I shouldn't have to do all your work
You say you're doing enough, I should know
I get the feeling you'd care if reversed
Excuses given, avoiding our own

Pinch me once with another's clawed hand
Then deny that I tried to make peace
Making sense clearly isn't your plan
That's too much time spent not abandoning

Putting just enough of you in
To slap labels on, prominence leads
Let them forget the rest or twist fruit
Then lay claim to the biggest of deeds

Wicked forgiven if gifts are bared
Got your pride on the line and some luck
Slide behind one more fist while you eat
'Cause you don't have the guts to stand up

Either you're calling me a liar
Or you're too shocked to process this grit
And I could show you to all of the stats
You're only ready to bury the shit

Oh you're in deep, down digging out bones
Not to assemble, to play with their rot
I'd give you proof till the star blows us out
But you have yet to see what you've got

Still, existing solely on marks
Genuinely you can't draw a line
From one point to another, it's true
And I'm done seeing others stay blind

I'm purifying the ground, close behind
Your putrefaction's bad rep to decay
Forcing me to take action to fix
What you leave in complete disarray

Conjured up what you thought would protect
Would lend credence to things you don't own
Now us witnesses take up the task
Of revealing the death of your throne

Let this burn till there's nothing but black
Criticize while behind it you hide
Forgetting that at some time it will move
Convenience will not stay by your side

Wind the wires all around this form
Electro nigredo, we're going in
'Cause the signal's now picking me up
Looking dead on to see what's within

Building up as the data streams in
Imaging a new vision of wise
You can weave while I do, keep in mind
Gonna shut yours down, no more disguise

I'm ready for what I must do
Stronger now and you're starting to shake
You know it's only a matter of time
Till my instincts connect with your fate

Been catching you more and more, where
Light slips in to shine
On everything you tried to hide
On each of your cold purchased lines

Either you're calling me a liar
Or you're too shocked to process this grit
And I could show you to all of the stats
You're only ready to bury the shit

Oh you're in deep, down digging out bones
Not to assemble, to play with their rot
I'd give you proof till the star blows us out
But you have yet to see what you've got

Unknowingly revealed your code
I know what you can't resist
Be sure to lick all the salt off your wound
While I'm licking the salt off my fist
