lyrics

I dream of dirt-caked hands
Battle scars and knives
Fingernails that won't grow passed the bone
And glossy dead gray eyes

When I wake it's just a bottle
Sitting on a barren night stand
And this headache's not so subtle
It's very unforgiving
And I see my father's genes
Stumbling around inside my jeans
Why didn't I get his heart
I only got his disease

I wish I had a fucking heart
I'd kill for a fucking heart

I've grown up in steadily shrinking family
Who follow frantically to the farm to die

My back aches
My hands shake
Other man's hands that have bled for decades
Who've started to decay
Since the day
They earned their Christian names
They're all the same
Saying "shame on me"
Sobbing in their alcoholic dreams
Worry wort we all die
We all have pain
We all have homes
We all know someone
Who lives under a tombstone
Did they grow?
I don't know I don't go to school
I observe.

I serve servants serving serfs surfing on our sacrifice
That suffices all prior requirements to survive.
