    Fake knife, real ketchup
    Cardboard, cutthroats
    Cowboys of information

    Pleasure-dot-loathing-dot-Huey-dot-Newton
    It was a lonely, lonely winter

    Fuck-less, pawn sharks
    Toothless but got a big bark
    Live children, blind psychics
    Turned online assassins

    So Hale-Bopp, Hail Mary
    Hail Hagia Sophia
    Oh, it was a lonely, lonely winter

    Entombed in the shrine
    Of zeros and ones, you know
    You know
    Oh, we fatherless features, you motherless creatures
    You know

    Oh, perpetual lying, always terribly frightening, you know
    You know
    Oh, you got the pop in the hiss
    In the city of misfits, you know

    Safe, safe, and safest
    Faith for the faithless
    Oh, dim, dim and dimmer
    Sucker for sinners

    I'm entombed in the shrine
    Of zeros and ones, you know
    You know
    Oh, we fatherless features, you motherless creatures
    You know

    Oh, perpetual lying, always terribly frightening, you know
    You know
    You got the pop in the hiss
    In the city of misfits

    Oh, safe, safe, and safest
    Faith for the faithlessWriter/s: ANNE ERIN CLARK
