Down below are the lyrics to the American metal band Osmosis' song, "Cake is a Lie", which was taken from their seventh full-length studio album, Soul Society.


Asleep I am

Just who knows when I'll regain consciousness?

From the sound of everything,

I must have been imprisoned by a robotic organism

The entire ground I was knocked out on,

Cold fear

Metallic aggression

Emotionless steel

That was probably the easiest way to describe it

One more thing:

Is that the scent of cake that passed my nostrils?

Or am I dreaming about having been killed?
