    Lyrics

    There's not a shred of beauty here,
    Residing in the human flesh
    There's only sadness and confusion,
    And the stench of shit and death.

    In moments dull of self-pity,
    Of insufficiency and doubt,
    I catch myself black handed thief,
    Wishing that there'd be someone else.

    Sometimes ghosts are passing through,
    The mind both labyrinth and tomb,
    And yet its still unrivaled here,
    Because things aren't born,
    Only ideas
    Are sleeping safely
    Far beyond the horrors of decay.
    And they are sacred and immortal
    Because they never have to fade.

    Thumbing at times half-heartedly
    Through flipbooks of a lonely child,
    Old silent movies shake and flicker,
    In the dark theater between my thighs,
    Then countless are the handsome limbs,
    That wildly jump and hop
    Soulless bodies unspecified
    As they are numberless and cropped.

    When you close your tired eyes
    Does he then join you in this place?
    Will he cross over, share your dream
    Or does he vanish on the doorstep
    All to quickly disappear.
    Alas! Reality is such a crippled whore
    All mortal things are sick and rotten to the core,
    Only the mind, a frail but kingly jewel,
    Gives birth to beauty love and truth.

    So why not stay and forever make a home,
    In the darkness of the only place,
    You never can belong?
    In a land, sublime that some call fantasy
    Our only hope of love
    Or immortality.

    There's not a shred of beauty here,
    Residing in the human flesh
    There's only sadness and confusion,
    And the stench of shit and death.
