Track Name: Tardigrade
You've got a mouth on you, kid
Been taught the patterns I never did
A slur for you a badge for me
May wonder why you don't see me

No God or country or capital city
Awaits us when we go
Bottom feeding bottom leaning
Heroes to anyone on murderers row
Selfless endeavors hard as the weather
But anyone would tell you otherwise
You've got a goddamn time ahead of you

You've got a terrible obligation, boy
Monday's the reclamation, boy
Sunday's the killing of your mother's son
Sunday's the willing, the waning fun


I do my best to hold on to religion
Though it crowbarred itself away
There's no god or country
That would let you stay

I do my best to kill all the idols
Before the end of the working day
There's no god or country
That would let you stay.
