Sensors are stationed,
one hardwired board has been left down.
The wearing, the radar, the railing...
it's given up what once you denied.
I won't hold to take in another land
the same old crap I'd call a situation.
The same old crap I'd call...
Got a scar but no breaking nor shaking.
To the higher rows our plans seemed wrong, outrageous.
The crusher, the coven, the devious and low vibes...
The war drones were vagrant.
In broad terms a creature has been left to die.
And apart of this, we'd call on them:
they went all the way down for weal or woe.
Goddam, you're a liar.
A liar can't persist here.
Heal and come back home.

I'm the wold, I'm cinders spilt, the hive...
I'm a whole bunch of alien surprises.
Fear no lash of rawhide.
Heal and attrition will fall.
Heavy eye lids that hold on this far bend down no more.
So foil 'em up, take 'em on upright to the boat.
Take 'em on upright, take to the boat.
Foil the serums up, take 'em on upright to the boat.
Same serums defuse the vilest thought.
Depend on it: as the coven will let it go by
and sure they will as it always has been,
you'll get away and, don't know how to tell,
here will be where no more shame will run high.

Cos I've been beaten, yeah I,
over five hundred times by you.
I'm the wold, I'm cinders spilt...
Ain't your fault: your fault is some bent
to prey on your own grievous harm.
Heal and attrition will fall.

The Coriolis effect just makes me number.
Don't you rob up here some solitude?
The golden mean is dire.
Didn't you take any offence?
It's that demure groan, that damn strange smile
like a virgin, like a butterfly.
