Spraying a little breeze, half past seven:
I've just found a bomb in a park.
Comes a dumb, scabby black-eyed raven
and stares at the hole in my heart.
No one's ever done it since they all did head to Mars.
Drifters are away, memories are here to stay:
it's certainly a lot to maintain.

Not you, not me rose to the bait,
no one could bear that weight:
it's definitely a lot to maintain.

Vanishing behind the wreckage of a chain gun,
a harder rain has fallen as well.
No use for more than meets the eye.

Boredom and redundancy killed this planet,
I swear I knew it all from the start.
No one ever got it till the indium plants fell apart.
Then the preachers had lost their way,
now there is not much left to say:
it's a fucking lot to maintain.

It's a fucking lot to maintain all the shit we were talking,
freed of bad dreams by that drug they were stocking.
No use for more than meets the eye.

No use for more reasons behind what happens.
No use for more thrill than survive the day.
No use, my friend, shadows never end:
never said they could have met the eye.

Not you, not me rose to the bait,
no one could bear that weight.
Then you, not me, got through the gate,
no one did care to wait.

No one gave a fuck to step back from the shit y'all got killed for,
no use to wonder why there's nothing left more
to you, my friend, than meets the eye.

See how I'll go beyond the pale
and leave a tear behind.
Behind a tear I see a fractured light.
Beyond the pale
I'll find a place where I can stay,
a place that stays the same.
See how I'll go beyond the pale.
