lyrics

Forever searched for a purpose
With time so pointless
Well give me something to believe
So I have some control
Cut in at all the right times
Just to watch me pour out slow
Watch this blood dry to your scribe
And you’ll see how much I’m worth

Crawl from start again my friend
Show me where I might lean in
I can piece together any ends
If you’ll suffer for his sins

A whisper in my ear
He knew I’d come here
Now just take me away
Denial cloaked in your name
Let lie where she falls
A face you can’t recall
Wash me up on your shore
Still rotting to the core

Promise if I take you in
Let him start new again

A shadow of my failing lies
Keep true if it’s what you see
But “never was” and “has beens”
Are mislabeled commodities
Eyes with devious movements
Disarm your arrogance
But let me save it for the end
When photos are the foe

With nothing left to salvage
Let me be the one that can save
Say those words I want to hear
You will go together to your grave

Hearts lead a guiltless crime
Die together this time
Eyes of your haunting face
See your trust is misplaced

You can only be betrayed
By those in truth you mislayed
Take in this cleansing of sins
Now you're truly condemned

Your innocence rebuilt
Truths buried with my guilt
Take in one final breath
I will smile for you in death

A whisper in my ear
He knew I’d come here
But if you'll take me away
I'll cloak denial in your name

He whispered in my ear
There's no way from here
No chance to take me away
Denial cloaked in your name
Let lies where he falls
A face you can’t recall
No semblance of a shore
Still rotting to the core

Now that I took you in
We can start new again
