The Helping Hand
As I hunger to reform 
Moros poses overhead 
It's never enough to open the eyes
The view is bright, they say 

As I hunger to reform 
The sickness takes another pause 
Just to greet me as I find my wings 
A starch to paralyze 

A chill can move you 
But just as far as your darkest corner shows 
You're freezing either way 

Don't motivate me
Just to castigate me 
Intentions pure as they're oblique
Tough as love is, I'm so weak

Don't hypnotize me
Just to proselytize me 
I'll never be part of your clan 
I'm an incorrigible man 

This specter knows I'm a lost cause
If you could see it would you run? 
Do I have the words to find solitude? 

No refuge in isolation
No respite for aching limbs
Only one poor soul can tell me I'm alive
And he's fucking gone 

As I hunger to reform 
Moros feeds the ones who maim
It's more than enough to open the eyes
My door's the other way
