lyrics

Bury me in a nameless grave

I came from God the world to save

I brought them wisdom from above

Worship and liberty and love
They slew me for I did disparage therefore
Religion, law, and marriage
So be my grave without a mate
That earth may swallow up my shame...

What happened to the other day
When we walking through every step of the way together
Well I want you to get straight with me don’t step out of line don’t lie to me
Did you go there, did you say it, did you do it, did you wander away
Well it’s something you’ll have to deal with today
Cause if I have my part to play
My children will rejoice at your scars and say
I'm glad that they handled it that way
The piper had to pay for the shit that he gave

And here's when the story changes within a sound
I continued to eat at time and spend the afternoon making rhymes
I was paying no attention to the source of the omniscient frowns
When all the sudden
The ground became nothing more than sound
It had disappeared and I was floating like I was in space
Oh, I could not breathe but there was no need
I had displaced my bearings and I was getting dizzy
I wanted to vomit because I was totally wallowing in my waste

That earth may swallow up my shame...
