Hintzen Bomb

from by the TUSKS band



Dreamy conspiracy,
A cloaked figuring inviting
Masquerade in the dark
So tempting to be lead apart

Tackled by a blacked sense of awe
Tethered like you’ve never been before
Structure is attractive when endowed
Oh what do you want?
Oh where are you now?

Again you’re mixed up with your spiraled ways
Again you’re fixin’, trying to get away
A foot in the mud and another one far behind
You can’t seem to grasp it
You’re losing the concept of time

Hidden by the white veins in your mind
Pressure that is pushing on your eyes
Answer it is creeping up behind
Oh where are you now?
Oh what have you found?

So simple,
when it starts the moving.
Broke intention, lightning strikes
What are you waiting for?

Did you notice
How many that you had to bat away
And did you know
How to discover your fear
It was in disguise

Cobwebs pushing and weaving
Lost what you’ve found
Lost what you’ve found
Regain your sense of direction

Stretch feel the branches moving
Shedding starlight in your way

Footsteps slow encroaching on all the states of play

It was so simple
It was so simple
So simple
It was so simple

Glasses half full of bitterness
What had come before slipping out through an unmarked door
