lyrics

Seven stitched smiles on such plastic faces.

Bring out the knives and start the rat races.

Stuff your mouths full (throw it out, but buy it back.
)
Hate the way it looks and shines on your finger.

Buy a bunch more records and rocks for a better
excuse to leave your house to be a home wrecker.



Run, run back to your mum and dad - cradle your soft caved-in heads.

Run, run back towards the horizon - hope you don't die a third class man.



A needle pulling at your flesh violently
.
Fire coursing through your veins so silently.

Rummage through your pockets incase you have more to throw away.

Grow a life in your belly for the sake of showing
 you have a light somewhere without us knowing.

But in the end was it really worth it all?



Run, run back to your mum and dad - cradle your soft caved-in heads.

Run, run back towards the horizon - hope you don't die a third class man.



Tomorrow's arriving.

Yesterday's passed.

It's funny how things get spoiled so fast. 

The next thing you know, you're falling down.
Bring your act, bring your ego, bring your beauty, bring your house, bring your car, bring your bank, bring your sadness, bring your tragic, bring your fear, bring your shit, bring your fuck, bring your guns, bring your everything!


And die like a third class man.

about

Sean Kua Toronto, Ontario

I like to listen to music and make music, hey, what a coinkydink!

I'm inspired by many artists both living and dead, and by non-artists also living and dead. I like to write songs about people I encounter, or things that I like, sometimes things that I hate, or how I feel. I really hope you enjoy what you hear and you help feed me! ... more
