I didn’t mean to buy it

Commercial break made me bleed

Shovelling coin and gore

Providing laughter

I didn’t need to get it

Advertisement made me weak

Peddling junk before

Bankrupt hereafter

I didn’t choose to feel it

I only want to believe

That I’m not making do in the face of my failures

Turn the winch eh oh eh oh

Wrinkles in the plaster

Turn the winch eh oh eh oh

Nothing’s what I master

I bleed and I live and I breathe this compromise

And if it never will cease, I’ll scratch out my own eyes

Hey, you! You can’t be saved.

No way of side-stepping the grave

Handmade to chew on the roots
