  • A human leech
    Foul, you crawl into my field of vision, an empty speech
    Breaking the skin of concentration
    Jesus Christ, you make me sick
    Bloated and corpulent from disregard
    What you discard
    Your presence is leaving a scar

    Are you ready for the night?
    Put you out like the setting sun
    Four more words and then I'm done
    How the fuck did you think this would end?

    A filthy prick, foul parasitic imposition
    A dirty trick, a seasonal war of attrition
    So thoughtless, you're such a pig
    Bloated and indolent, and you assume what you consume
    It's other's business to reap and remove
    Are you ready for the night?
    Put you out like the setting sun
    Four more words and then I'm done
    A violent need to speak the truth, tired of bone and long of tooth
    Let's be clear, you're not welcome here again
    How the fuck did you think this would end?

    This is where it ends
    The swollen fingers of the modern age
    The human condition in a gross display
    Are covered in the grease of indulgence
    Anemic and weak with intemperance
    Clutching at the latest distraction
    Bleeding a most savage reaction

    Are you ready for the night?
    Put you out like the setting sun
    Four more words and then I'm done (get-the-fuck-out)
    A violent need to speak the truth, tired of bone and long of tooth
    Let's be clear, you're not wanted here, my friend
    How the fuck did you think this would end?

    Oh, how the fuck did you think this would end?

    How the fuck did you think this would end? Writer/s: CHRIS ADLER, DAVID RANDALL BLYTHE, JOHN CAMPBELL, MARK MORTON, WILL ADLER
