nihilist blues

I've been climbing up the walls to escape the sinking feeling
But I can't hide from the nihilist at my door
Buried in the basement floor, didn't know what I had planted
It blossomed with all the heart of a Cold War

I'm a spirit in a tomb
Won't somebody raise the roof
I'm going white, I'm going black, I'm going blue
Do you mind if I'm exhumed?
I'm the ashes in the plume
I'm a beggar in the ruin
I'm peaking out, I'm burning up, I'm shooting through
I'm only lonely for the truth

Paradise is in my soul, and I'm terrified I can't get out
I'm lost in a labyrinth, we are lost in a labyrinth
Paradise is in my soul, and I'm terrified I can't get out
I'm lost in a labyrinth, we are lost in a labyrinth
Please, don't follow

Paradise is in my soul, and I'm terrified I can't get out
I'm lost in a labyrinth, we are lost in a labyrinth
Please, don't follow

(Light as a feather, stiff as a board)
(Sink to the floor, I sink to the floor)
(I sink to the floor)

(Light as a feather, stiff as a board)

(You were in my dream last night, but your face was someone else's)
(A twitch in my spine, a mutual disorder)
(Isolation neophyte, too afraid to taste your conscience)
(You march in the dark, little lamb to the slaughter)

I'm a spirit in a tomb
Won't somebody raise the roof
I'm going white, I'm going black, I'm going blue
Do you mind if I'm exhumed?
I'm the ashes in the plume
I'm a beggar in the ruin
I'm peaking out, I'm burning up, I'm shooting through
I'm only lonely for the truth

Paradise is in my soul, and I'm terrified I can't get out
I'm lost in a labyrinth, we are lost in a labyrinth
Please, don't follow
Paradise is in my soul, and I'm terrified I can't get out
I'm lost in a labyrinth, we are lost in a labyrinth

Please, don't follow

Please, don't follow

Please, don't follow

Please, don't follow

Please, don't follow

Please, don't follow

I've been climbing up the walls to escape the sinking feeling
But I can't hide from the nihilist at my door
