The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level       Last modified by level Besi Karat
1. Hollow (5:41)
Turning in circles, slowing down
Pulling against a closing out
Easy to feed off a weaker thing
Harder to say what I really mean

Hollow as a mountain all tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain crowned with a cold, blue sky

All of your colors turn to grey
Don’t even matter anyway
Bleeding impressions where you were tied
Can’t really say how you lost your mind

Hollow as a mountain all tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain crowned with a cold
Hollow as a mountain all tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain crowned with a cold, blue sky

Silence so loud, silence
I can’t tell my up from down
Silence so loud, Silence
I can’t tell my uṗ from down

All of the faces life can show
Withered and ugly the one you know

Hollow as a mountain all tunneled and drilled below
Hollow as a mountain crowned with a cold, blue sky

Silence so loud, silence
I can’t tell my up from down
Silence so loud, Silence
I can’t tell my up from down
2. Pretty Done (4:35)
So you got the thing you wanted
Don't let it go
though it hurts your hand to hold it
Don't let it show

I'm pretty done
Once a favored son
I'm pretty done
Slap me 'round for fun

Finding no pleasant changes
In old enemies
Not a lead a bit part playing
In my story

I'm pretty done
Once a favored son
I'm pretty done
Slap me 'round for fun

I don't care to further amuse you
Never had you how, could I lose you?
Paid in full, I owe no one at all

I'm supposed to smile and ignore it
Better than some
High roads are to fall from
Already hung

I'm pretty done
Once a favored son
I'm pretty done
Slap me 'round for fun

Pushing towards hopeless mission
Curiosity, omission
History colored since the fall

I'm pretty done
I'm pretty done
I'm pretty done
I'm pretty done
3. Stone (4:22)
I know you think I'm wrong, but I'm not your tour guide
Haven't guessed it, don't let them look inside


Cold
Dry
Stone


What makes you want to carve your initials in me?
Rain and weather erasing hard to read
Find me distant, our world erupt obscene


Cold
Dry
Stone


Cold and dry Stone
Cold and dry Stone


I'm not a cornerstone in a palace for you
Time will bring you, hear it, hold on truth
Not to worry, ice covered rocks still move


Cold
Dry
Stone


Cold
Dry
Stone
4. Voices (5:42)
Who am I?
Is this me?
Am I wrong?
Or thirteen?

I've gone cold
Hard to deal
Used to stand
Where I kneel

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Cause you'll see what mine says

I want more
Than I need
I don't know
What is real

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Cause you'll see what mine says

Every time I listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Cause you'll see what mine says

Whispering their names
Faces, uniforms I've worn
Now that it's gone
Always climbing
To fall down again
Holding on to everything
It's not what it seems

I've been told
Dreaming's free
Think I'll go
Back to sleep

Everybody listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Cause you'll see what mine says

Every time I listen
Voices in my head
Everybody listen
Cause you'll see what mine says

Calling out their names
Faces, uniforms I've worn
Now that it's gone
Always climbing
To fall down again
Holding on to everything
It's not what it seems
5. The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (6:38)
Come to me I'll fill the hole
Why would I be Lying
End fan, all planned out
Offering a wonderful
Peace of mind worth buying
Bow down last round up

I am wise and you don't know
A cloud is my home
Only some get in
Got a 'maginary friend

The devil put dinosaurs here
Jesus don't like a queer
The devil put dinosaurs here
No problem with faith just fear

Promise those who've gone before
Waitin' on you flyin'
Leading receiving us
I'm as flawed as any man
Look at me I'm smiling
Drink me, eat me up

I am wise and you don't know
A cloud is my home
Only some get in
Got a 'maginary friend

The devil put dinosaurs here
Jesus don't like a queer
The devil put dinosaurs here
No problem with faith just fear

I am wise and you don't know
A cloud is my home
Only some get in
Got a 'maginary friend


The devil put dinosaurs here
Jesus don't like a queer
The devil put dinosaurs here
No problem with faith

Fear

Liar
6. Lab Monkey (5:58)
Anybody out there
Anyone at all
Can you finally hear this deep in
Scratching through the wall
Came far to find me
Down the rabbit hole
Watch me smiling back while chewing on my skull

I know, won't forget
Limped away from the wreck

Is the monkey breathing
Looking kinda sick
Got a witty comment for me
Have yourself a kick
Does it make you feel good
Are you full and strong
Gonna end up in this cage and I hope your stay is long

I know, won't forget
Limped away from the wreck

We'll never know what this is
'til we take a look inside
I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies

We'll never know what this is
'til we take a look inside
I'm sure we'll find what came before

Had enough, I don't need you to stick my hide
Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry
Had enough, I don't need you to blind my eyes
Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry

I know, won't forget
Limped away from the wreck

We'll never know what this is
'til we take a look inside
I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies

We'll never know what this is
'til we take a look inside
I'm sure we'll find what came before it dies

Had enough, I don't need you to stick my hide
Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry
Had enough, I don't need you to blind my eyes
Had enough, no more tears for me left to cry
7. Low Ceiling (5:15)
Old mister fun is back
Wonder where he's been hiding at
Hanging round the edge
Walls unfortified, inside

