lyrics

I can't detach
Can't stand where I am
In between a furnace
And the promised land
Like a thirsty ghost
I wake up tasting sand
Reach for a toast
But end with empty hands
Missiles
Explosions
Breaking ear drums
Eyes filled with smoke
But I can't run
So taunted in positive states
Haunted I try to see straight
My plate is untouched
Can't get the food to my face

How can I get hungry?
When my life is Dexatrim
Racing heart and mind
While I grow thin
So many mistakes
All the weakness I've exposed
This is what I chose
This is what I chose

It's hard now to get to where I used to be
This isn't being
It's retreating
To the land of the "un"free
Reaction to faint applause
Self destruction for no cause
Wounds bleed without gauze
Or antiseptic
This impending infection
Blown to personal pandemic
Can't handle rejection
In this apocalyptic epic
Zombie movie
Closed stores rubble
Bruising
Being recycled
Reduce me reuse me

How can I get hungry?
When my life is Dexatrim
Racing heart and mind
While I grow thin
So many mistakes
All the weakness I've exposed
This is what I chose
This is what I chose

It's almost the end
I say it with inflection
I stare in the dirty puddle
And I see no reflection
It's almost the end
I can't find my soul
Hidden like a diamond in a mountain of coal
Feeling dirty and cold
All these years too old
