lyrics

heaven is a mountain
if hell is just a hill
i'm here for answers
i'm here to kill or be killed
what's this, you say?! i'm in a valley?!
what good is this to me?
i'm climbing; getting tired; i've stopped to
rest beneath a tree
so, yes, might i settle for less
and build a castle on this hill
if it doesn't make me stronger
than it's bound to make me ill
and it's bound to make me ill

i'll settle for less
i'll never ask for more and
i'll never be the best
i'll settle for less
incompetent excuses?
call me lazy if you wish
the cynic and the sunrise
the product of someone else’s eyes
i'm free to do whatever i want and so are you
and so are you...

revisions and sadists and crud in your head
i've come clean; i'm godspeed, and i'd rather be dead
don't surrender-don't decay-don't be shun from the day
can you feel it? it's real; it can blow you away

fuck your dreams
fuck your fortune and that sparkle in her eye
fuck your "feelings inside"
fuck all four stable lives

do i pray for this sentiment?
is this not what won’t hit me?
my prayers do have answers and they're all 50/50

i'll settle for less
i'll never ask for more and
i'll never be the best
i'll settle for less
incompetent excuses?
call me lazy if you wish
the cynic and the sunrise
the product of someone else’s eyes
the cynic rides west
the grains of salt have turned to seas
the cynic breathes his own disease and
the sun won't set if i keep riding east
the sun won't set if i keep riding east, ay

wouldn't it be great if we all died and god said,
"ha ha ha life's a game
and now you're all dead
you'll all rot in the ground with
men and women and kids
-you'll decay for days and days and then...
i'll turn you into sin
what's sin, you ask?
why haven't you begun to read the book?
i gave it to dear constantine
and never had a second look
yes, your purpose for being here on earth
is for our amusement
i didn't want the game to end
the devil couldn't use it

i'll settle for less
i'll never ask for more and
i'll never be the best
i'll settle for less
competent excuse:
i said i'll never be the best
i said i'll settle for less
no no no no
i'll settle for less
i'll never be free to be
