  • Lyrics: I am a guest, unwelcome in this fleshy mess. Nervous to speak my mind, with small talk I pass the time. Cringing malodorous words. They say its my brain, is that not your domain? A straight line production got skewed. A manufacturing oversight, that besmirched your bottom line. ...bleeding from pages of verse. A veil of white lies may serve to disguise, I got better things to do. Can't wait till the day I am me on the outside. I gots potential, you'll see. OK, I'll wait outside so my face don't remind, the words of a dead man, who was so sure the earth was flat, means more than my flesh and blood. So will there be a recall on those whose love is unequal? Cause I'm told that you have a plot, but its hard to hear from the parking lot. I'm pushed and I'm packed and I'm sealed and I'm priced but the packaging don't match the product inside I was born to be damned. Romans 1 bent to appease. Just lie to me, touch me, I need this now, please. Whereso go reason, there follows treason. A model of morality. Can't wait till the day I am me on the outside. I gots potential, you'll see.

to build his dream studio. Close to completing work on this ...
