lyrics

My house is built on marble foundations.
It keeps rolling.
It keeps rolling to a steep incline.

And I've been praying to the asphalt and white lines.
I am nothing.
I am nothing in their sacred sight.

But i'll get what I like.
I'll get what I like.
Eat the light, eat the path.
Laid out underneath a bed of clouds of eggshell white.
I'll get what I like.

I pace the length of this floor.
Send its echoes.
Send its echoes to the empty walls.

"Lie still"
"Know your place"
"Hold your state"
is its mocking call.

But I'll get what I like.
I'll get what I like.
Too old to fight, too tired to try.
Someday the solid ground they stand on will be lost to fire.
And I'll get what I like.

You kept moving off, you kept moving off.

I'll get what I like or I'll take what I find.
Losing light, losing heat.
Fall asleep in a quiet place ringed with razor wire.
I'll get what I like

You kept moving off, you kept moving off.
