Paradise

Paradise

Nowhere to be found
Silence keeps me down
There’s tension in the air
What changed?
You say you’re full of doubt

Am I losing control?
Tyant!
Compulsively mulling over the
Greater implications of subtlety
You’ve gotta keep it together now

I want to believe you

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything’s so nice
Gather and multiply
It’s cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It’s great to be alive
‘cause girl, you’re so fine

I’ve murdered voices in my head
That say “swallow before you chew”
I’ve adopted the mantra
I just want to entertain

Swingin’ in my sleep
I’m restless in the deep
A demon rises with the truth

What keeps me sane is you understand
Sabotage!
Sheep become people once you father them
Should we bother them?
I don’t see it in you

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything’s so nice
Gather and multiply
It’s cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It’s great to be alive
‘cause girl, you’re so fine

All we see is irony

I want everyone to put their hands together and praise this thing we call a life!

Everybody’s sayin’ “it ain’t so bad”
But beneath the static screams the truth
That you’re desperate, weak
And compulsively sink
Into anything to rule out delusion

Welcome to paradise
Where life meets purpose
Everything’s so nice
Gather and multiply
It’s cool
Live here in paradise
We kick back, throw back
It’s great to be alive
‘cause girl, you’re so fine
