hmm hmm hmm

oh there's castles made of assholes beyond these emerald skies
and we're unleashing them in sections like it's once upon a time
and i know you weren't invited but you can't get too far away
cuz we're coming for your children to form our ad campaign
and the love and sex with robots won't be too far behind you
with a smile, sweat and teardrops to promise you the same

and it sounds like Christmas, i think i'm losing faith
for outside's landslides the song that overplayed

hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm

the substitutes are preaching of a dark and holy time
while their parents are outside barfing cuz their kids are in disguise
their ears are pierced with sulfur and their tongues are parched with blood
from the thorns that they've been licking off the virgin flower buds
that grow in fertile graveyards from the carcasses of rockstars
who moan their gentle lyric from the songs that never die

oh outstretched, palms wet, i think i'm not ok
oh outlet, trap set, the mouse that's under paid


the perfect engine is running in a civic south bound train
where the people can drink their coffee with their chronic morning pains
we pass the fleet of buildings as we launch into the sky
and the sun gives birth to evening then the clouds begin to cry
from the noxious tune of angels as we leave our lives behind us
and soar through ruins and tangles to a departed perfect mind

the last threat, sunset, i think wont be the same
an ancient gauntlet on a moon that never wanes

hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
hmm hmm hmm hmm
