Track Name: Mesopotamian Blues
I got a lot going on in my head like, would I really be better off dead,
or was that just something cool I said?
Is the depressing isolation all a part of the cause,
just a backlit distraction from the lion's claws,
more preventative measures for making sure our brains don't thaw.

And you're just as scared as me, you say,
and all we can do is hope and pray --
but I called God, and he had moved away
Paper dolls thrown in the trash, you wanna leave?
So make it fast, and throw out the last cigarette ash

I got a lot going on in my brain wondering if this is
what it's like to go insane..
So the Midwest's not the best for working on emotional range
Are we doomed as a species to just wander lost?
Had some finer greater purpose, but we just forgot
Time to clear your head, darling, your favorite TV show is on

Masses of people torn apart, convinced they work in affairs of the heart
Turning chemical deficits into art
And that's not what you meant, you said,
as you lay down in your little bed,
but you think to yourself, maybe this is for the best.
