How the mind does shout for rest
When the body's shaken, yeah
Oh this tightness in my chest
Still your leaves I'm raking

Ah, Lord is this a test?
Was it fun creating, yeah?
My God's a little sick
And he wants me crazy

Are you
Who can say
It's ok to live through me?

Live to be
Part of me
You're a wrinkled magazine

Was it something that I said?
Was it how they're breaking, yeah?
I'm so selfish, paying your rent
While your blood I'm taking

Spend me
Like a tree
Dirty dollar bills for leaves
Dark in a sea
Of my seeds
And the tears on which you feed

You feed

The body is a temple
A dormant alter
To where infantile men lie around
Itching and nibbling
For a small piece of sanity
Of which you can not give


Buying pennies with my soul
And a little Heaven spent
While the Hell am I taking

Hide from life
You know they'll remember me

They are abhorred
In self-worth
All that matters much to me, yeah, yeah
