My room feels like a mausoleum, mausoleum.
Voices on the outside, whispering “carpe diem.”
But every moon has a dark side,
Every cloud is unlined,
It’s a sign of an unhealthy mind.
Cars splash on the wet streets,
there’s sexualized women on the tv screen,
for a change, I’ll change the sheets and
feel clean, feel clean, feel clean.
Do you ever suspect what you want is taboo?
Doesn’t matter what but the rules they apply to you,
chiding deriding reproof on their faces and
just where the hell do you think that your place is?
Just where would you get off?
if you could stop the world?
All its buzzing and shifting stimulation but
your very heartbeat disturbs the creation.
Its crazy pattern is just a distraction, a sinner transgressed
for even asking, you better repress what you need,
til you’re feeling half-empty, some seasonal confection
there’s so many roads to dejection, there’s so many roads to dejection,
there’s so many roads... but only the one to pure perfection,
there’s only the one to pure perfection, there’s only the one
where the bones have been picked clean.
