lyrics

Solipsism
So serpentine
I think it might be time to simplify
If it's too heavy
Take off a load
The rush comes once you've given up control

I'm not as averse
To “worse before it's better” outcomes
As about them
I'm not out of touch
I just don't come around as much

Double vision
A single scrawl
An infinite array of cannonballs
And I'm exploding
Burst bombs and bones
I can't decide if I'd rather erode

I'm not as averse
To “worse before it's better” outcomes
As about them
I'm not out of touch
I just don't come around as much

I've got my rituals
Capsules and chewables
But I still don't take my vitamins
But I’ve lied to every doctor who has ever asked
Because I know everything about death
So a couple throbbing teeth
Don’t worry me in the least
See, I’m perfectly at peace
Happily hedging bets
I’m good for now
I’m nothing – yet

It’s not that I don’t toe the line
It’s just that neither of the sides
Are catching my eye
I'm not out of touch
I just don't come around

My prided prism
My prison clothes
Stars on slides slipped under microscopes
My brash decisions
My beating heart
The end necessitates another start
