lyrics

Hallowed heroes have hypocritical haloes
At least so the story’s been told
By victors with pens, devoid of all sins
Till the romans returned seven-fold

Of pharaohs and sparrows and white walled wheelbarrows
I think I prefer oaken doors
That open to find a prophet that’s blind
Surrounded by six token whores

Like a spider she spins a tale about the time when
The lawyers had no one to rob
An age long forgotten, like roses gone rotten
Where teachers held the highest paid jobs

And the tyrants were buying the slaves forced to pave
The pyramids triangular miles
And the people believed in a place that deceived
Human hope as it hung by a rope

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

As I glide down the face it begins to erase
The place where sensation does thrive
So I change the channel on the rage box’s panel
And groove with a movie that kills

Time like a rhyme but deep down inside
The animal longs to run through the hills
While the sun energizes my soul
And I know where I go pure energy flows

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles

And all the while no one saw
That out in the ocean, like a powerful potion
Was a vision contained in a vial
Smiling sacred smiles
