Parting Of The Sensory
Parting of the Sensory - We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank
Lyrics:

There's no work in walking and it fueled the talk
I would grab my shoes and then away I'd walk
Through all the stubborn beauty I start at the dawn
Until the sun had fully stopped
Never walking away from
Just a way to pull apart
Dehydrate back into minerals
A lifelong walk to the same exact spot
Carbon's anniversary
The parting of the sensory
It's old, old news to read
The parting of the sensory

Who the hell made you the boss
We placed our chips in all the right spots
But still lost
Any shithead who had ever walked
Could take this ship and do a much finer job
This fit like clothes made out of wasps
Oh fuck it, I guess I lost

The parting of the sensory
Carbon's anniversary
Just part of the game if you please
Carbon's anniversary

Who the hell made you the boss
If you say what to do I know what not to stop
If you were the ship then who would ever get on
The weather changed and for the worse
It came down on us like it had been rehearsed
Not like you'd hoped but change will surely come
And be awful for most and really good for some
I took a trip to the exact same spot
We pulled the trigger, but we forgot to cock
And every single shot

Oh fuck it, I guess we lost

Someday you will die and
Somehow something’s going to steal your carbon

Someday you will die and
Somehow something’s going to steal your carbon

Well someday you will die somehow and
Something’s going to steal your carbon

Someday you will die and
Someone’s or something’s will steal your carbon

Someday something will die and
Somehow you'll figure out how
Often you will die somehow and
Something going to steal your
Probably nothing will die and
You will probably just steal his carbon

Someday you will die somehow and
Something’s going to steal your carbon

Hey, hey, hey

Someday somehow or something will die and
You will steal his carbon
Somehow you will die and you will figure out how
Often you will die somehow and
Something's going to steal your carbon

Someday you will die somehow and
Someone’s going to steal your carbon

Someday you will die and
Somehow you will figure out how often

Someday you will die somehow and
Something’s going to steal your carbon
You will die and somehow something going to steal your
Always have to figure out and
Find out we were bathed in carbon
You will figure out that somehow you were
Someday you will die somehow and
Someone's going to steal your carbon
