lyrics

reasonable minds can differ
but where are the reasonable minds?
eagles may feast on my liver
still I'll live or die many times
my image serves to be observed and magnified.

circle logic
thought crime
kill for kill
eye for eye
virus
parasite
borne on a meteorite.

can you fashion a man out of clay in your hands?
who can fashion a man in the way that I can?

you can eat my crumbs, while I walk on your
while I walk on your, while I walk on your thumbs.

I'm a generous man.
generous with swift hand
I'm a generous man.

I don't mind that you asked.
I won't take you to task.
I won't take off this mask.

out of clay in a hand
out of clay you were made
thus your life is a theft
and the debt will be paid

you can eat my crumbs, while I walk on your
while I walk on your, while I walk on your thumbs.

I'm a generous man.
generous with swift hand
I'm a generous man.

out of clay in a hand
out of clay you were made
thus your life is a theft
and the debt will be paid

I don't mind that you asked.
I won't take you to task.
I won't take off this mask.

and this mask never cracks.

out of clay you were made
thus your life is a theft and the debt will be paid.
out of clay you were made
out of clay you remain
your life is a theft and the debt will be paid.