No different, patchwork hack
Toil away on an unlaid track
Falls closing in, got nowhere to hide
This time

Finding ceilings low
I'm too big or this room's too small
Why's my ceiling another's floor

Past twisted, expected wrap
Attention span increasingly short
Hard to breathe, this altitude will get you high
I've tried

Finding ceilings low
I'm too big or this room's too small
Why's my ceiling another's floor

And nobody can tell you
It's a moment in time
That defines and deforms you

Finding ceilings low
I'm too big or this room's too small
Why's my ceiling another's floor

And nobody can tell you
It's your moment in time

Write me over, false reporter
Can't you let me shine
Write me over, false reporter
Can't you let me shine

And nobody can tell you
It's a moment in time
That defines and deforms you
8. Breath on a Window (5:19)
I mending fence along the road
Barely holding together
Mapless zone the road signs holes
Keep ahead of the weather
Long past time to close dead eyes
Find a break in the highway
Out here I'm invisible
Very few going my way

Breath on a window showing tic tac toe
Rear view reflecting there ain't nobody home

Ghost town strip of misery
I ain't feeling no better
Road kill heart inside of me
Follow it to the letter
Sundown brings a welcome change
Everything that's hiding
More at home in landscapes strange
Are you selling I'm buying

Breath on a window showing tic tac toe
Rear view reflecting there ain't nobody home
Cigarette burn holes outline an old soul
Connect the dot scribbling
And you would never know

Failed to heed the signal
Thought you got through just in time
Crashing hard upon your ego
Penetrated from the side

I'd let you go, but you're always in the way
I'm the damage done, your scar of yesterday

I'd love to go, but you're always in the way
I'm the damage done, your scar of yesterday
9. Scalpel (5:21)
Road narrows, pouring down
I'm breaking without a sound
Bits and pieces of trying
Get what you pay for, nothing

Frozen dreaming of yesterday
Potent, creeping I'm far away
From my hometown I lit out
To save my skin and shed some doubt

I know how false the floor
How high the sky
Been down that road before

It's a lie, you hide in someone else
Like a shining scalpel, cut yourself

Hard as truth is, been my friend
Don't need to be invited in
I'll go round 'til bested
Pick up myself and try again

I know how false the floor
How high the sky
Been down that road before

It's a lie, you hide in someone else
Like a shining scalpel, cut yourself

All comes in time
Don't fight it, don't mind it
Whatever may come

I know how false the floor
How high the sky
Been down that road before

It's a lie, you hide in someone else
Like a shining scalpel, cut yourself
10. Phantom Limb (7:07)
No hope of rescue
I'm trapped here alone
If I don't dig my own way out I'll die here

Gave my loyalty too soon
Now the fork-tongued viper's dead
... Is dead yeah yeah

Weather is shiftin'
So cold goin' up
Through a pinhole of light I see vultures circlin'

Bottom feeders dig my skin
Winner bring a parasite
With him

Weak or pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb

Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb

Every new second
Getting harder to break
No matter which side I end up on
This ain't over

My regrets are very true
Still so much was lies (again?)...
By you

Weak or pulverized
No better medicine
Angels have been advised
Don't want no requiem

I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb
I'll just haunt you like a phantom limb

Gonna wear you like a second skin
I'll haunt you like a phantom limb
11. Hung on a Hook (5:34)
Hung on a hook I'm a mirror
Cracked down the center I split you
Counting the clouds in a storm behind your eyes

Show you the face of a man who
Not that he wants but he has to
Look at the thing he's become, what I see

I'm caught in a still life with no frame
Sometimes people do, the world it don't change

Give up awaiting someday
Future between a gun and your head

Pieces of me on a tile floor
Look up at you as you change more
Floating in fear I appear a hundred times

Hold a reflection inside me
I cannot feel you are empty
Throw me away
I am broken not your time

I'm caught in a still life with no frame
Sometimes people do, the world it don't change

Give up awaiting someday
Future between a gun and your head

Not gonna save you
Perform euthanasia
12. Choke (5:44)
Thought you asked for something better
You should know I practiced that goodbye
Are you so deprived
Think you're doing me a favour
I don't need no lesser savior, alright
Doin fine

Fragile things so close together
Taped up, broken from the fall
Part of something
All of nothing
Very long high way to fall

Go then, if you don't feel right
Livin' in our home
Choking, eat your pride
Eat your pride alone
X2

Need less tension,
The walls around you
Built before you came to tear them down
It was you I found
Take some time to think it over
If it's so hard to walk this world, we might
Then it's time to say goodbye

Fragile things so close together
Taped up, broken from the fall
Part of something
All of nothing
Very long high way to fall

Go then, if you don't feel right
Livin' in our home
Choking, eat your pride
Eat your pride alone
X2

(Solo)

So go then, if you don't feel right
Livin' in our home
Choking, eat your pride
Eat your pride alone
If you don't feel right
Livin in our home
Eat your pride alone
