lyrics

Animal

This box was made for trinkets, not for people
Lift up the lid, this tented roof, and take a look
I'm a lab rat in a maze made from bad days
Collected dust, drafts and unread books

This is the church and this is the steeple
The bell's been silent all day long
They stole the money out of the collection box
And the holy water from the baptismal font

There've been talks about locking the front gate
There've been talks about killing the choir
We'll go to great lengths to protect what's ours
And if absolutely necessary we'll set it on fire

I can invite you in if you're a spirit
I can invite you in if you're hellbent
But all the furniture and floor is thick hot lava now
And flames are nourishment

My compass has been tampered with
It got hot and it melted and it runs down the pulpit's side
Now i dive deep into the bathtub of my frontal lobe
Looking for a ride

I promised you a pretty poison garden
In a dream much too earnest for the confessional
I’ll come up with better lies for the blackmailer's entertainment
Noone knows better how the truth is ever so flexible.

Where are we going, animal?
We're going nowhere, we are nowhere
We are nothing this is now
Where are we going, animal
We're going nowhere, we are nowhere
This is nothing this is how
