lyrics

There's this code, there's this formula that I've devised
that essentially chooses who lives and who dies
but I've finally realized that's not my choice to decide.

Though it's taken extremes to show me my mistakes
I've witnessed first hand what my karma creates:
a ravenous fish with a cannibalistic taste.

First I tried to resist now I'm just pushing on.
Shackles bound to my wrist set to blow should I run.
The only family I know is being threatened
but the promise to see them gets me to the end.

I've collected my colleagues and cut them in half.
Never mind all their terminal, criminal pasts.
All these flashbacks perhaps it's exactly what I asked.

Times almost up I've acquired the keys.
I've beaten the game and now I am free
but there's one more choice and it's not up to me.

Please, I've been through so much.
I've seen the errors of my ways.
I know I've done wrong. Don't you see I can change.
Let me go and I swear I won't kill anybody, won't kill anybody,
I'll never do it again.

So now I'm melting like an egg in vinegar.
That's what I get for playing god.
What are the chances that I'd even be standing here?
You predetermined all the odds.

As I disintegrate a thought occurs to me,
I'm not as sturdy as a chain.
I'm spitting blood as we eye contact
and then I spiral down the drain.

A lesson learned, I guess
a moral must be somewhere.
The dead will have the final say.
I regret ever having come up with this stupid code
which led me to my last mistake.

I've always been terrible at writing biographies so why stop now. We're probably a band from Michigan. We don't adhere to a specific genre which causes mild schizophrenia in certain individuals. We will write commercial jingles for the right price and we do NOT play at weddings, only funerals. ... more
