If these walls could talk, they’d probably still ignore me.

All destructive criticisms that can’t improve on perfection.

Catch a throatful from the fire vocal
Ashing and molten glass like Eyjafjallajökull.

And still keep your attitude on self-destruct.

That’s why I’m alone on my own with no team.
Don’t need no green, though I got some to spend;
In the end…all I really need is a friend.
