about

Track 3 of Preclusion I and b-side to Metaphors.

lyrics

SAILOR: Looking at the stars, looking at the czars
I can make it, I can make it if I only hold on
You taught me how to sing, how to act, how to dance
How to fuck, fuck, fuck and drink my head away
“Tonight
Tonight is the beginning of the rest of your life
So grab the bull by the horns and get Made, Paid, Laid
And by the way
We believe in you, we believe in you, we believe in you, we believe in you”
So they buy up a place of unreal estate
In a sector called “Hope” through a conjugate
We join hands and we smile and we celebrate
I can’t shake off the feeling that they’ll desecrate
Commit robbery in the worst degree
Friends turn into enemies
And thrown out down the drain
An abortion of another dream

I know what you’d like
To smoke, drink, fuck every night
The small print on the deal
Said “devotion isn’t real”

So take the money and run

Fueled by mistakes and the sight of Cloud 9
I brought them in, one by one, with a promise divine
Of Art, of Truth, the components that are missing in this fickle falling world
Where only power chords shine
Well, one left for money
One in shame
And countless others who held fast to the Simplicity Game
You, I did nothing but help you out
You, you gave me nothing but the seed to sprout the curse
Of altruism helps nobody in the end except the ones with no remorse
To take advantage of a friend
But they believe in me, they believe in me
Well, belief doesn’t play a guitar for me
Nor does it hit skins or tickle ivory
You fell between the cracks
Built with the void of all you lack
And thrown out down the drain
And abortion of another dream

I know what you’d like
To smoke, drink, fuck every night
The small print on the deal
Said “devotion isn’t real”

I hope you’re fairing well on the other side

And will you step up to me?
And will you step up to me?
And will you step up to me?
I know you won’t
