lyrics

Leave nothing behind,
All life is a gift,
Taken for granted,
I was born bored stiff.

What didn't kill me only made me try harder,
Desire tore through me like a forest fire,
My moral compass is all bent out of shape,
Only the devil would show me the way.

Big. Nothing.

No voice will speak my tomes,
No priest will bless my bones.

And if all the world is a slave then all hail, to the new magistrates,
Well I've sipped pennyroyal tea with Adam and Eve,
Even dined with kings and Queens.

Mortality hit me like a tonne of brick,
Place coins on my eyelids so I can cross the sticks.
I pissed my fortunes away in back alleyways,
I had the appetite of waifs and strays.

Big. Nothing.

No voice will speak my tomes,
No priest will bless my bones.

And if all the world is a slave then all hail, to the new magistrates,
Well I've sipped pennyroyal tea with Adam and Eve,
Even dined with kings and Queens.

If you are all the lambs of god...
Then I am the eternal wolf.
