A Lack Of Substance

from by The Absolution Sequence

lyrics

Pipe-in-hand
Curling smoke
Light shines through isolation
So blinding, yet hypnotizing

Filled with false knowledge

The smell of burning sulphur
Distracts from the sound of children
They need help now, more than ever
To pave a solid path to their future
Waving them off, taking another hit
Into another world she goes
This is the portrait of descent

The smell of burning sulphur
Distracts from the sound of the world

There was once purpose
A voice to lead a generation
Reduced to nothing
Reduced to nothing
But skin, bone
And festering scars
The husband a staggering drunk
Abusive and arrogant
The cane, his only friend

Pipe-in-hand
Curling smoke
Light shines through isolation
So blinding, yet hypnotizing

The offspring of an overachiever
Never enough to impress
Never to impress

Labelled a fiend, A drop-kick, dead beat
Failure of a mother
With blacked out rotten teeth
Yearning for help
Rehabilitation, in sight
If she can make it through the night

While His weakened mind is screaming,
Dependant on substance
To sooth and ease the pain
To rot and kill the brain
