Downer Lyrics
Jump to:
Portray sincerity
Act out of loyalty
Defend your free country
Wish away the pain
Hand out lobotomies
To save little families
Surrealistic fantasy
Bland, boring pain!

Holy now in restitution
Living out our date with Fusion
In our whole fleece shun in bastard
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough up the words as you go along, I sing then some

Sickening pessimist hypocrite master
Conservative Communist apocalyptic bastard
Thank you Dear God for putting me on this Earth
I feel very privileged in debt for my thirst!


Holy now in restitution
Living out our date with Fusion
In our whole fleece shun in bastard
Don't feel guilty, master writing

Somebody said that they're not much like I am, I know I can
Make enough up the words as you go along, I sing then some
