The Fog And The Androids (Lyric) by Shardik
You call me Houdini, and dare me to escape Tempt me no more, watch me contemplate Just what it is that I don't trust Trust about myself... I find some solace in my Crack-backed friends Upon the shelf Because, I'm sick of you I'm tired of me Mirror on the wall won't let me see Just what it is that keeps me down Kneeling with clenched fists upon the ground You don't call me no more Was it something that I said? Like the fact that "you're a heartless android Without a head..." I'm sorry that you take things Completely out of frame Not to mention all your answers Were nonce for gain Because, I'm sick of you I'm tired of me Mirror on the wall won't let me see Just what it is that keeps me down Kneeling with clenched fists upon the ground Remember when I loved you? I even loved myself Such a wicked fantasy made To project false wealth But as the fog cleared, The lighthouse shone through I spoke over my shoulder "I'm through with you". Because, I'm sick of me I'm tired of you Mirror on the wall won't let me see Just what it is that keeps me down Kneeling with clenched fists upon the ground You call me Houdini, and dare me to escape Tempt me no more just watch me contemplate Because, I'm sick of you I'm tired of me Mirror on the wall won't let me see Just what it is that keeps me down Kneeling with clenched fists upon the ground Just what it is that keeps me down Out of the fog, clarity's found.

Narrow space between the fog and the ground. Just right for crawling.

definitely lyric; and kind of fun. but not really interesting. I can imagine this set to music, though, and people singing along.
