lyrics

Come on back now with full steam
Pick up right where you would lean
Lost your want for what it's not
Fail to see most all this rot now it's
Not a competition, no
Never a competition, it's
Just a roll of dice now, it's
Just a flip of coins now, it's always
Just what you've been dealt now, it's
All to blame on them now
them now
them now
them now

Give it up on hearts now, don't
Put me up with martyrs, yet
This is all you need, I said
“Make it a new cycle now,” just stop
Going through the motions, now
Come on man, come off it, now
Nothing left to say, he said
“Now you've got too cocky”, now yet you've
Taught us to be ruthless, you've
Chalked us up as useless, you've
Gone and lost the blueprints
blueprints
blueprints
blueprints

Sitting as the seventh still
Vying for attention though
Try you might have come before
I don't know where I've been borne, so you
Set yourself back on the six
Build up beds of old toothpicks
Take the path that least resists
Wonder why no bridge exists, but know
This is just catharsis, from
Scaling all the tar pits
tar pits
tar pits
tar pits

It's not smoke and mirrors, but
It's all quotes and pictures, how
You fall on your knees again,
Drop the weighty ball again, so you
Revel in the peoples' dirt,
Don't loft me up with rebirth
Sown the seeds now in this earth
Wait to get what you deserve, when we've
All been promised interest, now
You're picking at the harvest, now
You're just a lowly fly now
fly now
fly now
fly now

Come on back now with full steam
Pick up right where you would lean
Lost your want for what it's not
Fail to see most all this rot when we've
All been promised interest, now
You're picking at the harvest, now
You're just a lowly fly
