reputation

lyrics

my friends have got me thinking that I'm needing a vacation
from the island of a man that I've built my reputation
but they're the ones that need to see
that I'm a new-wave prophecy
waiting to combust inside the engine of the industry giants

well, I knew since I was six that I was gonna be a legend
but it might just mean I ain't getting into heaven
well, I found inside of my own soul
the darkness that surrounds us all
and I took a little bite and let it poison my libido for life

I used to think a lot about the state of contradiction
the intention of a lyric and it's lack of a conviction
but now I see the truth in lies
so wipe your eyelids off your eyes
and meld into the setting of amoral aberration tonight

see if you can make it how you always want to take it to me
recognize the situations that surround all the apostrophes
see if you can put the implication on your empathy
'cause I'm never cool enough to be what you wanted to be

well, my friends have got me thinking that I need a motivation
'cause everyone I talk to bores my mind into frustration
well, don't tell me how to live my life
when you're the only one who put me under the knife
always drowning the reflection of the window that you think is a mirror
