The Valium Whip EP

Undiscovered pleasures Undivided by the pain These petty things That infect us... Too complicated Just punching it through To concentrate on, & exonerate you Got a blue mind now Got a head for war You seemed so divine now You know the score We re-create Too many mirrors built to crack Too many warehouses made of stone To all join hands, of skins & hearts & sing the same song Some dispute over product Some dispute over sale The means to an end Mean this vanitys stale You're wearing this faith Like a bulletproof vest I can slice through the armour... We Re-create Dance in my direction Take the fall Bask in my reflection Take it all...away Like lemmings The tragic & the stained converge So wan & pale This carbon copy of... This silence isn't wrong No reason to pretend This silence isn't wrong... We Re-create Dance in my direction Take the fall Bask in my reflection Take it all We Re-create This silence isn't wrong No reason to pretend...

this enchantment Lost in the funhouse again immobilised with my fingers in your head to touch the vein just once without the need to replace something primal fed upon by the virus of faith gridlocked by the storm again she was only 17 salvation's just a cut away pull the trigger now... welcome to the underneath nothing viral drowning in the image of you lie in the arms these fables of blood & nicotine begin this souless sacrifice a wire machine that's built to fail rains down like disease rains down like hail down so long scars fall away welcome in... welcome to the underneath

These days of suffering & regret I know, you're insular in the extreme When 20/20 hindsight fails I know, you're insular in the extreme You play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again & I'm thrown away... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection To strike this ego-centric pose These days of suffering & regret It's a sin, I'm a fake, you knoe I'm a liar These days of suffering & regret You play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again & I'm thrown away... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) (I'm sorry now, that you come off as vain & stale) (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) I'm sorry now... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection I know you search for something else I know that this is not the end... (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) (that you are not as whole) (that you are not as whole...)

Embrace the nothingness Call this exhaustion You are the brightest star So why do you lie? It's not so elemental No force of nature now I'll feed you gravity So you won't float away... Another Razorblade Another Heartworm You know the truth will out So why do you lie? It's not too relevant You're not so instrumental Your new mistake leaves scars like nothing else You're not the only one...

You are the god You are the everything You are the be all & the end all After this Another headtrip All this is evident We're not just playing now, this is serious fun I am blessed by fate to be scorned I am damned with faint praise Validate me, see if you can try Denigrate me, see if you can try Regenerate me, see if you can try It's not that hard now... I am blessed by fate to be scorned I am damned with faint praise Sing along Strung along It's an anthem for the dispossessed Sing along Strung along An issue that needs to be redressed I am blessed by fate to be scorned I am doomed by faint praise...
