Simulation Lyrics

7. Simulation (5:31)
Track rating :  91.7 / 100      Votes :  3     
It seems I should have walked away
Reverse the wager I've no means to pay
Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight
And blue pills coat with such disdain
I've worn the shades for so long
That I've forgotten how to see
The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings

I know this may be hard for you to believe, and all
But you only exist because we allow it

I've questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled?
Total understanding don't seem to mean a thing
When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can't you hear me scream?

By the way of cosmic rays
A subtle breakdown jarred the code display
A simulation as I can tell, our cell
Playing out a hopeless scene
We stand to lose all our charm
And faith just seems to wane
A billion years can seem a stunningly short time

You've been beaten down time and time again...
But still, you find yourself at the center of it all

I've questioned all the voices in my head
Are they mine or have I been misled?
Total understanding don't seem to mean a thing
When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine
Can't you hear me scream?

You hear me?
You had one thing to do - one thing!
And you fucked it up, you piece of shit

Nurse, patient 666158 needs to be sedated.
We need 500 CCs of Blue Comfort.

Oh, hello there, dearie.
I've been expecting you.

Posturing the way I feel
Is truth only what we believe is real?
Marvel the sketches that paint the night, starlight
And take a breath before it's all erased away
