Delirium Trigger

Album: Delirium Trigger (2000)
  • We're now up here alone.
    Terror on the intercom. Can someone save us?
    Systems malfunction. Blast it, this damn machine, over and out captain.

    Something lurks, creeps, on the counter top somewhere behind you.
    Parasitic cyst, I can't stand to watch. It's coming up and out of your chest.
    Remember when we were young? Sit up right on the table.
    A photograph of earth feeding me a way back. Frightened,

    I tear alone, or maybe not the only one there. Hello...hello. When it rings, will you answer?
    There, corner. Tall, short stance.

    It's you, come on kill me!
    You made a good friend to me
    But while you were out numbered and torn they made us do things.

    Dear god, I don't feel alive.
    When you're cut short of misery will you pray it be the end?
    Give a look of surprise. Wide eyed to me. Then you'll know just what I am.

    The scare that triggers your fear.
    Come know me in a different light.
    Come know me as god.

    Run sand hourglass in my time,
    Will I be worth? Spin round carousal when your horse isn't screwed in.

    Dear god, I don't feel alive when your cut short of misery.
    (Raise forth, lost cause) Will you pray it be the end?

    Give a look surprise wide eyed to me. (Raise forth lost cause)
    Then you'll know just what I am. (Subtle demise. The legitimate cry)
    The scare that triggers your fear. Come know me in a different light.

    Come know me as God. (Raise forth lost cause) Writer/s: CLAUDIO SANCHEZ, TRAVIS STEVER, MICHAEL TODD, JOSHUA EPPARD
