Bloom 04:22
i’ve destroyed a perfect path broken by what i could not forget so i’ll become everything i hate and i will turn forever in my grave if we’re born with the burden of a heart we’ll never mend and we live at the feet of mountains we cannot ascend and we die with regret for what we wouldn’t let begin then i’ll cast my righteous skin and damn what remains until the curse is coursing through my veins and i’ll bloom and breathe, awake to what we’ll never be breed disease to tear apart a memory but i can’t forget to remember desolation isn’t real if there’s nothing left to feel we’re all born bearing the weight of time we all live clamoring to survive and we all die longing to feel alive
3.
you meant to start again without a single shred of doubt and offer a fix you knew was fleeting the failure in you repeating you brought upon the end in faith you’d never be the same but you can’t erase yourself in silence and still be awakened by it don’t cry when everything that you love falls apart and all you had is gone tell yourself to let go of what you can’t control and all of this time you said you wouldn’t yearn for a life you know you shouldn’t but all that you’ve ever known is breaking because of the reason you’ve forsaken don’t cry when everything that you love falls apart and all you had is gone all we had is a lie, come to find out
4.
Not My Blood 05:55
here’s my chance to break contract, to exist without the lie that we’ll live to be something more than feeling deep inside but i’m worth only numbers for the bearing of your pride and i only live to be alive, i only live to be alive you don’t know a god damn thing about me but you still tear out my heart like you know that everything i have within me is just waiting to start again here we will conform to all the faults of the past where you reap what we sow and our ideas aren’t ours to have someday you’ll get what we deserve the profit you had never earned will be the deficit you cannot comprehend and as you rake in your return we’ll loathe the lesson never learned that bottom lines won’t ever satisfy demand for what could have been
5.
i once dreamt that happiness was written in us all and every line was beautiful and infinite withal now i’m bound with emptiness that no one else could know and all my words are stolen like the life i led before and every piece of me is scribbled on a note that no one cared to read sentenced to be free of any meaning and i can only come to be on pages torn from me long before they’re worn and i’ll die before i’m born
6.
i remember thinking how this medicine would be the thing that would save you and now i’m finding out it’s never bringing back the person i once knew so will you look inside and see the life they’ve buried deep in your conscience and learn they couldn’t hide the will to be the everything for yourself that you’ve been to me you won’t cut deep enough to scar the person you are and who you are is more than voices in your head are drowning out and here you are again, the same existence flawed by what you could not be and i have never been so terrified of losing someone i love to their own disease but i can’t be the one who can save you from yourself don’t you break your heart, i don’t want to see you grind your pulse to a halt you can’t come this far just to never know if this was ever your fault, because it never was you won’t cut deep enough to scar the person you are and who you are is more than voices in your head are drowning out
7.
i don’t know who you are or how you live with this and now only sleep will bring you back to me again just like everyone who sins you’re just buying time before the end begins i don’t know who i am or how i live this lie and not even sleep can bring me back to you this time because it’s all i’ve ever been i’m just getting by before the end begins
8.
darkness let us leave common and quiet without even a mark daylight let us see we’ve already lost it everything we are at each dawn we resign to a setting sun and we sleep through the light when the morning comes because no one held the flame of the curious and we’ve all lost the thing that would save us from ourselves compelled to cast from our minds the remnants left of our kind the day the message was sent when we saw infinity end darkness let us leave common and quiet daylight let us see we’ve already lost it now we sing the song that never came to be the constant hum of meaningless defeat the sound of thought deserting me to die the fading path to ever knowing why a thousand ends with nowhere to begin the pull of death awakening within i am at last the loneliest of them but i won’t repent for what i’ve done and i can’t forget what i’ve become
9.
Born Dead 03:21
we all roam the same aimless road to closure we’ve all been told will burn with the most blinding light that we never could see why we all die longing to feel alive someday we’ll close our eyes with no one to tell goodbye while clung to the faintest of hope we’ll gasp at the end alone i can’t break the hands of time i’ll never take back what was mine we all die longing to feel alive
10.
Marrow 01:50
i’m more alive than i’ve ever been in my whole life knowing why you’ll always leave me dead inside i want the pain of loneliness in me again i want the end, i want to know where i begin so break my pride, i know that it’ll be alright i’m just fine knowing that we’re going to die because all i need is everything to change in me all i need is everything i’ll never be
11.
Low 04:07
i thought i was meant for something more than where i reside in the space between the cracks along the floor and i couldn’t know what i’d become buried deep inside in a place that i’ve never been before i’m losing whatever made me breathe whatever made me feel alive and i’m losing whatever made me dream of anything but fear in my heart i’m losing me in a hole far too deep to let go i am growing my last hope down so low, you can’t know what it’s like to not know what you want anymore i’ve found a home in rain and loam an escape from the flowers we’ve grown on and i’ll explode far before we could know what it’s like to not want anymore i’m losing whatever made me breathe whatever made me feel alive and i’m losing whatever made me dream of anything but fear in my heart and i’m losing whatever i believed would carry me along in the dark i’m losing me down this low you can’t know what it’s like to not know what you want anymore
12.
i was born a well laid path as sure as all the best drawn maps and i pioneered my way while the world around me crumbled and decayed and i'm afraid i am the architect of all that a moment's haste has laid to waste here in the rubble of my regret i'll rebuild again in time every part will be where we will intend from the ruins of a long condemned design i will form the plan to reconstruct this life i will live to be something we’ll rebuild again and this time every part will be where we will intend
