lyrics

keep on singing that arid song
from a pair of shrinking lungs
we know who you are and where you're from
but every time we look now another bit's gone
like how you excelled when you were young
in philosophy and music surpassed everyone
but now every commercial that they get you on
is a way to abuse it
can only reduce it

as they bastardize
and they bowdlerize
we can see from your eyes
that something's not right

wouldn't you rather just move away
to a nameless town and live quietly
we don't know the wealth that we have
but all the same it never gives us any peace
the things we should do start to pile up
your piano is stagnant
your guitar's got no guts

so they harvest your ovaries
for a fragment of melody
but nothing can stop this entropy

keep on singing that dying song
on a cadence of oblivion
in praise of the darkness
in spite of the sun
you're fading away
when you
promised
you
wouldn't
