Let Glasgow Perish

lyrics

i wake up with a thirst for an old feud,
old face,
old stories,
old lies by the end.
i scar myself like a map, each contour unending.
lines worn deep, fire and peat in the dark.
i never found lights comforting, nothing there.
pale in the glare.
rot, repeat, a cursed fucking life.
and so i sink back in the dark,
the earth draws me to its womb.
the drink and the axe.
the grain.
the spark.
creased and depraved,
appraise your fucking life then throw it away.
