lyrics

Intro:

"Well, I'm a killer and I must do what I'm paid for!"
"Wh- Who would want to kill me!?"
"(scoffs) A killer. Don't ask reasons"
"huh. So you mean I've got to die today?"
"That's just what I mean." (Struggle)

[Verse 1]
Let me be Nova
Because being Adam’s gotten me nowhere
And recently, I seem to have realised, I don’t care
My mind is racin
And leavin me pacin
Stayin awake for so fucking long that my days’ll mimic my nightmares

People are demons and making me something evil
Even increasing the need to feed my need to be lethal

My daily leisures have become my guilty pleasures
and attempting to try and make any sense of them is feeble

I won’t be happy ‘til there’s none of you left
Or a psychopath has put a fuckin’ bullet in my head.

Don’t get it twisted though, I’m not gonna die
I’m gonna laugh and take it out and jam it into his eyes
I’m feeling violent like a pirate decidin’ on who to silence
When I feel like I’m next put to the test.

But that’s impractical
My blade is dull,
My trigger’s been pulled
And in my backyard, there’s no space left.

[Hook]
It’s like having a deathwish
And I’ve come to accept it
I lie, frozen and breathless
And my mind’s infected.

This feeling it’s tremendous
And Totally senseless
It’s like having a deathwish
Like having a deathwish

[Verse 2]
I’m a nuke inside a jack in the box
The silence of a lamb, with the cunning of a fox
Or / A guillotine en route to your head
Or the head of a horse, for a surprise I your bed
The kid forever getting’ himself into trouble and
The last survivor trapped beneath the city rubble man
I’m uncomfortable, you’re inside of my bubble and
The consequence is that you’re gonna have to lose another hand

I’m not naïve enough to just believe in fate
I’ve had enough bullshit stacked on my plate
I like to sit and think of simpler days
That’s why I chose a beat to take me back to when I played Runescape

I find it funny that the kids who knock my style
Prefer a band in which the Lead singer’s a paedophile
I take it back, in fact, I find it disgusting
And that’s one prophet lost who won’t have a second coming

[Hook]
It’s like having a deathwish
And I’ve come to accept it
I lie, frozen and breathless
And my mind’s infected.

This feeling it’s tremendous
And Totally senseless
It’s like having a deathwish
Like having a deathwish

[Verse 3]
This is one for the people who like pissing people off
As a preventive mechanism from getting them pissed on
The hungriest wolf’ll run in front of the pack
Coz at the end of the day it’s dog eat dog
I’ll think I’m an alien and flap, feel trapped
aut viam inveniam aut faciam (Latin for “I will either find a way or make one”)
My perseverance here is the clearest when I feel this
Is a circus and my purpose is to entertain the crowd
But now I’m down and out with things and swings
And roundabouts I sing for kings and queens
As the outlaws informed they will for me.

The hell, do I deserve it, my peace it would disturb it.
Turn the words, another purpose, second person “me” to “we”

I may not have much but I’ll share what I’ve got
And I’ll be grateful that I’m faithful to the people unforgot
I know the word I’m looking for is unforgotten it’s preposterous
And often this is rotten on the pollen

[Hook]
It’s like having a deathwish
And I’ve come to accept it
I lie, frozen and breathless
And my mind’s infected.

This feeling it’s tremendous
And Totally senseless
It’s like having a deathwish
Like having a deathwish
