Released as a single and on Hostile Ambient Takeover, 2002.

Lyrics

I can feed from the angel
On down here to blow my mind.
I'm away from the nail
All we be will come alive.
And you are my horrid
Rotten rings are wrong


Away from the mangle rare we don't need
I got the one to make me all right.


We ride for never
Nothing can or will arrive
We fight at zero
On holy right is round.
Do you well, we're willing
Hired hand for the eye


They are alive and wasted on me.


You are so in there
Will you leave me?
You as intended
But I'm not worried
Are they really harmless?
I don't believe it.
