They don't know how old I am
They found armor in my belly
From the sixteenth century
Conquistador, I think

Lashing out at machine revving tension

Where you could say I became chronologically fucked up
Put ten bucks in just to get the tank topped up

Then I found a place it's dark and it's rotted
It's a cool, sweet kinda place
Where the coppers won't spot it
And I destroyed the map, I even thought I forgot it,
However, everyday I'm dumping the body

It'd be better for us if you don't understand
It'd be better for me if you don't understand
Yeah

Then I found a place it's dark and it's rotted
It's a cool, sweet kinda place
Where the coppers won't spot it
And I destroyed the map that I'd carefully dotted,
However, everyday I'm dumping the body

It'd be better for us if you don't understand
It'd be better for us if you don't understand
It'd be better for me if you don't understand

Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
Let me out
