The Perks

from ElectrophilE by The Atomic Atoms



Pacing at the edge of my cage
Fists full of smoke and a dead man's name
"Don't you realize that your life is just a stain?"

Oh, there's a limelight
corrosive in its shine
and I say "When's it my time to decide?"
Fly, fight, or die.
That's my disguise.

Holding out another day
Stray thoughts keep me sane.
What the hell have I gained?

Oh, in a lifetime
I was what I despise
and when's it my time to decide?
Fly, fight, or die
That's my disguise.

We're not out there trading guts for glory
And we don't even see the sky
I'm still awake and that's my only story
of every day I wondered why
Fly, fight, or die
was my disguise.

The Atomic Atoms are the brain child of a fiercely independent minded pseudo manic moody madman and a guy named Tommy. We got our name from a dude at a bar that one time.
