Triggers (Fear and the Nervous System)

Oh, sickness You are a rose Your power cries Second mother to every man Clutch the child Extend to master sun Tiny lives burn out Like so many ants Don’t tell But I worked for the sandman Swallow the stars And die with the daytime Day after day Time after Times dig out those grinding lower sounds Pull out the waves Strip out the insides A private train out to the center pole Straight shot (shoot) to the underworld Half derailed twisted juggernaut Just one passenger Hell’s biggest client My sins and commandments fall away And each face fills the waiting frames A broken streetlamp Cold and convenient Yes I’ve seen your work You deviant Come to me freely Find a seat next to me I couldn’t help notice You’ve never once seen me Find the escape light No stop is meaningless Yes I know what it means When I press this thing It’s a tiny slice Of your experience Do you really think That the lonely are ignorant Helpless In the shape of the father The devil’s bell rang And pulled him under You left and left me with this Final achievement Cursed and unfinished A young fighter Alone on an empire Filled with beauty And idiots and saviors (Just) Stop running through my favorites Take the time to go through the other ones This context makes me meaningless Wait here while I find that reel again Take that and delay our death a while Stuck dry True reports that never fail Call back all the spent humanity Replay all the years you took from me Come to me freely Find a seat next to me I couldn’t help notice You’ve never once seen me Find the escape light No stop is meaningless Yes I know what it means When I press this thing It’s a tiny slice Of your experience Do you really think That the lonely are ignorant Climb to the sun soldier Eat of my flesh master Suck out my collapsing shell And refill me Yes I know what it means When I press this thing Finish this one And close out the bloodline Don’t tell a soul But I worked for the sandman Don’t tell a soul But I worked for the sandman Don’t tell a soul But I worked for the sandman Don’t tell a soul But I worked for the sandman Don’t tell a soul But I worked for the sandman
