lyrics

please don't praise me.
i wandered without cause.
i emerged from an accident,
and i scurried along
in a gutter somewhere.

please don't save me.
i survived on food alone.
i had no obligations
or symbols to fulfill.
then i made my own.

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.

please don't excite me.
i conquered what i could.
i believed in the accident,
and i carried a gun
in a gutter somewhere.

please don't revive me
and offer me the chance
to activate my bloodstream
and tilt a balanced land
in favor of my own kind

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.

my heart was a flame smothered in gasoline
i had it contained to a certain degree

but i was afraid and orchestrated a fall
a final embrace of nature's joke on us all

fossils of phrases, ancient cities of dust
animals graze where i battled the crust

memories fade, but if you value a scum
consider displaying me in a museum.

driven by desire...
the lower...?
the higher...?
a system entertained me
with melodrama.
