lyrics

places everyone, places everyone
it's been a long time coming on
they're at the edges of their seats
and this playwright needs an entourage

draw the curtains
cast the lights
wrap their heads
around a beautiful life

a stage set for a one-way street
roots spread over basalt hearts
the chromosomes are aligned
and the spindles are tearing us apart

we must divide
we must create
we mush leave behind nothing
but a script for our descendants to imitate

we have never been closer to the ground
collapse will pick up speed
like a murder of crows swooping low
talons outstretched, tongues wet
an agony put off another day
A vicious cycle immortalized
by the lack of a better plan

black, nothing but swarming black
where will you go when the spotlights dim out?
pull, nothing but push and pull
you'll burn out long before you make a difference

dance
make a scene
the show must go on
to please a dying breed
dance
pull the strings
dance
tangle the wires into lemniscates
