lyrics

One quick request; scatter me in the mountains
Tranquil at last; no infernal internal combustion engines

Read a book, honey; wipe that drool off of your chin
I'd tell you to build a synaptic response but I know that you don't know what that is
Read a book, honey; validate my lack of faith
My god wouldn't waste the gift of consciousness on a creature with shit for brains

I've been giving too much of my time away to those that least deserve it
But no more; my time is my own

Vacuous void; beneath the luminous seams of order
Blind humanoid grasping at smoke finds no answers
Like an insect suspended by surface tension his world ends where his feet begin
Until a mighty swell plunges him, gasping for breath into the depths of his oblivious oblivion

Read a book, honey; not that pre-teen paperback trash
The chip on your shoulder's been writing checks that your vocabulary can't cash
Read a book, honey; god damn you're fucking dumb
I'll keep my sentences short and my syntax simple so you don't get overwhelmed

I've been giving too much of my time away to those that least deserve it
But no more; my time is my own

It begins in a silent burst, a cloud of hot light inflated to existence by a high-strung vessel
Crushed by consciousness and carried out to sea, further and further
As the land grows smaller and smaller in an ocean of instances, seas of subconsciousness
Drifting in white-capped thoughts, just searching for a sign
Wholly one and only one hiding in the solar hues
If it exists all we need is a sign
All we need is a sign and it could be anything; anything at all

I've been giving too much of my time away to those that least deserve it
But no more; my time is my own

God, you're fucking boring
Empty head, empty heart
