Oh Cruel Darkness Embrace Me

from Metanoia by IAMX

lyrics

Worship the screen
Cocksucker lies
There’s a stream of middle-class hypocrisy tonight
Every time we beg for the rich man to provide
There’s countries to be conquered
People to divide

Oh cruel darkness, want you to embrace me
It’s a fucked up world and it’s driving my poor heart crazy

We’re all sleepwalking
The American Dream
In a loop of building the cage and burying the keys
There’s only good and bad, there’s nowhere in between
Everybody loves to judge
Everybody thinks they’re clean

Oh cruel darkness, want you to embrace me
It’s a fucked up world and it’s driving my poor heart crazy
