lyrics

Bad thoughts on a blacktop
Kids, written word with the white chalk
That message that you left, I read it, no response
I don't want to talk

Dead city with the dim lights
Cool, red ink for the re-write
Forget yourself, don't call for help
I got the white eyes with the black fur

Monkier, we'll reoccur
This time it's a blur
Worthless purpose
Don't worship the thought of what you were

When you're stuck inbetween
The birth and the death of all things
Better burn your soul for blind control
Bring back the monkey king

I've been away too long without a song
To prolong the feeling that everybody's wrong

I need that restart
A little shock for my still heart
Government with drop a bomb when I depart
Build a city with my dead art

Better get smart if you want to stay alive
Do you want to die
Do you want to fly

Signal the youth and sound the alarm
And show me my proof and sing the war song
Cause no one lives long and no one lives here
No life inside fear
No love if you're near

So why's it so far
My limbs of rebar
My fur is on fire
No day for my doubt
Just show me the way out

---------------

Cameras on the catwalk
Kids, little ears for your big talk
Hear everything, encrypt your screen, decoder ring
Senses that you unlock

Psychics in the hallway
Pills, medicine for the bad days
Kinetic thought, just take the shot
Waste a warp drive in the archive

History, a little .exe
Ghost in that machine
Surge the circuits
The surface of seven unforseen

Seven highs they may rise
See the ESPER, the you realize
That the city's about to explode
See that signal in the sky

I wake up to the sound of sirens
Seeing the flooding
They're running back into each others arms
Everybody stop

That's war
You've got a lot but you still need more
I'd take it back, but it's got no core
You can feel the void in my voice when you feel victorious
You need more of this, hard drive storage

Just help me find the way outside
Make the path wide
The day that you died
Last time you sighed
Streets will collide
Day she relapsed
Why did you ask

Just had to know
Just had this hope
That she'd read your mind
Can I hear inside
Can I say it loud
Can I say aloud

Tell me where you want me to go
