Song Lyrics

My life is a sentence that carries no pardon,

I can`t put you out of my misery now,

So stunned by beauty of this madhouse garden -

I`ve taken my chances (then lost them somehow).

This body`s a temple - a shoddy construction,

I`m digging my grave - while boring the well,

I`m paving a path to my own self destruction,

I won`t be content `til I see me in Hell.

No I won`t be content `til I see me in Hell.

I`ve looked back on my time - the names and the faces,

A child long ago that I nearly forgot,

And felt like someone who`d just stepped on the place

where the last stair should have been - (then found it was not).

Life`s just a process of delamination,

Stripping your hopes - dissecting them gently.

I`ve opened my heart - and to my consternation

when I peered inside it was small, dark and empty.

[Chorus]

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,

drinking and smoking like somebody died.

I said "Leave me alone I`m just building a ruin,

The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise."

I`m building a ruin - I ruin a building,

My bridges are burned out - my tunnels are filled in.

It`s all a game I believe - the longer you play it the harder it gets.

The most I can hope to achieve now`s my breakfast,

a priest with a blindfold and last cigarette...

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,

drinking and smoking like somebody died.

I said "Leave me alone I`m just building a ruin,

The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise."

My friends turn to me - wonder what I am doing,

drinking and smoking like somebody died.

I said "Leave me alone I`m just building a ruin,

The spirits are sunken - so the wreckage must rise."

I won`t be content `til I see me in Hell.
