So much for existence When your existence is a forced shout Born into a hurricane Pushed until you burn out

I really gotta stop picking fights With the ghosts of my past While I’m rolling with the punches I’m not sure how long I’m gonna last Pour salt on the open wound Love the ones that hurt you, say I really gotta stop picking fights Or I’m gonna regret this Berating Every decision brings a vision of what went wrong Down with rounds to play with KO’d These memories haunting me I’m starting to think it’s my life Flashing before my eyes Every man in a hood is carrying a scythe and creeping In the corner of my eye I really gotta stop picking fights Now the spectres are winning But I’m smiling through the bruises, cuts and blood Laughing and grinning Pour salt on the open wound Love the ones that hurt you, say We are not gonna let it go These memories haunting me I’m starting to think it’s my life Flashing before my eyes Every man in a hood is carrying a scythe and creeping In the corner of my eye

Found a bottle on the beach The message inside wasn’t complete For the time had worn the paper thin “My reflections not… what it used to be…. I’m broken down,….. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy” Drank the ink up of the paper Till the words spilled down my chin From my lips They dripped on to my hands into my skin Felt the rush as the letters tumbled on and on through my veins To my heart And on into my brain Found a bottle on the beach The message inside wasn’t complete For the time had worn the paper thin “My reflections not,…. what it used to be…. I’m broken down,…. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy” The serifs tore at my synapses Till I finally let them in Ancient scripts A war torn city on the brink On the waters edge I faltered Then the waves crashed overhead And in the undertow my journey began As the days fly by The hours stand still The hands of the clock move in for the kill As the days fly by The hours stand still From these broken feathers, we’ll make our wings Found a bottle on the beach The message inside wasn’t complete For the time had worn the paper thin “My reflections not,….what it used to be….. I’m broken down,…. somewhat fallen out with the fantasy”…..

We are the ones who will save you I am the water We are the ones to betray you Drowning in laughter Love this lie Live this lie Clinging on for no good reason Hanging off a memory Clinging on for no good reason When will we let this go? I’m not one to say you’re lowly I’m the one you will hate I’m not one to fade so slowly I’m the one you will hate I’m not one to say I’m sorry I’m the one you will hate I can’t sleep for fear of falling Clinging on for no good reason Hanging off a memory Clinging on for no good reason When will we let this go? I’m not one to say you’re lonely I’m the one you will hate While you live in failed glory I’m the one you will hate I’m not one! I can’t sleep for fear of falling Clinging on for no good reason Hanging off a memory Clinging on for no good reason When will we let this go?

I once tore the world a new asshole A reckless taunted soul These are the songs I Screamed at the world Does it all counts for nothing? All the great songs have been sung But these are the songs I leave to the world This is all for you It has never been more true Timepieces and lock shaped hearts They’re what I leave for you I once tore the world a new asshole Can’t remember why I’m mad at the world As it all crashed down Empty and gnarled I suppose it all counts for something Screaming ‘bout my demons we’ve been here before Time and time again It’s becoming a chore This is all for you It has never been more true Timepieces and lock shaped hearts They’re what I leave for you I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world And scream my lungs into this void This is all for you It has never been more true Timepieces and lock shaped hearts They’re what I leave for you I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world And scream my lungs into this void I’ll stand right here on the edge of the world And wait for you until I’m….
