WITNESS 04:09
Why can’t you why can’t you hear me believe me why can’t you hear ignorant rhapsody why can’t you  hear me believe me ancient fool on the ground why can’t you  hear me believe me  why can’t you  see? why can’t you  hear me believe me ? cut my hands free smother me  smother me  cut my hands free waves beat my face  blue the tide sinks into my skin burdened and bloated burdened  and bloated  burdened  and bloated witness  my empty  witness  my empty  witness  my empty  witness  my empty  witness my empty pulls me under  why go you believe me too  witness  witness my empty   he pulls  me  under waves  beat  my face  blue the tide  sinks into my skin burdened  and  bloated  witness my empty why can’t you  feel my broken skin  my life  depended on it  why can’t you  hear me believe me  It’s true  what did you do

ROSES 05:12
A cloaked soldier rode he promised me roses but brought me shadow filled with pain he promised me roses brought me shadows shadows filled with pain it's an old tale about when your body won't leave the ground you run with me you burn me a soldier rode what a big mistake run with me burn with me I don’t mind when your gonna take me I burn what a big mistake blistering sun I want nothing filled in my life you won’t cross my mind a cloaked soldier rode he promised me roses but brought me

LIVIDITY 05:18
Sunlight shines upon their faces smile and take their hands didn’t take her flowers out of her hands she raised her heart the boy began to scream six feet under your head on me raised heart grazed he bled her face one last time for me to see keeps coming back for more turn the other way tightest ropes laid across my feet leaving my body for men to beat eternal liar lie love wise eyes are now a fool leave me blind leave me drifting this body is not yours head on me why can’t I refuse your soft but angry hands and an angry heart over and over and over and over over and over and over it’s over over his evil eruptions cleanse my spirit his evil eruptions cleanse my spirit this body is not yours to keep disable me this body is not yours to rape disable me head on me why can’t I refuse tightest ropes laid across my feet leaving my body for men to beat

Hail the sirens that bring your ships down you can’t defeat me even when you wear that crown hail hail the sirens hail the sirens just a mortal you cannot pass what your faith is I won’t ask what your faith is I won’t ask look in my eyes I’m not lying when I say it’s better down here drown with me drown drown with me

FALSE MARTYR 04:14
My fallen lover was killed by his own sword kept drinking his poison leaving me nothing to fill the void my fallen lover killed sword follow blind forces while the snakes bite your feet your flesh tastes funny to the ones who live you dine with them follow blind forces while the snakes bite your feet you lie with them I know you all well lying with what you did follow blind forces while snakes bite your feet you lie with them follow blind forces while snakes bite at your feet why force it I know we I know we die for the first time in the bearer or light bearer of light bearer of light

THE PACK 03:59
But first light, unravel me into darkness’ arms let me be the one embrace him first embrace him first embrace him first I do hurt for I have settled your arms are there comfort and calming darkness’ arms struggle to keep secure she reached for me instead of you instead of you instead of you as she passed I slowly let her go she reached for me instead of you go go go can we reflect on anger he bites me crimson eyes hi misery I’m knocking at the door are you home could you bear another burden we knew we had to goodbye running into arms like the night you came back we are disappointing running like a wounded pack you came back like the dogs running like a wounded pack to me

VERNAL 03:46
This morning I woke up and felt beautiful my hair was falling like a slow rain like a slow rain like a slow rain that felt like a stretch of sweat bleeding off the grass wet on my ankles sharp like honey, here sharp like honey the dim smell of light here life is here and I choose forward life is here and I choose forward weave your web and keep it strong weave your web and keep it strong I felt so much power today the way you looked at me sunshine you had a sunshine one more day you had a sunshine one more day that sparked here the flowers purple and green am I dreaming life is here and I choose forward life is here and I choose forward weave your web and keep it strong

ESCHATON 04:19
The end  of you  of me  the buildup of yellow around my eyes  has become part of  what survived  strapped down waiting  for me spread out  waiting for evil I can feel you  wrapped around me tight  release me to  my dream falling asleep  almost feels like death  you’ve taken parts of me  are you still here ?  more than a ghost  she aches you slap the anger out of me  I can feel you  wrapped around my life  hold on  release me our world crumbling  these pieces never fit  you take so much for granted  you chew up and spit on me  like I’m some sort of bitch  you crush your own chaining the ones you love Hey it’s me I’m going there there’s no hate in here  Just an endless cord  leading to the floor There trapped is my brain  There is no cure For my pain Secrets kept  From my life  So I don’t hurt anyone  Do you remember me? We used to live here ? And the walls begged our names  Let go of pain  Let go of pain  let it go Lending my arm  Lending me harm  Pain is ending soon say goodbye  say goodbye say goodbye  goodbye falling  asleep  almost feels like death  let me go on my own  turn it off  it crawls out of me let me sleep  on my own
