lyrics

The siren screams
At the bark of dawn
Hounds, growing rabid
I fly off my cosmic hearse
To a land so bright & true
Then I wake up
Guard man grabs the guillotine
He says something, means nothing
It's the chain gang depression

I saw my brother get beaten down
Oh no, don't turn around
Bloody teeth, pierce the dirt
Brother I should've remembered
But now we're in the chain gang forever
& I remember
Playing in the rain
Talking to my friends
Hoping I won't see them again
But here I am
Grasp the pickaxe & slam it down
With the force of everything
You have ever loved
& I love the chain gang depression

Well I cry & cry
Hoping I will eventually subside
Into enjoying my own time
I go to bed
With the same putrid thoughts
I woke up with
Rinse, repeat
All hail the chain gang depression

One night, my mother whispered
In my ear, so I
Grabbed the knife
The steel walked across her throat
I met her aorta
& I bathed in her blood
You've got nothing to lose
So you got to learn your lesson
In the chain gang depression

The siren whispered at the
Brim of dusk
Hounds, lying down
I rest in my cosmic hearse
To a land so dark & blue
