1.
i can taste unraveling in your eyes like weed smoke you pour from my lips and dissolve into nothingness dissolve to nothing parasitic patriotic master of manipulation the bells of death thank you for fueling their chime while the masses radiate desolation on the tip of my tongue your eyes are the last look i’ll ever take perfect vision through broken frames of fractured light
2.
if i didn’t have bad luck i’d have no luck at all just don’t really give a fuck it’s the luck of the draw ...contaminate the whole world ...intoxicate it’s last call crushing planets silently extinguishing all life final moment final breath
3.
all hope is abandoned there’s nothing left to believe in anything/(everything) you leave behind will haunt the space you own in me you will never be alone it’s looking like the end is near/(here) ...the cows are coming home ...my breath/(mind) is not my own (2x) were we ever really ready? praying or just waiting for the end all hope is abandoned there’s nothing left to believe in
4.
i see you standing at the foot of my bed waiting for the chance to take me my ghosts are getting louder - i can’t hear you the weight of the chains on my ankles are pulling me down i cant stand or smile as you walk by screaming “i haven’t done my all - i have to see this through” never had a true home - no where to lay my head - watched love come and go giving up what is thought to be normal life the show must go on - from bright lights to pitch black i stand alone
5.
it’s stacked against us. it’s meant to rule us. every day, a struggle to feed every day, a stone sharpens the blade my hands torn apart my will forged in this fire your hands drenched in blood your will, your will this will destroy this will destroy run for your lives don’t you ever let it go don’t you ever let it go better let go better let go we’re on our own we’re on our own we may never make sense to them we may never get the best of us it’ll never make sense to us they will never get the best of us no they’ll never and they’ll never no they’ll never and they’ll never get the best of us
