In A Way 03:25
In a way you know I'm lying Cause I've failed you more than twice It's okay to say you're tired From trying to break down all this ice Now open your eyes And take a look At the truth When you said you're back you told me All you needed was a kick And what I had to do to keep you Was to not push away But what could be done With someone like you The kindest words were slipping through It seems to take Was just as hard As letting go Being dumb enough to lose you Is the one thing I regret I don't think that you remember this now In a way I hope you do
Happen 04:54
I had been talked into more daunting shit Than what we share Unmistakeably caught still among Way colder veins Laying within my morning sheets And grinding 'gainst your hollow space Feel out of it bit weak Just cutting through the day I've seen it all before and I lied to keep it sane It's when I feel ignored that it all starts to seem so Broken Call in sick and try to reconstruct Defragmentate my brain Begin to wrap my mind around how You see the things I throw your way We build towards a sin and a world to fit it (Ain't no mistaken) A century old game That you can't seem to let me win I've waited– tried to be a better me than what you'd only smile to So commonplace mundane among debris of paralyzing gazes You can't even entertain the thought of going, or the feeling that, well, I just might And I start to feel alone, keep lying 'bout our fate that seems so broken.
An Esper 03:59
They told me she reads minds with unforgiving eyes They told me she's a witch and fate is on her side And when we were alone she'd move things aroung the home Shake and turn a milk-white eye to all our troubles When I'm being told I can't Turn your page and it's all cobbled up and burned, she said Strain your gaze a few days further into me If you can't see what I know is haunting me You breed an esper with every answer that you steal And I'm not made of as hard a fabric Between her iron lips, I'd trickle down a sip My bleeding wouldn't heal but taking was her thing As of how we sealed the deal, couldn't say I know for real But I'm sure I damned myself and told her If you can't bring a shining star among our eyes Be sure of this, I'll be counting on you To bring an esper into my dying world And I don't think I'll come back to save you She cuts too deep– I'm still a kid So on I follow Onto the burning bitter end I'll have to swallow Sometimes I'm bothered by the sense That all this god-forsaken mess Was woven like a dream in my own head Strain your gaze a few days further into me If you can't see what I know is haunting me You bring an esper with every answer that you steal And I don't think I'll come back to save you Come back to save you
Tickdown 04:45
It's a thing you should've known Nothing I had never shown All is good, have it your way Until I feel like being away Try so hard to smile and always lie about why I Just can't seem to see myself too close to you Empty glass– I see them too All those what ifs being made true Time ticks down just wait to see How feeling you is ending me Tired of the swings between your soft lips close to mine And all the vengefulness of moments full of truth Chewing through me is a life that runs and spirals down Until I'm pointing fingers I could use to climb back up again Try so hard to smile, don't look unkind or turn away Sift through the meaning of the things you used to do Wrapped around me just as tight is her disturbing smile All while her eyes tear up and scream forth "time ticks down"
Successor 04:31
You'd said "stop being so cynical, it's grossing me out" I guess there's things in me that I could do without I'm incompatible and don't really think things through I'm being sucked within this dead-end fate with you Working around a wretched state of my mind But the world's too big and too unkind So please murder me tonight I really hope you do There's not much I can make of this life If it's spent in a daze looking at you I'd always said "don't let the bastards grind you down" With hope and patience our dreams won't let us drown And now we're rowing, holding for dear life The boat is sinking and I blame my inner strife Here I am making a fool of myself Because that's what I am So please murder me tonight We're all to blame and no salvation The way I'm wired doesn't seem to do any good Snap back, spit in the eye that's winking at my doom So please murder me tonight I really hope you do There's not much I can make of this life If it's spent in a daze looking at you
Cells 02:54
