You never wanted to surrender to oppression
I think maybe this escape is the only answer to suppression
you could always choose submission
in knowing that you can't give up this life without permission
it's harder than it looks to get the strength to fight the good fight
and not take flight into the light
that calls to you

tick. tick. tick.
breathe ...

dangerously desperate soul
exposed to corrosion
you cry, lie
to delay an oh-so-predictable implosion
but why
why try
WHY FUCKING TRY
I CAN'T FIGHT THIS, FORCE THIS, TIME BOMB ANYMORE

tick. tick. tick.
breathe ...

counting the seconds
the hours fall away
oh how
time flies
when you're
fighting
for
your
sanity
chase out the vanity
it's not essential like your faceless anonymity

tick. tick. tick.
breathe ...

you don't know how you did it
but ageless determination screamed, contorted
kill the detonation!
don't let yourself be poisoned by the publication
the method isn't obvious
or glorious
or in any way victorious
but it's possible
so don't think it's dismissible
when it's altogether probable
and we won.
