Breathing In My Words
Let me make your lungs burn
With the fire and the smoke
Feel the wrath of the temperature
Bring your heart back up to choke
Let me make your lungs burn
With the cigarettes and the dirt
Taste the wrath of this vindication
Bring your heart back up to hurt.
The Shadow Of Who I Was
It doesn’t make sense to haunt me
If all the ghosts are still sleeping
But I’ll be your rough concrete grave
Don’t close your eyes while I’m dreaming
Your disappearing act is getting subtle
Static song whispering to the radio
I don’t ever want to see your head ache
But I have to dissect it to see what you know.
Time, Like The Lines Are Red In Between
I’ll sink into the tangled web you weave
Find safety in the voice that sinks ships
Drowning’s a mercy than to watch you leave
And arrogance will make me cold and sick
I will be nothing without the skyless sea
But you’re next to nothing to ever envy me
And come this morning when I take the abyss
The tidal waves behind you won’t ever miss.
The world is a red and green apple
Filled with filthy fat worms that feed
Devouring through the very core
Biting through the poisonous seeds
Their disgusting corruption rotting the fruit
Putrid lies turning white to brown in between
Skinny worms in ties, obese worms in suits
The world is an apple; green as greed, red as sin.
Holes in the bloody flag that’s weakly flapping
Tattered with bullet shots loudly ringing
From the guns of the new revolution
From the screams of the freedom unborn
The justice system also had huge holes marked on it
And everyone can no longer endure this deficit
And they hope one day innocents will not receive endless death rows
And the guilty will not be awarded with thrones and golden bows.
Little black spider, in the middle of the web
Do you have power and greed in your head?
Dare you play with the connected strings of fate?
Strum the fragile threads a bit too violently, you simply cannot wait
Until it falls apart and falls to the ground in a ruinous state
And drags you along with destruction that you brought with your hate.
Locked doors were everywhere, and you had the key
The key to huge power, the key to utter success
You unlocked everything from the lands and the seas
Recklessly leaving doors open in a whirlwind of mess
You unlocked people’s minds, but there’s one thing you forgot
In your haste you forgot to unlock your very soul and heart.
Jigsaw puzzles, doesn’t society just love them
A million pieces of scattered shapes, ready to be built into a system
And people do seem to want to fit into the big picture
Changing everything from their looks, their emotions, their features
But these naive people never knew the truth, no one had the sense nor heart
To tell them that the jigsaw puzzle was never complete from the start.
