Idol Worship 04:28
meet your idols in worship take this place from my chest why's it so hard to withdraw from this one line the hallways with my short symbols of yearning the too calm goodbye remove my reasons for this one and how come time moves on places change and i'm to blame i'm almost through with it meet your idle hands completely people change and i stay the same i'm almost through with it i should give up i should pack it in destroy your relation cut the thought from the bone how's a vague sort of construct create one might as well toss aside this half handed reverence whose meaning is out kill the context from this one and i'm done cause i can't decide they came in before you and look just how they made out a sequence of false starts and reasons to go to sleep empty those silver tongued sons alone sold me on what i already had and as we get processed we start falling apart it just works that way and i ask myself if i don't mean what i say then why am i still saying it? all we are is bones to be broken
all the answers laid so bare there's nothing left to see of here could they even feign surprise? another one cut down to size i've given up control that's what it's all about making the mountain the mole hill i'd take out this part of myself and throw it away and carve it out of marble to be rearranged if only such a thing were true what will we leave behind? water damaged novel spine and who do we answer to? when we find out there's nothing new all the rhythms laid to rest limbs made out of second best they're drowning in themselves again it's only just means to an end
it's over my head the weight of simply being, instead of every kind of problem we are the lucky ones don't even get me started we are the lucky ones you better believe what you said to me you better believe it's over my friend sinews tied to cross bones we had the funeral in the driveway and the wake out on the lawn easy to take for granted how we are the lucky ones so long I hardly knew you
fight or flight, give and take a touchy subject, and one too late circumnavigate what has past this sorry state will not last he'd never seen a ship so big before it swallowed up the ocean until you could see the floor and oh this brittle body oh this brittle brain, it's sick and since out of a job and thoughts can stick together, like the bottom of a riverbed carves its way out now did you see the warning signs? they were written on the back of your skull until the ink, it ran dry and one foot in and one foot out, i know it's just a child's game i'd take it back if i could
Violet 01:51
down, down circumstantial occupation's over down, down every day's a violet occurrence you'll build your statues higher than the mountains and the trees sooner or later, your life's work is bound to go down that lone old pedestal, we could count the dust off for years we tried to fashion one of our own where the bones couldn't find us, and we couldn't wait to feel down
the way age moves around me is effortless i don't understand it makes me sick so how could this happen so easily to the little ones the way the world works takes its toll on me, on me wings taken off too soon i can't comprehend it makes me ill it even takes the babies out of windows the way the words spit out your teeth like knives thrown at an innocent painted smiles flickered as they turned out the light i don't think you're getting up in the morning look me in the eyes you're just staring at the floor and all we can do is just hope so
No Wonder 03:05
chop down my prospects the only thing i don't regret frustrated flight can take off on empty again i'm sorry if this hits home blank future's a prescription for dark stars and reflection memory is up for slaughter reconnect with heaven's daughter retrace opinion it's only a sign of the times leveling skyline makes me feel alright and i'm sorry if it's not known any world can come apart and dissipate it's really no wonder why letters stacked like a library and it'll burn down much the same way
i'll build a house i'll build a home, i'll build a skyscraper i remember when you said to me i wanna start over i pray to every god that i know that i can keep it together. don't you think you've had enough this time? because everyone is waiting on the better part of the day when we can overwhelm each other. it's senseless in the way that it makes sense, and my mouth is closed again in your new life if you could pick and choose would you choose the same ones you couldn't afford to lose this time around it comes twice a year did you waste the moments is that your biggest fear? i've been over it a hundred times today and it's only as simple as it's going to be, it's only beginning i'm reeling when i'm breaking ground, it's coming together in your new life you celebrated the old one i'm happier on the freeway cause at least i'm going somewhere how was i supposed to act like? i'm not making decisions for the rest of the time this year, it's blending into each other stick your head up for some air, it was like this all along? i noticed how you fell through
your wife will outlive you it's a sad fact but it's true all too much is gone to be of any use we crushed the ashes with sunlight for you, for you, for you we cast it straight upon the rocks it's all that we can do we placed the body down there for you, for you, for you shattered like the rest it's all that we can do morning light is only a sign of where you used to sleep and live we're made of each other's old clothes they've said it before and i'll say it again you're only as much as your body
