I'm not meant to be here

lyrics

Mutations too slow to perceive, the future is now.
Mutations becoming disease, melt into the void
over and over this pushes back time

Run your finger through the piles, lift the skin and separate bones

Pour your drinks into the fire, watch the flames give way to coals
slice the flesh against the grain, run your finger through the pile
watch the coals burst into flames, dead slow and no wake

Thoughts are circular and when they collide
all the tissues dissolve in the light in the fire
but the smoke on their wings is preventing safe flight
currents are above us but our hearts are way down below

Pour the drinks into the fire, watch the flames give way to coals
roasted marrow from the bones, glowing fire
Run your finger through the pile, will the coals provide the light
the theory abides

Your thoughts are circular, your prayers mirror the ether and the soul
Our hearts are the currents above and below, thoughts of forgiveness realized

Watch the coals burst into flames, run your finger the piles, separate
sliced flesh against the grain, marrow from the bone, dead slow and no wake
