lyrics

bare-assed snot-nosed unwell in a third floor sauna/roach motel the room spins a centrifuge in hell devolved into a single prison cell I was a leech on your back I was the fly buzzing around your bed if I was feeding my true self wasn't I better off dead? there was no light to burn me the spider hung himself in his web thorax jackknifed ass wrapped his neck for the the full hour I sat there listening on the floor and what we wanted was running away and he's listening face to the warden he breathes dishonesty and I promise to figure out how to do him in I'll grow one day and carve away the shell that kept me curled up like a dog at the foot of my own insecurity back and forth with what you want is it life's rewards or left to rot? you go up and down can you decide between underground or in the light? a glowing finger had rose and found its way down my throat it had choked out the voice that said "die or get off the rope!" you can't throw a fit you can't curse when you can't get hard if you're trying to drown you're gonna have to drop your guard
