lyrics

We were born to die runnin
Journeymen adrenaline junkies
We know the smoke will catch us stumbled
What a wonder for honeybees
We fought with knowledge of the cost of the sting
Buzz of velocity
Songs of those been lost for the queen
Living fossils starving to speak
Unconsciously breathing
Til the pollen that we sifted’s
Blown
gone from the heathens
But these honeycomb homes will last beyond what we see
Then we will leave our wax and plastic
In the streets
Processed;
Caught in a sleep
Turn to the freeze
Burning for seeds
The sum is even
Growing past a saccarhine need
Indeed I’m attracted to weakness, wait
Or maybe just the strength it takes to show it
We all hide in our hive minds
I’d die to be open
Overexposed photo finishes
Living commotion
Wings and our press clippings kept
For these drifting devotions, look
They say you need to shine
With incandescence
But I’m comfortable with grime
And I will shine with imperfections

This is for those who wear their switchblades plain in their stab wounds
Who play in the shadows
For them who know their scars makes em human
Unmarred skin is illusion

They will know us from the tracks we leave in the ash of our days
Pyroclastic remains
We collapse our restraints
Hold no attraction to safety
Our lungs filled with fire and clay
To live and die in pompeii
We will shine in our graves
Riot away

The road to perdition is written in calm
Swift to embalm
Second wind of the gone
Singing soft
We don’t need no photoshops
They want Nirvana in a heart shaped box
But these devils wear prada
So our gods are the lost
Our scriptures in the witnessing of
Hymnals and songs, right?
Bearing our crosses
So aware of our faults
Unembarrassed to fall
We share the scars on our hearts
Not the type to wait for jumper cables
Carry our sparks
So we set flames to the midnight oil
Words coiled and raw
Striking matches over our urban sprawl
In the dark
In our roots we always saw
That all thoughts fall apart
We return to the soil
That we fought at the start
So the days start to blur and one day we’ll be gone
So I’m not worried ‘bout living it wrong
I’m gripping it strong
Living simple as my word is my bond
I will go but my work will live on

They will know us from the tracks we leave in the ash of our days
Pyroclastic remains
We collapse our restraints
Hold no attraction to safety
Our lungs filled with fire and clay
To live and die in pompeii
We will shine in our graves
Riot away
