Speech,
On the high water mark,
Sing,
For the life of a fleeing flea,
Murdered before his time,
Lies,
Lies,
All fucking lies,
Can’t you see,
This is reality?

7:45, the clock strikes three.
Ladies of the evening,
Spread out before the feast,
Where has the king gone?
Lost his way,
Before he got to the bay.

Visualize.
Phosphorous,
Burning in the night,
Broad daylight,
Mission flown,
We are all going to die.

Seventeen,
Lost in time,
Mission control,
There’s no life,
Can we come home?
No! No! The pilot is on his way!
Burn,
Oh sacred child,
In one grand flight,
Into Heaven’s embrace,
Good night
Oh sweetly,
We do close our eyes,
To sigh,
To die,
The preacher lies,
We tried to live,
But failed at life,
Oh blessed fools.
