Fairweather 02:09
Drag their names through the dirt Just to keep up an image Torn between two bad choices With no positive outcomes I'm losing my cool more often than I used to It's 5am I'm still awake and tired of shitty excuses Put off any discussion With feigned laughs and fake smiles I've never felt this two faced I should have pressed the issue The people I love are selfish, cold and petty And I can't pretend to be any better I will keep my mouth shut While this guilt crushes my lungs Walls will close in Can't fucking cope Holes in the door What else is new
Keystrokes 00:49
The result of weeks alone shows In unfinished sentences and broken vocal chords I'm forgetting things I learned along the way And replacing them with keystrokes and keybindings and maybe I'd be better off If I crushed the keys and learned to talk Rip the cable from my backlit heaven My eyes feel so fucking strained Rip the cable from my 16:9 hell I've forgotten how to speak
Lester Lane 01:14
I still can't bring myself To walk down Lester Lane I still think about you Every single day I felt my head split I felt my mind pour out onto the pavement I just stayed there I just baked in the sun and I did not care I can't collect my thoughts I need you badly but you are not there Your wrinkled hand no longer rests on my shoulder I will let this grief pull me under
Monochrome 01:18
Chasing after ghosts Shadows in my room I see your fucking face In everything I do Emotional triggers Everywhere I go The sweetest songs of birds Sound sour and dull I feel fucking stuck and I don't know what to do
My eyes are swollen and red But completely dried out Breaths come sharply Raspy, forced out We are all fools marching into the unknown The future plays out in the dancing of the fog I said I saw this coming But was blind all along I said I saw this coming But was blind all along It will be drawn out And it will be slow And it will be cold And it will be alone I want you to engrave this as a reminder in the back of your head So you might never have to feel like this A light in the abyss to guide you through these days I'm still on the top of the world searching for what we lost along the way
Your faith Is filling up my lungs To the point where I can hardly breathe I've got your verses filling up my ears Until I can't hear anything I've got your crucifixes in my eyes Rendering me fucking blind I've got your bible bound around my wrists Leaving me totally helpless Empty soul Empty words Pages filled Meaning lost Empty words Empty sky holds nothing for me Leave me be Yes I feel hollow But this is not what I need
The sounds bounce off the walls And reach me again after a slight delay It's a poor replacement for conversation But it gets me through to day I held tight to that bag of feathers It couldn’t hold to me I whispered softly to it But back it could not speak You are no human being I tried to pretend I wasn’t alone But it was blank, faceless, and so fucking cold Just a figment of a lonely brain Of a fragment of a human being
What is wrong? This wall was my canvas and I chose to play god My trap was hidden and you saw nothing at all Now I've got your pain lodged in my throat I chose to play god and I lost Accusing eyes glare from around every corner They know what keeps me up at night The song rang beautiful as it came off the wings I injected my poison and left you to rot What is wrong, what is wrong, what is wrong? I wasn't blind I chose not to see I gave up the chance It wasn't taken from me Happiness when there is sadness Beauty when there are jagged edges Simplicity when there is no reason I was pissing them away but I didn't believe it Your wings don't sing anymore and it keeps me up all night
