about

In memory of Tom Searle.

lyrics

I am young, I am blind, I got left behind
Rhetoric by name, archaic in design
I adhere to no one no thing no God
Try all you want to make me what you want
Moulded scolded shaped into a golden
Idol of a false prophet sent to keep you all in line
You stripped me to my bones, you give me back what's mine

Take me for granted, take me for one of them,
Pull me out and smile at me, then drown me once again,
I'm only human, I'm only man
Push me forward and nail me down, and call me out and cut me down

So sift through the sawdust and pick me apart
Fuck me up and shut me up, don't let me stand don't lift me up
Set alight my beating heart, should've known you were rogue right from the start

I'm a pathetic apathetic parenthetic individual
Dragged down by those who dwell in the digital
Revolutionising the norm, walking blind into a storm
My heart broke a long long time ago, I'm disillusioned by the status quo
Blank eyes obscenities, in a forest of burning trees

Heartbroken, naive
Was it you to strike first or was it me?
Take off your mask, tell me the truth
I wanna hear it from you
