lyrics

L'ART EST MORT

i'm only real in a quantum sense
my every act is free from consequence
someone constructed me from unconsciousness
and i'm imaginary
and so are my friends

i was just thinking,
what can i do right now,
what can i do right now?
just drawing up another plan

published, accomplished,
certified, distinguished,
a pillar of the industry
everlasting reverence,
the boons are multitudinous
from my instrumental property

that was some being,
to draw me up right now,
to draw me up right now.
then i became the damnedest man -
i am an action

i'm only to be read in the present tense
my life's a complete
sentence

published, accomplished,
certified, distinguished,
a pillar of the industry
everlasting reverence,
the boons are multitudinous
from my instrumental property

rubbish, unfinished,
ossified, extinguished,
no more instrumental property
no more instrumental
