lyrics

I feel the prickles forming
Impulsive options storming
I'm operating on a basic frequency

I could pull it apart
Go right back to the start
I'll never figure out just how the hell I got here

But if I think on it
And if I drink on it
I'll realise there is a point to looking back

They say we never learn
But they cannot confirm
They never had to face a life lived empty

And it started with just one
And then the reckoning had begun
And now I'm breathing slow but I'm triggered and keen to attack
Reptilian flashbacks


They say its habit forming
I say I'll grab it for em
Cos isn't life just a blink then residuals?

The sun it hits my blood
The slow endorphin flood
Aren't human beings well defined by rituals?

The open pages blowing
The words and pictures showing
A bleary cosmos is shaken up and crystallised

It projects across your brain
With terms you can't explain
It's like you’re programmed to glitch out then override

And it started with just one
And then the reckoning had begun
And now I'm breathing slow but I'm triggered and keen to attack
Reptilian flashbacks




And if they cast us out
Somehow I think we'll be ok
Surroundings are clearer now
No misperceptions are in the way
So I stand and call it out
I watch the old logic decay
They gape and stumble
As we close to end the play

So mangled up by hatred
Who even cares what they said?
It seems so easy to let their reasons kill themselves

Another square cage
Another catcher paid
The underpinning cause is damn near shouting out

But still they flap about
Nothingness from their mouths
These mammal idiots are ruining the party

I feel my light switched on
You wanna get it on?
Flammable parameters are what this place was founded on

And they started with just one
And then the reckoning had begun
And now I'm breathing slow but I'm triggered and keen to attack
Reptilian flashbacks
