lyrics

Deep in the catacombs of my distress, I conjure up a new spell as a demoness, I won't sell my soul, but I'll trade my heart for a new beginning for a brand new start. Can't you see that I'm drowning now? Without you I just don't know how, to elapse this sordid sanctuary full of knee-slapping skeletons deriding me, deriding me.

But since I'm blessed and cursed with this cage of flesh and bone, I must create something beautiful, I will create something beautiful. I must create something beautiful, I will create something beautiful.

Been daydreaming on going alone, but I found it's overrated. For now that I'm on my own I don't feel so liberated. Can't have what I want, don't need what I have, same old story now as it was before. Freedom is a state of mind so I guess I'll dance with these skeletons in spite of me, in spite of me.

But since I'm blessed and cursed with this cage of flesh and bone, I must create something beautiful, I will create something beautiful. I must create something beautiful, I will create something beautiful.

Music is my savior I've convinced myself. But what does that even fucking mean? Not fond of enlightenment, but not quite a nihilist, I suppose you could call it bemused detachment, as Rilke put it the purpose of life is to be defeated by greater things. So try me, so try me.

But since I'm blessed and cursed with this cage of flesh and bone, I must create something beautiful.
