lyrics

“I choke back our undistinguished blame
like the swelling rivers we ignore
And flood everything behind my tongue in guilt
I hold back our conscious callowness
like the darkening clouds overhead
And shower my conscience with sleepless nights

Leaving the memories like drowned trees stabbing the surface

I've built a dam not meant to last,
A barricade of false promises
Prolonged states of “Just one more day”

I'm slipping,
scrambling, filling the leaks as they spring with fallen branches and discarded pieces of me

Let the enmity sink
down to join our, broken lines and stolen bait, drowning whatever fault I've failed to overcome

It's me that's
fractured the frame, splintered and shattered each column past any semblance of stability


Casting in cursed thoughts like the tangled nets that strip life from your generous smile
This cluttered construct is crumbling against a constant flow of insult and injury

It can't halt the tide

Disquiet is a plague that's spread hinges on my ability to forget
But I have already let the ax fall

And the barrier is coming down with each swing
I've kept this valley barren for too long

The flood will wipe it all away

The anchors drag the bed, desperate to find hold amongst our sunken ideals
Despite the depth, the notion still stands somewhere beneath this lake

I awake to sleep-shivers,
a thousand leagues below where you stand
I won't ever see the ceiling again”
