Option Paralysis Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Farewell, Mona Lisa (5:23)
Wash it down the drain
Down the drain
Wash your smile down

Wash it down the drain please
Like animals destined for fuel or observance
Our role is clear never stray far from the path

Everything has an end

But what am I supposed to say?
Oh sorry I guess I forgot
You think you could tell me again?
Please?
I don't remember
What am I supposed to think?
What am I supposed to feel?

There's no feeling in this place
The echoes of the past speak louder
Than any voice I hear right now
Don't you ever try to be
More than you were destined for
Or anything worth fighting for
There's no feeling in this place
There's no feeling in this place
Feeling in this place

What did you expect?
That we would never leave home?
That we would never leave?
What did you expect?
That we would never leave home?
That we would never leave?
That we would never leave?
That we would never leave?
That we would never leave?
What did you expect from us?
We're murderers!

Murderers and rapists and liars and thieves!
You should never put your trust in any of us
There is nothing to gain from this interference
Don't you ever try to be
More than you were destined for
Or anything worth fighting for
There's no feeling in this place
The past speaks louder than anything I hear right now
2. Good Neighbor (2:30)
So there you are
Until the dawn
Still whistling that same old song
Happy all the time
Now she gives the shoulder
Look into her eye
You cannot control her
Look into her eye
You cannot control her

Smile and nod your head
You are the cause of it
This is not your dream
This is not your dream

Hey there you fucking bum
Look what you have become
No secrets without walls
A social free for all
Come on and get it all for free
Just hit that fucking key
Your long term memory
Pushed aside
I'm not evaporating
Pushed aside
Let them sit gorged and frozen
Pushed aside
In their immediacy
Suicide by way of information

So there you are
Until the dawn
So there you are
Until the dawn
Suicide by way of
Suicide by way of
Suicide by way of
Information
3. Gold Teeth on a Bum (5:22)
Don't see you ever do without
Leper
Forced to feel pitiful, and how clever
You call him pretty and blessed child
Blessed
Now see how the pretty boy runs wild
Wild
It's just an ordinary day
I know how to fix you if you come my way

You are the proud and simple man
Simple
Now run as fast as I know you can
You can
Trick me with your deaf, dumb and blind
Dumb and
Feigned hero daily disguise
Disguise

It's just like every other day
But I know how to fix you should you come my way
Pull out your teeth and stare
With your hands at your share
Pull out your eyes and stare
With your hands at your share

You call him pretty and blessed child
Blessed
Now see how the pretty boy runs wild
Wild
It's just an ordinary day
I know how to fix you if you come my way
It's just like every other day
But I know how to fix you should you come my way
Pull out your teeth and stare
With your hands at your share
Pull out your eyes and stare
With your hands at your share

You are the first one to fall down
You are the first one to cry foul
You are the first one to point the blame
You are the last one
Last one to feel ashamed

Couldn't you help me so that I may believe?
Couldn't you show me so that I may be saved?
4. Crystal Morning (2:02)
Cheering crowds deify their waste
Making love to their disgrace
After so much how could you not
Fall asleep, dream and die
Fit for nothing dead where you lay

All the nights of broken glass
Drown the screaming
Choke your breath and hide
To pass the time
When the wrath comes
Where will they turn?

All these nights of broken glass
This vision soon will pass
Soon will pass
All the way from hell to here
This is an act of vengeance
They say the end is near
Well let it start
Let it start now

