lyrics

Chorus:
City’s sleeping in a million pieces
and they’re all exactly where they’re supposed to be
Little people in a big machine
trying to live the dream without opening ‘ invisible eyelids
What’s it like on the other side?
There’s no preparing for a new awareness
Plus you wouldn’t believe me if I told you

You wouldn’t believe me
You wouldn’t believe me if I told you
There’s no preparing for a new awareness
Plus you wouldn’t believe me if I told you

Joe Horton:
Red hand and a fistful of dead time [Chill out]
Stick to the script or with one flick of the wrist you'll be licking up piss
where the immigrants is ' Bitch get a grip
Get money ' Get rich
Get your check signed Pick a chemical to get by
Pick a ' Pick a lie then stick to it
Game day nigga

Stakes can't get any bigger
Snake and a river and a thin line between 'em
Thinner than the ribbon on a tree trunk
Thicker than blood dripping from the tip of a pigeon feather
Written in some indigent tongue is a letter in the dirt to the death hum
Predators cry out ' Render the flesh numb
Best of 'em do the reticent clown
Rocking a red lipped smile while keeping the head hung

Crescent Moon:
Had a dream last night ' I was the only one woke
Everyone else was sleeping ' Living their lives in mirrors and smoke
Walking ‘round unconscious ' Not alive, not dead
I tried to shake the pacified passerby but they seemed satisfied trapped inside their heads
Tried talking to ‘em first ' Started yelling when I saw that didn’t work
Cussing with my hands in their faces ' Cops came ‘round tried to put me in bracelets
Sleepwalkers closing in ' Cold as the streets that I’m frozen in
Only one woke only one that can fight back
Eyes wide open, I don’t come with a price tag
