Original video
Flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

Bathed in perspiration drowned my enemy
Use my inspiration for a guillotine
I fire a loaded mental cannon to the page
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies

I said hey, what you yelling
About, conditions, permission, mirrored self affliction?
Hey what you yellin' about sadist's
Co-addiction, perfect analogies?
Hey what you yellin'
About conditions, permission mirrored self affliction

Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes with X's in my eyes
And drawing flies

Sitting here like uninvited company
Wallowing in my own obscenities
I share a cigarette with negativity
Leaning on the pedestal that holds my self denial
Firing the pistol that shoots my holy pride
Sitting here like wet ashes
With X's in my eyes and drawing flies