I'm a fool, inside my mind you'll find all my mixtapes Of old men that try to sound like bands of youth Now I know, it's far too late to say all my goodbyes And pretend I left for some place far from you I reach out and try to understand the riddles of your mind (I reach out, touch your face) While you browse through empty dreamy landscapes (With stepped over hands) So excuse me if I ever tell you to open your heart for me (Excuse this way of asking you to open your heart) Now that the world is drowned in light I'm a fool, inside my mind you'll find all my mixtapes Of old men that try to sound like bands of youth I'm a fool, inside my mind you'll find all my mixtapes Of old men that try to sound like bands of youth Now I know, it's far too late to say all my goodbyes And pretend I left for some place far from you
Waiting for the snow In the glacier of your soul The starless sky is dark as coal And I'm waiting here alone I haven't seen the sun today I only saw myself An empty head with eyes that pray And it's just another day Waiting for the snow And the fog is laying low Blurry scenes of daily life dive in deep And bring the night Fixated on the wall Hazy shapes adopt their form Reach my hand to touch And feel a warm embrace That melts away the memories And brings the light of day, light of day (Raise your head) Now raise your head (And look above) And look above) (Stretch your body) Welcome me back home The snow has come I'm waiting here no more Don't have to feed myself with lies I gave it all I've got But how could I forget We were never meant to cross each other's path (Gave it all I've got) (But how could I forget) These lines were always meant to stray so far appart, far apart
Every gift I give is a parting one... I've heard lifes for everyone but I can't have none The tough thing is to never let yourself look back But no matter how I try this nut won't seem to crack My dreams all scream the truth but I close my ears and shove them all out I lock myself in empty rooms and I forget how to get out Familiar voices call to me but the smoke's too thick to hear I wish I still knew how to follow them away from here Gazing up into a pale lit sky (And all the clouds are gathering) Can't see a bright side and I don't remember why I'm looking in at lives of houses that all look the same to me (And all the faces smiling) Tracing everything back to what it used to mean Hide this face from the world that, I'm afraid, knows my shame Keep this claiming hands away from the ones that I said I loved My mistakes form circles, hug and suffocate me in my sleep They would be so proud of me, could they see...
Barbs Of You 04:05
You can believe in you Leave me out of how you managed to do It's not okay to say What you want back is "kind of" me "somehow" Value yourself more... More than you ever did my presence in your life Still it'd be nice for you If ornamentally I'd be there too (Keeping me from moving on is not the prblem I don't want to move on Each wound in this body is atonement from you What's harderst is the ache) (BARBS OF YOU!) So don't wake me from this sleep, I know, The things of then are all tomorrow's past, until, till forever is another empty word, and I'm sure I'll still have you just as long as all these barbs of you stay put...
Needlepoint 04:15
Striations 05:40
Sharp punch through gritted teeth, cough up the blood and spew Your touch too formal and your hate is nothing new Lock heads with permanence and struggle to keep firm The seams are far from sewn, the wheel too hard to turn He's prying open doors you shouldn't have to lock Head down between your knees to brace against the shock This isn't something you can live through day by day It's nothing you can solve by wishing it away... Empty hands sprawled on blunted knives Hope wastes away before my eyes Stagnated corpse and bone of time-honored bonds, Love doesn't chip away like old paint from the walls Scoff down the detriment and dare you ask for more..? Clamped up against yourself, can't stomach any gore Kneel down and slip beneath until he goes away It's harder to confront than swallow all this shame Stinging fingers crawl on skin that's dry Dreams stop all over just like the tears you cry Brittle balances give way, you're diving down Trust isn't weakness– it's a curse, so wear it proud
The Cull 07:36
In what we want there is no shame We're unrefined and playing insane We can't adapt and don't conform With no faith in and no love to the cable-born I saw god weep He was looking at you A proud declaration Of things He can't hold true Subatomic youth Hope distilled into sweat It's sliding down through your face Turns into fear on your neck Fooled by all– deceived by none Our eyes see your forked tongues Discarded weeds burn bright as day And flames crawl towards the hay Piled insecurities Against the wind Solid ground for expulsion Of fickle kids Put our backs on your cold walls We'll never give in Watch us burn ever closer With every spin
