Lyrics:

[A jawharp, a repeating riff on an electric guitar, and a 6/8 drumbeat introduce this song]

[A low-pitched acoustic guitar acting as the bass joins]

 

You are content to silence yourself.

You’re afraid of suffering.

Like the aristocrats of now, just pride and greed.

Oh, world of the dead!

You are deceased yet your mouth keeps consuming like it did before.

 

[A repeating acoustic guitar riff joins the mix]

 

What is living in your skin?

What is living beneath your skin?

Demons are writhing through this thing that we call life, but who are they?

Who are they?

 

[A new repeating acoustic guitar riff joins the mix, dropping the previous one]

[The melodica joins the mix]

 

Who are the real demons in this life?

The police? The businessmen?

Are they really that bad?

Oh yeah, they are.

Question not why. Question not why!

Forget all; consume your life away.

 

[All previous instruments and riffs join the mix]

 

Question not this death march of your soul.

Question not this death march of your soul.

Question not this death march of your soul.

Question not this death march of your soul.

 

[A more reverb-heavy acoustic guitar riff solos over the other parts]

[Followed by the climax of the song with the introduction of twin tin whistles to draw the whole ensemble of different acoustic guitar parts together to a cohesive end]
