[Lyrics by Lord Worm]
I've learned to control my thoughts
ever since I recognized the first eavesdropper:
listen in on my thoughts,
my logic, my sanity
I cannot let them know I don't know
the verses, or converse in my head:
lash out at future foes,
banter with friends I've not yet met
The psychoaggressive minions of
your lord mock with
laugher I can't hear,
with hidden scowls they admonish me
Nothing's sacred, Nothing's safe:
your filthy god is
this undying nonentity that haunts
my every waking dream
They watch me, his mortal flock,
they know me now
by sight alone:
my thoughts are too well concealed...
Yet I sense more scrutiny
Fleeting lucidity's too loud for me,
let me be my silent self:
our existences irreconciled
Make them stop! I'm rotting fast...
The answer, painful though it
Alter my outer shell...
The listener's may not, then, know it's me
Open Face Surgery: short of
and long on masquerade
Ounce by ounce, lose a little weight
nip here, tuck there... So who needs eyelids?
