Lives

Everyone's afraid of their own life
If you could be anything you want
I bet you'd be disappointed, am I right?
No one really knows the ones they love
If you knew everything they thought
I bet that you'd wish that they'd just shut up
Well, you were the dull sound of sharp math
When you were alive
No ones gonna play the harp when you die
And if I had a nickel for every damn dime
I’d have half the time, do you mind?
Everyone's afraid of their own lives
If you could be anything you want
I bet you'd be disappointed, am I right?
Am I right? And it’s our lives
It's hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
We're alive for the first time
It's hard to remember were alive for the last time
It's hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
To live before you die
It's hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
That our lives are such a short time
It's hard to remember, it’s hard to remember
When it takes such a long time
It's hard to remember, it’s hard to remember…
My mom’s God is a woman and my mom she is a witch
I like this
My hell comes from inside, comes from inside myself
Why fight this
Everyone's afraid of their own lives
If you could be anything you want
I bet you'd be disappointed, am I right?


Satin In A Coffin

You were laying on the carpet
Like you're satin in a coffin
You said, "Do you believe what you're sayin'?"
Yeah right now, but not that often
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
God I sure hope you are dead

Well you disappeared so often
Like you dissolved into coffee
Are you here right now or are there
Probably fossils under your meat?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
God I sure hope you are dead

Now the blow's been softened, since the air we breathe's our coffin
Well now the blow's been softened, since the ocean is our coffin
Often times you know our laughter is our coffin ever after
And you know the blow's been softened, since the world is our coffin
And now the blow's been softened, since we are our own damn coffins
Well everybody's talkin' 'bout their short lists
Everybody's talkin' 'bout DEATH!

You were laying on the carpet
Like you're satin in a coffin
You said, "Do you believe what you're sayin'?"
Yeah right now, but not that often
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
Are you dead or are you sleepin'?
God I sure hope you are dead


Parasites will be excited when you're dead

Parasites will be excited when you're dead
Eyes bulging- ants are in your head and
All your thoughts- yeah, they rot
God and Satan, they gamble when you're dead
Beams of light, one's bright, the other's burning instead
And all your thoughts- yeah, they rot
It was hot and time was sticking to my skin
To all the punch lines of the jokes they wont let us in on
And all your thoughts- yeah, they rot


I get it, Issac.

Great image! Great emotion. :clap:

It's like when all the life has been sucked out of you and all you have is an empty room and only the distraction of mind numbing tv

*shivers* I'm definitely feeling what I'm supposed to feel with this piece, moe. :heart: The contrast between the blaring white light of the television and the figure sitting in the dark is really...depressing, almost, because how many people do this every night? Or every day, even?

I agree with "moonshade...", the sparkle in his eyes is like... the whipped cream on some hot cocoa.
By that means is the best thing of it^^

Great picture!

This is hypnotic. The interaction between the figure and the Tv has my eyes bouncing back and forth like watching a tennis match.

The little glow on the eye is a great touch. It's so low-key, reminds me of zombies who just watch tv into the evening and don't even notice that the daylight has gone. Sad really.

Great impact for such a simplistic image.
