about

“I have absolutely no pleasure in the stimulants in which I sometimes so madly indulge. It has not been in the pursuit of pleasure that I have periled life and reputation and reason. It has been the desperate attempt to escape from torturing memories, from a sense of insupportable loneliness and a dread of some strange impending doom.”
― Edgar Allan Poe

lyrics

The morning washes away the lies as promise opens her eyes
With guilty ghosts up in the air she falls back in the nightmare

She’s trying so hard to wake up...

And what her blood requires makes her palms perspire.
Addiction takes away from her ability to conquer

She sold her luck to the living
She sold her luck to the lively dead
And she just can’t stop giving
Into the voices in her head.

And she wants so badly to be dry...

And when it rains, it really pours into her wounds and in her sores.
And all the guilty ghosts above become the people she loved

She sold her luck to the living
She sold her luck to the lively dead.
And she just can’t stop giving into the voices in her head.

She sold her luck to the living
She sold her luck to the lively dead
And she just can’t stop giving
Into the voices in her head
She sold her luck to the living
She sold her luck to the lively dead
She just can’t stop feeding
The monster that needs to be fed

Surrounded by the opulence of what could be considered the Bahrain of North America, they are exactly the kind of contradiction that you would expect from a quasi-anarchist discourse feeding off the fruits of unrepentant frontier capitalism. ... more
