ILLUMENIUM - THE SICK LETTER (from album JACKAL, 2017)

I WAS THE BEST PLAYER OF ALL TIMES 

BUT LIFE WASN'T GAME AND I JUST CELEBRATED MY LOST 

I BIT OFF MORE THAN I COULD SWALLOW AND NOW I CAN NOT BREATHE 

THE FOOD WASTE BLOCKED MY AIRWAYS 

 

IT'S FUNNY TO SEE 

HOW PEOPLE CHANGE 

YOU TAKE TWO GRAPES 

AND ROLL ONE OVER THE TABLE 

I THINK OF YOU 

STILL THE GHOST YOU ARE TO ME 

YOU ROLLED ME OVER 

AND NOW THIS WORLD TASTES LIKE ... 

 

`CAUSE IN MY MIND 

INVISIBLE FOR WHOLE MY WORLD 

I TRIED TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN 

AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING NEW 

IMAGINATION 

THE GHOST OF ALL MY CREATION 

YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD ME ALL THE WAY 

BUT NOVEMBER SUN 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY 

 

(WHISPER) BUT STILL THERE'S HOPE 

I THOUGHT YOU WERE RAT 

BUT WHEN I OPENED THE CURTAIN 

I SAW AN HAMSTER 

YOU CAN'T EAT MY FLESH `TILL BONES 

YOU CAN'T SURVIVE 

IN A DARK DEEP BASEMENT ON YOUR OWN 

I`M NOT GOING TO WAIT THE NEXT NOVEMBER WITH HOPE 

I`M GOING TO BURY IT, X, 

CLEVER AINʼT WISE MY NOVEMBER SUN 

 

THE BITTERSWEET HATE THAT LIVES INSIDE YOU 

IS THAT TOO MUCH TO "CARRY ON" ? 

THE BITTERSWEET HATE`S YOUR ONLY FRIEND 

WHO'S GONNA TAKE YOU HOME TONIGHT 

 

`CAUSE IN MY MIND 

INVISIBLE FOR WHOLE MY WORLD 

I TRIED TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN 

AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING NEW 

IMAGINATION 

THE GHOST OF ALL MY CREATION 

YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD ME ALL THE WAY 

BUT NOVEMBER SUN 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY 

 

MY SWEET LITTLE PROSTITUTE 

HOW DOES THE WORLD TASTE FOR YOU TONIGHT? 

(NOW THIS WORLD TASTE`S LIKE...) 

 

`CAUSE IN MY MIND 

INVISIBLE FOR WHOLE MY WORLD 

I TRIED TO TALK WITH YOU AGAIN 

AND YOU GAVE ME NOTHING NEW 

IMAGINATION 

THE GHOST OF ALL MY CREATION 

YOU THOUGHT YOU HAD ME ALL THE WAY 

BUT NOVEMBER SUN 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY 

DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY DIDN'T STAY
