Triumph Of Disintegration

Album: Lousy with Sylvianbriar (2013)

  • The last ten days have been a motherfucker,
    I didn't know if I'd survive

    The voice with the synapse that calls blood bats
    Into action has now entered the tablelands
    It's only natural to feel a little imbalanced,
    It's a symptom of your hysterical need to be understood

    You had to forgive your enemy cause it was making you psychotic
    To keep fighting him inside of your head
    But how could you allow these people whom you don't even respect
    To rape your self concept and make your inner world an ugliness?

    Thrashed through the forest like a tormented brute,
    I had to make myself a monster just to feel something ugly enough to be true
    And then scratching wildly at the mirror in my heart to see their doleful faces
    What is the flaw in just running away?
    Running away fixes everything, how can I why should I stay?
    Just to view the triumph of disintegration?

    To live beneath language, or far above, it's really not that different
    At least now that the one thing that is good about me
    Has begun to express itself in malicious ways

    Thrashed through the forest like a tormented brute,
    I had to make myself a monster just to feel something ugly enough to be true
    And then scratching wildly at the mirror in my heart to see their doleful faces
    What is the flaw in just running away?
    Running away fixes everything, how can I why should I stay?
    Just to see the triumph of disintegration?
    Victories of devastation? Writer/s: Kevin Barnes
