Luxuries Are Never so Comfortable as Are the Familiar, Ordinary Things of Home

Updated on September 14, 2017

Let's get one thing straight
Upon my podium, as the
Upon my podium, as the
Roach egg laying in my brain
I lost my mind, I lost all my money
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Still feel like I'm giong down I hear a distant wailing cry

And come to foreign lands
Roach egg laying in my brain
Empty jars of sleeping pills

No one knew what would happen there
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Empty jars of sleeping pills
Roach egg laying in my brain

Still feel like I'm giong down I hear a distant wailing cry
Oh yeah

Catatonic state
Oh yeah
My cat clawed my eye
Funny thing, he's like you & me
Oh yeah
Roach egg laying in my brain
Turn breakdowns into blocks, I smashed 'em
And come to foreign lands
Boy! ... your soul better belong to jesus! ...
Let's get one thing straight
Empty jars of sleeping pills

And come to foreign lands
Still feel like I'm giong down I hear a distant wailing cry

And come to foreign lands
Roach egg laying in my brain
Empty jars of sleeping pills

Turn breakdowns into blocks, I smashed 'em
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
Empty jars of sleeping pills

Funny thing, he's like you & me
And come to foreign lands
My cat clawed my eye
I lost my mind, I lost all my money
Let's get one thing straight
I lost my mind, I lost all my money
And come to foreign lands
Roach egg laying in my brain

Oh yeah
Roach egg laying in my brain
Dogs... are chasing
I lost my mind, I lost all my money
No one knew what would happen there
And come to foreign lands
Roach egg laying in my brain
Yes, we have your honour, we find the defendant guilty!

Turn breakdowns into blocks, I smashed 'em
Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
I lost my mind, I lost all my money
No one knew what would happen there
Godspeed in glide
Still feel like I'm giong down I hear a distant wailing cry

Oh yeah
Funny thing, he's like you & me

Had fingers in my eyes, had needles in my veins
Oh yeah
My cat clawed my eye
Empty jars of sleeping pills.


Listen up... I warn you
Until all is lost
Until all is lost
Roach egg laying in my brain
I'll leave it up to you, oh problem
Elysian fields...
Speak of mutually assured destruction?

Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Roach egg laying in my brain
Elysian fields...

Next mistake...no more mistakes!
Elysian fields...
Vengence is mine
Elysian fields...
Roach egg laying in my brain

Speak of mutually assured destruction?
Once you've been marked it's finished, done

Catatonic state
Once you've been marked it's finished, done
My creation
Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
Once you've been marked it's finished, done
Roach egg laying in my brain
The problem is you, problem
Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Bet you thought you'd solved all your problems
Listen up... I warn you
Elysian fields...

Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Speak of mutually assured destruction?

Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Roach egg laying in my brain
Elysian fields...

The problem is you, problem
How could it end this way?
Elysian fields...

Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite
Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
My creation
I'll leave it up to you, oh problem
Listen up... I warn you
I'll leave it up to you, oh problem
Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Roach egg laying in my brain

Once you've been marked it's finished, done
Roach egg laying in my brain
Don't want no revenge
I'll leave it up to you, oh problem
Next mistake...no more mistakes!
Am I dreaming? my heart pounds my chest
Roach egg laying in my brain
You're pushing me to a breakpoint

The problem is you, problem
How could it end this way?
I'll leave it up to you, oh problem
Next mistake...no more mistakes!
Game I inevitably lose
Speak of mutually assured destruction?

Once you've been marked it's finished, done
Fill the cracks in, with judicial granite

How could it end this way?
Once you've been marked it's finished, done
My creation
Elysian fields....


Love's a tide pool
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Raised in a form of living hell
Impervious to damage
Epidemic, devastate them
Symbol of society today

A'warring for the heavens
Raised in a form of living hell
Epidemic, devastate them

Now there's nothing left to say
Epidemic, devastate them
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Epidemic, devastate them
Raised in a form of living hell

Symbol of society today
Only makes me stronger

Cause I've burned out my today
Only makes me stronger
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
From a rock star to a desk fool
Only makes me stronger
Raised in a form of living hell
Take some time to show you around
A'warring for the heavens
Born unto themselves
Love's a tide pool
Epidemic, devastate them

A'warring for the heavens
Symbol of society today

A'warring for the heavens
Raised in a form of living hell
Epidemic, devastate them

Take some time to show you around
Hey... look around you
Epidemic, devastate them

From a rock star to a desk fool
A'warring for the heavens
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Impervious to damage
Love's a tide pool
Impervious to damage
A'warring for the heavens
Raised in a form of living hell

Only makes me stronger
Raised in a form of living hell
Do it if you dare
Impervious to damage
Now there's nothing left to say
A'warring for the heavens
Raised in a form of living hell
You realize you are prey for me

Take some time to show you around
Hey... look around you
Impervious to damage
Now there's nothing left to say
Great nations built from the bones of the dead
Symbol of society today

Only makes me stronger
From a rock star to a desk fool

Hey... look around you
Only makes me stronger
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Epidemic, devastate them

Let's get one thing straight
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Up on my soapbox, a leader
Revelation come to pass
I'm as mad as a hatter
Enforce a mental overload
Still we sleepwalk off to work

And I will introduce you to
Revelation come to pass
Enforce a mental overload

Now I can only laugh
Enforce a mental overload
Vested in me by the state I hereby sentence you to be
Enforce a mental overload
Revelation come to pass

Still we sleepwalk off to work
One last look at visions of flesh

Can't seem to smile 'till someone's sad
One last look at visions of flesh
My icy fingers claw your back
Feeling paranoid
One last look at visions of flesh
Revelation come to pass
True enemy or false friend?
And I will introduce you to
Break their pride, denigrate them
Let's get one thing straight
Enforce a mental overload

And I will introduce you to
Still we sleepwalk off to work

And I will introduce you to
Revelation come to pass
Enforce a mental overload

True enemy or false friend?
Hey... look around you
Enforce a mental overload

Feeling paranoid
And I will introduce you to
My icy fingers claw your back
I'm as mad as a hatter
Let's get one thing straight
I'm as mad as a hatter
And I will introduce you to
Revelation come to pass

One last look at visions of flesh
Revelation come to pass
Discharge my payload a mile high
I'm as mad as a hatter
Now I can only laugh
And I will introduce you to
Revelation come to pass
Your tongue twist perverse

True enemy or false friend?
Hey... look around you
I'm as mad as a hatter
Now I can only laugh
Governed by laws set up by me
Still we sleepwalk off to work

One last look at visions of flesh
Feeling paranoid

Hey... look around you
One last look at visions of flesh
My icy fingers claw your back
Enforce a mental overload
