lyrics

Obsessed with all your posters of the fractals
Whose contours mirror your complexity
Your endless need for someone to react'll
be the thing to lead to more you need
And don't you ever say you got my back
You'll never have a single sorry slice of me
The voices that you hear are pterodactyls

Everywhere you go, you just coast
You just glide
And all your errors, we forgive
Your reign of terror we can let slide
But careful where you go
You never always know how low they fly

Face down
Nose dive
Cut through an orange sky
To find you where you hide

Collect a set of grudges in a satchel
To be dispensed when you've condensed to tar
And do you hear the laughter
Like a pack of jackals
Cackling at every hint of what you are
Now feel it ending
As your nervous endings crackle
Tackled at the apex of your ascent
The visions you've been sent are pterodactyls

Everywhere you go, you just coast
You just glide
And all your errors, we forgive
Your reign of terror we can let slide
But careful where you go
You never always know how low they fly
Inside

Face down
Nose dive
Cut through a black sky
To show you the harsh light

Pterodactyls tear the thing you love apart
Even as you cling to them with bleeding heart
Even as you sing to them, how great thou art
Pterodactyls tear the thing you love apart
And you can try to run
That will make it more fun for them
You can implore them
See where it gets you
But when they all surround you
And put their arms around you
You're through

I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
You took the final word
You struck the final chord

I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
I warned you, I warned you
You took the final word
You struck the final chord
