Announcing peace
The easiest bloodline to bathe in
Then wipe off with
Your noose and the next breath

What is real power?

Who holds my head down?
Is it invisible?
Or a hand attached to my own arm

You’ll split the continents
To find that they’ll reform
In the same mess you saw before
You’ll split the continents
And find no relief in new divisions, maps, or compasses

Who holds my head down?

Now I’m caught in the spill
Just like you will
Just like everyone has guilt
I’ll plead innocent to bide time
And see the fuse finish

I’m dying at 24
Just try and stop me

Man your suite and tie
Dressed in a trusted lie
To cast your ballots
For the end of the world
