Lyrics[edit]

    We have no future
    heaven wasn't made for me
    we burn ourselves to hell
    as fast as it can be
    and I wish that I could be the king
    then I'd know that I am not alone
    
    Maggots put on shirts
    sell each other shit
    sometimes I feel so worthless
    sometimes I feel discarded
    I wish that I was good enough
    then I'd know that I am not alone
    
    Death is policeman
    Death is the priest
    Death is the stereo
    Death is a TV
    Death is the Tarot
    Death is an angel and
    Death is our God
    killing us all
    
    she put the seeds in me
    plant this dying tree
    she's a burning string
    and I'm just the ashes
