lyrics

Worm's Eye View

When I look more carefully,
seems I've bitten off more than I can chew.
Life's empty charm falls away,
we're all confined to worms eye view.

Barely looking up,
Oblivious to the birds above
caged in your routine
A hell you pretend to love

work, sleep ad-infinitum
we're running in a wheel
no way to opt-out
I got the raw end of this deal

burdened with expectation
A million lives all the same
our passions extinguished
like damp fingers to a flame

A life filled with empty space
All the dreams you crave
drip through your fingers
Killing time to the grave.

Stuck on the bottom rung
of a sterile society
Destined to rack up the numbers
of worthless currency

am I really only,
what you can get out of me?
Agony aunt, a money supply,
a lover, an employee?

Beneath this thicket of flowery language
An ugly truth takes form
Empty words pass the blame
So unaware of the oncoming storm

Slowing killing the planet,
with every breath we take
doing nothing to change it
with every day we wake

When I look more carefully
Seems I've bitten off more than I can chew.
Life's empty charm falls away,
we're all confined to worms eye view.

Barely looking up
oblivious to the birds above
caged in your routine
A hell you pretend to love.
