.

[all shapes & sizes]

... I scream for all the women I've never been but I hoped I would be.
[i'm proud of who I am]

FOREVER, CHASING THE SUN.
[i'm proud of me]

... she bites her trembling mind.

IT BEGAN AS ALL TRAGEDIES DO,
[forgive me, she's the one, forgive me]

WITH PAIN & DECEPTION.

... if you'll be the paper, I'll be the pen.
AND THIS IS IT .. [i've tasted hell, & it tastes just like you]
MY FINAL PLEA.

NO ONE IS COMING TO SAVE ME.
NO ONE IS GOING TO CHANGE THINGS.

THE ANSWERS WILL NOT DROP FROM THE SKY.
I WILL NOT ONEDAY WAKE WITH A DIFFERENT DISGUISE.

THE ONLY SOLUTION ... IS REVOLUTION.

[art is war ... fight, fight]
[[pain makes me safe]]

.. the odds were always against me.
[lose weight/clearly think]

I EXIST.
I AM BROKEN.

I EXIST.
I AM BROKEN.

.. if god is my father then I am an orphan.
I AM BROKEN.

I'M NOT A MISTAKE
[my ancestry is a ghost story]

I'M A PROPHECY
[my love life is a crime scene]

I'M AN OMEN
[my self-esteem is a string of unsolved murders]

THE RADIO IS BRAINWASHING ME,
FILLING MY HEAD WITH THESE SELF-CONSPIRACIES.

.. I am an emotional nightmare ..

I CAN'T HIDE THE PAIN INSIDE
[builder of my own mythology]

JUST TELL ME ... YOU'RE LISTENING.