It is not you who will die
Only the world that will end
It is not you who will die
Only the world that will end
So let it start
Don't live to pay
Load up the gun
And blow them away
Let it start now
5. Endless Endings (2:32)
Nothing but the nerves
Shuddering the sun and moon
Nothing but illusions
Endless endings
Endless endings
Driving on empty for too long
Driving on empty for too long
How soon did you
How soon did you know we were gone
How soon did you know we were dead and gone
What time did you wake up today
Was there a dream you tried to take back
We could have left so long ago
We could have left so long ago
When everyone one around us said so
How fast we assemble
How could you go when I was trying to leave
How could you go when I was trying to leave
How could I go when you were trying to leave
When did you know that we were gone
When did you know that we were dead and gone
How fast we assemble
Endless endings
Seems we tried everything
We tried it all
6. Widower (6:23)
You were a face in the crowd
I threw myself onto you
I tried to take you away
I didn't know how to do
But I could not give you the most
Some things I said were never true
Yet still we clung to a ghost
I feel so bad you never knew
I felt like you should know but I could not tell you so
When you walked away I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away
We can never get back what we choose to throw away
When you walked away I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away
We can never get back what we choose to throw away
I don't know how to hold onto something
That seems determined to grow by the day
Every time I think I can handle
You only seem to get further away
I never realized just how hard it was for a person like me to do
For a person like me to do
When you walked away I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away
We can never get back what we choose to throw away
When you walked away I breathed your name
As you walked away
As you walked away
We can never get back what we choose to throw away
I couldn't watch you wishing for something
That seemed more impossible by the day
Anytime I saw your expression
I only seemed to run farther away
I never realized just how hard it was for a person like me to do
Obsessed with thoughts that deform
Held on by hope too well worn
Crippled because of dreams that eclipse reality
Crashing into truths we don't perceive
We don't perceive
I couldn't hold on to the things that mattered to you
It was my big mistake
Thinking there were two roads to take
As you walked away (as you walked away)
As you walked away (as you walked away)
As you walked away (as you walked away)
As you walked away
As you walked away
7. Room Full of Eyes (4:15)
And in the end I'm
Sure I'll know it's
My mistake
We're forsaken
And in the end I'm
Sure I'll know it's
My mistake
We're forsaken
And on the last day
I'll play turn your eyes
I still must surface
There's a price to pay
There's a price to pay
All I can relate
I can't see anyway
This could be healthy to do
I guess I hoped we could find another way to just get through
And sometimes I'm feelin' that
That I should find a way out of this mess
Oh well I guess we'll make a way
This isn't healthy to do
I guess I hope we can find another way to just get through
This is none of your business
None of this
This is none
This is none of your business
This is none of your business
There is nowhere to hide
In a room so full of eyes
Until we die we're never satisfied
We'll lust for and feed the dissatisfaction of want and need
Oh yeah...
Can I tell you a secret
While your voice hung thick in the waves
You were mistaken if you thought I could behave
I was not afraid
But little honey I needed
I needed a reminder from you
There sure ain't nothin' like the sight of your fine skin
From across the room
Oh yeah this sure seems so familiar
The same feelings that I thought I had lost
We're only waiting to come in through another door at another cost
And why?
Cause we reap what we sow and it's a difficult crop
But we keep cutting down
Yet it grows again
Still it grows again
8. Chinese Whispers (4:06)
Lined up waiting for the execution
Blank stares fall from out of trees
Never leave home praying for the new solution
Sick from all the indifference in the breeze
Put your head down, you're tied up
With a blank stare you know that your time's up
Now you're lined up for the execution
For de-evolution
For the new solution
So you can see the way that things are gonna be
And it seems like you've been running out now
Like you've been running out now
Now it seems like you've been running out
God knows you could lose some pride
With an ego you could never even try to hide
On your deathbed nobody stops by
I remember when you thought you would never die
With your head high, go to sleep forever
It's your last endeavor
Who could do it better?
I know it's just a game to you but not for me
And it seems like you've been running out now
Like you've been running out now
Now it seems like you've been running out
Every second is passing by so fast
Everything that you cling to will not last
There's a chemical weapon made from all your broken dreams
With fear in your eyes lie still in your bed
Don't concern yourself with things left unsaid
With fear in your eyes lie still in your bed
Don't concern yourself with things left unsaid
With fear in your eyes lie still in your bed
Don't concern yourself with things left unsaid
Your contribution is slowing progress
You can't build something with empty promises
Every second is passing by so fast
Everything that you cling to will not last
There's a chemical weapon made from all your broken dreams
Every second is passing by so fast
Everything that you cling to will not last
There's a chemical weapon made from all your broken dreams
From all your broken dreams
From all your broken dreams
9. I Wouldn't If You Didn't (4:14)
Years of the clock go by
How long will you wait for a sign
It seems fiction is hard to break
Forward out of the darkness
Walls of time must fall
Kings and queens must die
Fiction is hard to break
Backwards is your fascination myth
Backwards is your fascination myth
Pillar of belief
Carrier of the key
Hold your head up high
And the time won't wait
And the dreams still break
For in dawn
For in dawn the light reveals
So now how do I live without you?
It seems you've had a lot of time to work it out
What do you think we're gonna do?
You are the ones who build up walls around yourselves to shield your lives from fear
When faced with divinity
Do you all pay all your dues?
Or do you refuse?
If there was no consequence
Could you stay inside the lines?
Leave your guilt behind?
Those lips... crooked sadistic words
Don't waste your turn
Save us from the nonexistent
Teaching that suffering is love
Suffering is love
Suffering is love
Suffering is not love
10. Parasitic Twins (4:41)
I feel the world fall from the inside
It's coming down
My beating pulse crawls to a strange height
Please calm it down
I need a strong pull from your little lies
Or I'm going down
I built it all up from the inside
And you burnt it down
Cause when you took your love away
You let go
I feel the world fall from the inside
It's coming down
Although I miss you I'll never say I do
Bleed like the rain that's falling
Cut me through and through
I'd seen it all hiding in plain sight
And I held it down
But I'll give you all that you deserve tonight
Cause you earned it when you burnt me down
Cause when you took your love away
You let go
I feel the world fall from the inside
It's coming down
Although I miss you I would never ever say I do
Bleed like the rain
Like the rain that falls upon my skin
Then you just gave our love away
You just let go
Then you just gave our love away
You just let go
Bleed like the rain that falls upon my skin (bleed like the rain that falls upon my skin)
