The sun never sets on the empire in my imagination,

 

If I hate the current timeline, I can escape into one that’s better.

 

There’s a price to pay for creativity, it’s not eternal damnation,

 

It’s much more than that, you gotta sell your soul to the demons.

 

The road to Heaven, is impeded by toll roads from Hell,

 

And if I have a negative balance, then I have to use alternative currency.

 

Do what you will with me, I can deal with the trauma in therapy,

 

As long as I do what I need to do, everything will be alright in the morning.

 

Bleeding all over the page, so that my essence spreads through the internet,

 

Come inside my humble abode, I can boil some tea, the water straight from my soul.

 

A little honey in your cup, while my coffee mixed with multiple shots of vodka,

 

Take a drag from my electronic cigarette, don’t mind me, just paying off my debt.

 

Need that dopamine rush to get going, maybe mixed with some epinephrine,

 

Once I get my daily fix, everything is copacetic, now the real trials begin.

 

I don’t know how to fucking surf, but I’ll find a way to ride this fuckin wave,

 

I don’t care what it takes, what I won’t stop until they see me as the kingpin.

 

The sun never sets on the empire in my imagination,

 

If I hate the current timeline, I can escape into one that’s better.

 

There’s a price to pay for creativity, it’s not eternal damnation,

 

It’s much more than that, you gotta sell your soul to the demons.

 

The road to Heaven, is impeded by toll roads from Hell,

 

And if I have a negative balance, then I have to use alternative currency.
