Spellbinder, sidewinder
You're gonna say what you're going to say
Deal maker, heart breaker
We’re a just a game that you wanted to play?

Please excuse my absence
It's just I'm in this civil war of ideas
So please ignore my eccentricities
Should have it won by the end of the year

No, I'm on fire like a disease
Barely afloat, I'm a boat that will sink like a stone
I'm a bone that's been thrown to a wolf pack
Watch me come apart at my seams

Curse lifter, shapeshifter
We know that all you ever wanted was love
Coal miner, part-timer
Tempting red telephonic death from above

Just as dusk is dawn to the night
How do I carry on with my fight
When my compliments slight?
When what's wrong is what's alright?
We both already know how this ends

Watch as I tie myself to the rack
It's a schizoid attack
Stuck a blade in my own back
I suspect the song has been sung

I came from nowhere
And I'll be damned if I turn back
I see the road before me brightens
And behind must fade, and behind must fade…to…

I’m on fire like a disease
Why have I let you pet me with all of your words?
They're absurd, like bluebirds in a whirlwind [volume/tone does not subside here]
Losing trust, I can't look away

Consolation, Desolation
