lyrics

divide and conquer
left a victim of your routine and fear
life divides before and after
close your eyes and in the night you will hear
what your body now tells you

with all these faces how are none familiar?
I worship my obsession though it gets me nowhere
without this threat there is no passion
diffusing in the air with all the world’s inaction
and nobody ever tells you

we’ll press our hands upon our eyes
you may see the patterns you recognize
ear to the wall you hear the sound
you’ve learned there’s no home to be found

the thoughts begin to burn
they start to smolder
as you listen to the devil on your shoulder
he tells you life is short
you’re getting older
you must enjoy it while it lasts
just listen and obey
to what your body now tells you

with all these steps I’ve taken how are none familiar?
I must embrace my instincts or I’ll end up nowhere
without this threat there is no passion
diffusing in the air with all the world’s inaction
and nobody ever tells you

you stare at me with primal eyes
that is a look I recognize
within your breath there is a sound
a pleasure lies in being found

the tension burning in this room
it starts to smolder
as you listen to the devil on your shoulder
he says the night is short
you’re growing bolder
you must enjoy it while it lasts
just listen and obey
to what your body now tells you

divide and conquer
obey your instincts as you crawl on the floor
at the time afraid that you would shatter
you’re not so fragile anymore
we’re both controlled
by what your body now tells you

I’ve spent so long on saving graces
suffer same defeats in different places
now embracing this long felt urge
there are pieces of myself this action will purge
do what your body now tells you
