about

This is a preliminary mix from Starpilot's forthcoming album ‘Energies.’

lyrics

Slamming ourselves speeding into credit card walls
Mindlessly traipsing suicide through shopping malls
Drilling pharmaceutical poison holes in our heads
Signing up for candy we can't eat until we're dead

Filling up on coffee breaks until we buy new pants
Reading lying newspapers we fill ourselves with rants
Then going to the sweaty gym to work off all the shame
And putting ourselves down again because we are to blame

We are adults
We are not children anymore
We are adults
We speak
Never listen
Until our heads are on the floor

Toxify our souls with stress until we turn hostile
And put another bullet in the gun of self-denial
Insurance bill infections climb majestic picket fences
Suddenly we only give to even our expenses

We walk the streets perpetually entwined with our desires
We beat our chests all ape-like in the sexy moonlit hours
Strip ourselves of truth until we can't see past our fears
Drop bombs of fences to the earth, ignore each other's tears

We are adults
We are not children anymore
We are adults
We speak
Never listen
Until our heads are on the floor

Childhood is just as juvenile as adulthood, but without the ego
At least a child knows it's a child
