We're kicking and we're screaming all the way to the grave. We were promised something better but when it couldn't be named we scorched a bit of earth, and did it all for the fame, and a comfortable position when eternity came.
Don't you kids all wanna wear the mark of the beast?!
Don't you wanna know what it's been doing to me?!
Don't it ever scare you when they all seem to think that you mean every word that you say?

Should I trade all of my blue skies for bitter truths? Or my good name for just a slightly better view? I'll do whatever you want me to do.

Emptying my pockets at the end of the day, I found a piece of every pound of flesh I managed to save. Baby, baby, baby, oh, you've been so very naughty. You went cheating on your Jesus with that slutty little Logic! And now you're gonna get to be the voice of the few! The unbelieving masses will be looking to you!
Don't you ever worry. You've got grit and resolve and the patience of an angel evolved.

I love you now, and I loved you then, will I ever love myself again?

Pretty soon, they'll all forget that I was ever here. And so will I, with any luck...
