lyrics

THE COMPOUND EYE

I WANT TO BREAK OUT OF THIS SKIN
I NEED TO SHAKE IT OFF
THE CHANGES FORCE THE SHAPE WITHIN
I NEED TO MOVE TO BREATHE
ARE YOU WITH ME?
YOU’RE SOMEWHERE NEAR DON’T LEAVE ME HERE
THEY’LL HOOK THE CLAW WITHIN ME

THIS ALLEYWAY IS OURS
THE CONCRETE AND THE CARS
OUR KINGDOM OF THE GARBAGE AND THE FLIES

GOING EYE TO EYE WITH A COMPOUND EYE

HOW SHALL IS SUFFER INSECT WORDS TO DESCRIBE YOU
THE BEAUTY AND THE HORROR THROUGH THE MYRIAD MOSAIC VIEWS
IT CUTS ME UP IT CUTS ME THROUGH
YOU SAID TO ME “JUST LET IT BE” AND “I SHOULD NEVER HAVE COME BACK”
BUT YOU DID GOD FORBID AND THEN THE MOTOR SHATTERED (CAN’T TURN IT BACK)

THIS ALLEYWAY IS OURS
THE CONCRETE AND THE CARS
OUR KINGDOM OF THE GARBAGE AND THE FLIES

ROT AND DIE IN THE COMPOUND EYE

AND THERE ARE MILLIONS OF ME CRAWLING UNDER YOUR SKIN
YOU’VE GOT TO FEED THE ENEMY FEED IT FROM WITHIN
IN THE EMPIRE OF THE FLY THE COMPOUND MAN IS KING
IN THE EMPIRE OF THE FLY WITHIN… WITHIN…

EYE TO EYE WITH A COMPOUND EYE
EYE TO EYE WITH A COMPOUND EYE
THE UNBLINKING EYE OF THE COMPOUND “I’
ROT AND DIE IN THE COMPOUND EYE
