lyrics

Right here/where images are sold to spark a feeling/of fear and pain, man/of bravery/photograph and sketch/color scheme and how you stand, man/there's language in your countenance and your posturing/it's just all to convey what you want/but imagery can deceive/what you see isn't what it seems/they force associations to create themselves any way they choose/i don't trust my impressions/my senses lie to me/we're all merchants here trading in patterns/not how we feel/we trade in self-preservation 'round here/clearly marked price tags on our ideas/we're all just merchants 'round here/we set the price on how we feel/no/don't sell me you/you're so much more than imagery and the patterned life you know/just give me you/reveal yourself/so frightening and so uniquely true/again and again and again
