  • don't move, stay right where you are
    talking can only give you away
    and there's so nothing to say
    the voices say hello
    imprisoned, they're invisible
    but we look a lot alike
    this is boring, all we talk about is you
    come on give me a reason

    a boy and his machine gun
    when you're finished struggling
    are you free tonight?
    did they stick you in here
    cause you weren't working right?

    don't move stay just like you are
    you look sane motionless like that
    so very flat
    it's amazing what velocity can do
    when human beings are in season

    a boy and his machine gun
    if you're quiet we might see some
    when you're finished struggling
    are you free tonight?
    did they stick you in here cause you weren't working right?
    there's a TV in every room
    and it's free even pay-per-view
    which you'll need if no one's going to visit you
    Animal

    i know who you're waiting for
    no one's coming though
    so fuck you and your principles
    and fuck whatever made me
    perhaps you think i'm evil
    what does it matter if we're crazy
