Album: ...Like Clockwork (2013)
  • I never lie
    To myself

    Rose, tinted eyes
    Color my sorrow
    A shade of 'why?

    Bye bye black balloon
    See you real soon
    Wave bye bye
    Bye bye

    Why were you so sad
    What have they done?
    Forget those mindless baboons
    They're off playing God

    Copy cats in cheap suits
    All playing it safe
    While cannibals with their noose
    Consume a parade

    Is it wonderful?

    Kalopsia, kalopsia, kalopsia
    Kalopsia, kalopsia

    Far, far from shore
    The land of nightmares
    Gone forever more

    And I love you more
    Than I can control
    I don't even try
    Why would I?

    Oh why the long face?
    You've got it all wrong
    Forget the rat in the race
    We'll choke chain them all

    Fates favor the ones
    Who help themselves
    The rest feel the sting of the lash
    As they run, as they row the boat
    To hell Writer/s: Dean Anthony Fertita, Josh Homme, Joshua Michael Homme, Michael Jay Shuman, Troy Dean Van Leeuwen
