Beg, stave; burning alive Enter to the final chapter; End the lines of a rotting tome Root elation, floral torture Siphon ink to paint a picture I hope the work will satisfy Friction with the jester’s portion Scratching from the fucking bottom Still searching for the answers to the questions I should never have to ask Vile ebb in a tide of anguish “We all knew it wouldn’t last” No longer waiting for my chance to die...
Good For You 01:11
You watched me sleep in silence A lesson in conduct I tried to do things your way, see how it turned out “You’re thinking backwards” Rapid synapse over-fire Bloodline pulsing streams of daggers; One for life I was forced to lead Two for the version they chose to believe Blood for the cycle I was promised would end Tears for the pain that it happened again Cold, long years between solution and me Well you’re not the first, but you’ll be the last “...I remember nights of violence, and I remember years despondent; shaking inside those frigid halls. A scared, helpless kid; I have to know, was I worth your price? ‘Cause I can still taste the chemicals, and I barely fucking recovered...” Looks like you made it. Good for you.
Scratching, clawing Writhing, pleading Wrap myself in ointment just to quell the fucking bleeding Pulsing under panic, burning under light Raise my upper lip just to bare my teeth Balance slipping, record skipping Trepidation in the red, static levels clipping Vision in multiples, earth around me quaking Slam my head against the wall to cut the time of waiting Raise my upper lip just to bare my teeth; Unrequited war, in the hands of the cosmic leash I wouldn’t cross a man who claims to talk to God I’m either crazy or I’m right See truth unfold with the twist of a knife
Their World 01:03
“Fall into the void” I know my place, the only constant; Suffer the endless distance between my world and theirs. Fucking cut off again I’ve come to know, my only solace; Suffer (I know my portion, so) burn their world, burn it to the ground It's such a sick feeling to figure it out Nearly three decades vanished I’m no stranger to isolation, my whole existence is contrast So there’s your apology
