lyrics

Vera
We're constantly at war in these ideals
With tongues like knives
Pushed deeper and deeper
Every syllable, a twist of the handle

You decide
just how empty we can make this
I disdain
What a callow excuse for a human being

You decide
Just how exhausting we can make this
I disdain
For good

As I sat and watched the leaves roll by
A tree achromatic and bare
If it lives through winter
I wonder did it every really miss a thing

Goodbye to sleep

Lie to me
Tell me it'll all just be alright

Lie to me
It'll all just be alright

We'll I never felt a feeling like this
And it burns a hole right through my stomach
As I fall asleep

We'll I never felt a feeling like this one
and it's turning my insides to ashes
as I fall asleep

You don't entertain
Failing lines
Negate

I don't instigate
Stealing ground with hate

You've been caught up sick for days
Lord all this punishment
Rings permanent
And I'm through with you


So cunning and cavalier
Even when death is near
It wont mean a thing

JUST GET FUCKING OVER IT

I do love you
But I've got so goddam much to say to you
Just know I will never love again

Vera,
Don't
I'm losing it

Nothing ever shined as bright as it did
From that day forward
I've lived in a memory
A fog
A photo
A simpler time

An idea I've reiterated to myself over and over
Because I'm too afraid to face the demons of the present

Cowardice, an illness
A crippling condition that's plagued me for decades

I stopped sleeping cause I would only end up tired
I stopped eating cause I knew I would only be hungry
I stopped talking cause I was afraid to say something condemning
I stopped drinking cause I knew I would only be thirsty
I Stopped living cause I was afraid of death

As I counted the stairs on the way up
I just couldn't understand

There was time here.........

As I counted the stairs on the way up
I just couldn't understand

Remember the escape

There was time here.........

As I counted the stairs on the way up

I just couldn't understand
