Special thanks to our man Sejo Navajas and 4th Street Recording Studios for their help in recording and producing this song.



Is everything,
More than honesty could ever be
And iron fist,
Come to kiss our blood-moon mouths, I want to get out, but you're

Asleep at the wheel
You don't mind what you can't feel, a
Veil around your headdress, your gown
Is ripping underneath your smile

I don't know my place
Been saving face for so long, I don't have a mouth
"Open wide," my wisdom teeth met cyanide, when they
Felt cold air, and they're

Asleep at the wheel
They won't mind, what they can't feel, a
Ring around
Their fingers, the ground
Is cracking underneath their marrow
Awake for the day
When they know me, and I know better
Hang around, or hang by their crowns
And something's bound to stay when their conscience leaves

Take my picture, I need to fix your
Mind before it's fluid
I don't like the taste of sewage
Tipped the vile, they leaked the titles
And now the picture's ruined
(Ahh, you've ruined it)
Tripped on idols, their pages pile
Beneath empty digital landscape
(It's not a waste, it’s not a waste)
Meek and mild, made to try all
The uninteresting ways

And now you're
Asleep at the wheel
You can't mind what they don't feel, your
Idol eyes
Kept on the prize
They'll win for you for being good
Awake forever
You can't close what they opened when their
Cameras died,
Don't you dare dry your eyes
You hold your chin up high ‘till they snap your neck

Maltese is undoubtedly, indubitably, a band. It is also a dog and a falcon. But mostly a band.
