lyrics

All of us alprazolam-bound
Cos oh, we're done hating
All of our hope got gene edited out
And now we're gaslighting

And the town smelled just like opium flowers
That poppy scented brick
But under foot the grey carpets out

How come it's only the dark that gets in?

All of us are presentness-bound
And all on 10 mu G.
And the fate gene just got CRISPR’ed out

How come it's only the dark that gets in?
How come it's only the dark living?

Clumsily write an ode to brave
Caught in a Monday slaughter
Oh, to believe there's anything but hurt like
finding a star and its water – it’s water

On the West Pier there's that mechanised cloud of
starling programming
Serves to remind us that now's all we got

How come it's only the dark that gets in?
How come it's only the dark living?

How come it's only the dark that gets in?
How come it's only the dark living?

Oh, to be one of the brave
To be survival's author – yeah
Oh, to fly like a bird on the world
And shine like the morning oughta


It oughta.
