lyrics

i was biding my time in resistance
until i broke beneath the weight of the load
of fortune's fold and its tawdry assistants
and now i'm waiting for the lie to take hold of me

ordered now so there's no indecision
but what's the price of this structure in me
a sacrifice to the god of compulsion
as i wait for time to take to hold of me

wait, as time takes hold
wait, the lie takes hold of me
wait, as time takes hold
wait, the lie takes hold of

seeking now the realm of detachment
an oath to pleasure and the world that it owns
tainted only by the pain of attachment
as i wait for time to take hold of me

reflections of such polite conversation
so full of weary words and empty refrains
with a hint of your old condescension
we feel the force of compulsion again and we

wait, as time takes hold
wait, the lie takes hold of me
wait, as time takes hold
wait, the lie takes hold of
