Music by Vices I Admire
Lyrics by Dave Curtis

Recorded, mixed and mastered at Vice Studios by Dan Battenhouse

lyrics

I'll recreate you in gold
and manufacture your soul
oh liberator, baby, drag me under

And wander with me a while
'til I taste teeth in your smile
oh victimizer, honey, push me further

Like older versions of me, betrayals waiting to be, inventing venom and divine disfavor

But that's as bad as it gets
choking on cheap cigarettes
drowning in patterns and in beautiful fire

Not again!
Devil at the door when I burn me up
Not again!
Devil like a whirlwind that calls me up

Another paranoid beat, bloodlust is tempting to feed
Drives me just short of crazy, not further

Improved alchemical burns
Give me seniority sir
Or otherwise define my flight to failure

A castle built by default don't leave no footprint at all
Don't give no warning when it topples over

But that's as bad as it gets
choking on ancient regrets
drowning in patterns and in beautiful fire

Not again!
Devil at the door when I burn me up
Not again!
Devil like a whirlwind that calls me up

Follow
Leader
Don't go
Make sure

To leave it all for the sake of the one who says she wants my love
I'll never get it right anyway, I've never seen when I've had enough

Not again!
Devil at the door when I burn me up
Not again!
Devil like a whirlwind that calls me up
