And Their Eulogies Sang Me To Sleep
All I heard was the sound of fish who'd drowned
All I saw was the inside of my eyelids
All I said fell short of reaching open ears
Words floating, clouding the view
See no, hear no, speak no evil
Leaves you deaf, dumb and blind
Because the bad is all you'll find
A deeply heart-felt goodbye to the part of me that died
When I decided to put others before me
Yes, my heart fell asleep, boredom and fatigue
I always said I wanted to die smiling
To pretend I'm in peace
Now from my corpse beams a frigid, blank grin
And once hopeful eyes are sunken in
Like a lullaby to the cradle is the eulogy to the casket
All my flaws swept under the table
To grieve the porcelain doll that was me
Their solemn songs sang me to sleep as my body escaped me
Such a shameful masquerade!
Fleeting, frozen minutes on display
Why is evolution such a shameful thing to say?
Can you feel your bodily decay?
Because I can sure as hell feel my brain going blank
If my body betrays me, there's pollution to thank
This condition infects my cells like it controls my mind
Internal army, defend me behind enemy lines!
Fragile vehicle of mine! Don't abandon me yet!
There is so much to live for that we so easily forget
Fascination with the fear? The concept escapes me
All encompassing fate?
How it wrenches our hearts, torments our souls
And sings us all to sleep to an eternal keep
No matter what beliefs, it sweetly sings us all?
