lyrics

Bootstrap kings chant slogans,
as hopeful as meaningless.
Resurrect the American Dream,
the Island Self of naive success.

And every song tells me to look for
’What`s Inside’
But there’s nothing there,
I’ve died so much to stay alive.
Emptiness and Apathy
sound better than vulnerability
to a world that wants me dead,
I reject your platitudes instead.

Self help gurus with microphones
try to sell their PMA.
You don’t know my mind,
or the days I’ve stepped so close to graves.

And sometimes I want it to be true,
believe that I could start anew,
but that’s not what it`s like for people like me.
And self delusion will not set you free.

And every song tells me to look for
’What`s Inside’
But there’s nothing there,
I`ve died so much to stay alive.
Pessimism doesn’t mean I’ve failed,
it`s defense against a world derailed.
Your words don’t resonate,
I`ve lost the ability to relate.

Packed empty rooms, desires entombed.
I think I’d kill for something more.
With silent days, a turn of phrase.
I think I’ve lost what I am fighting for.

We raise our eyes but cannot see.
There is so little left of me,
There is so little left of me.

I don’t believe
in Happiness.
I just believe
in Emptiness.
