Second Track. EP Version.

lyrics

These bitter hands can't heal your wounds.
I could taste the razor blade on your lips,
Counting your scars like experience.
But I don't think you were prepared for this,
Finding out now it's harder just to keep your head above the water.
Shake these walls, just like your broken spine,
I'll break your fall.

There's nothing left, nothing left at all.
We built this up just to watch it fall.
Barely keeping sane, it's never been the same,
I never wanted to play this game.
What are these splitting feelings?
Have I done myself in?
It's all the same though, searching, seeking, something greater.

Where are the absolutes that I need just to keep,
These hands from shaking,
These aftershocks, they never cease.

When all that's seen is a means to an end,
Smiles straining, lights fading.
From these eyes that carry such hope for the future.
Your voice that never waivers still offers me,
This handout disguised as mutual love that I seek.
I don't deserve this beauty.

This is a breaking point.

I'll become the beast, come here dance with me,
There's a ballroom lined with the light of the future.
But it's dimming now, God please help us out,
Let the moonlight suspend this moment.

Come inside, though there's nothing to find,
There's plenty things to see, plenty things happening.
Empty spaces never felt so crowded,
Life may be beautiful, but there's no point in waking up if my mind's set on dull thoughts and envy.

When all that's seen is a means to an end,
Smiles straining, lights fading.
From these eyes that carry such hope for the future.
Your voice that never waivers still offers me,
This handout disguised as mutual love that I seek.
I don't deserve this beauty.

When all that's seen is a means to an end, the ground will shake,
Hearts will bend.
When all that's seen is a means to an end, the ground will shake,
Hearts will bend.
Cry to the sun, and watch as your tears forsake you.
