Track Name: Ghost
In passing, I'll see you
and you'll see
the ghost of who I was
I'm shaking my sickly
frame under sheets of someone else
and it's desperate and it's violent,
but it's something that I'm used to
I'm frightened
and I'm hiding
from you
and people that we knew//


I'm on my way out//

I'll carry
my own torch
and drop it
burn myself alive
cause in my darkest hours/
I'll release my light
this riptide
this current
I'll swim
against until I'm dead
but I won't float
and I can't sink
'cause I won't
get off that easy//

I'm on my way out//

I'm not really here/
I'm just refracted light/
I'm the shadow in the water over everything/
you're a lucid dream/
you're a smoking gun/
a year of waiting and I'm still not hearing anything/
if I had a choice/
if I could see through you/
I'd let my darkness slip away and sing and bring in my light//

Fuck.

I'm on my way out
Track Name: Decathect
You were the son
and you were
the night
and I've read your book
over and over
my youth
was apropos//

I tried
so hard
is redemption on it's way?
our burdens beared
I can see it in your teeth
you keep running
all these years
and nothings gonna change
and nothings gonna change//

I can't
explain
how much
it hurt
or how disappointed I was//

I tried
so hard
is redemption on it's way?
our burdens beared
I can see it in your teeth
you keep running
all these years
and nothings gonna change
and nothings gonna change//

I'm not pure
in the eyes of the Lord
but what do I need His
advice for?
Oh,
I prey
I don't pray
and I tried to reach you
but it was fiction in disguise//

I can't
explain
how much
it hurt
or how disappointed I was
Track Name: 63
Hold on to yourself
as long as you can
'cause once it's gone
it's gone for good
is this what you thought your life would be like?
21
on the edge//

I want a vice
I want a shield
I want discretion
in my life
in my actions and decisions
applaud my unveiling
or stand aside
and watch me hang//

All I want
is a moment of some
brevity and clarity and understanding
but it's not due
and I can try
to fight reality
the reality that I'm alone
and yeah they lied
but the darkness
isn't getting me
anywhere//

I've watched my dad decay
calling into a hotline
is this what he thought his life would be like?
41
on the edge//

All I want
is a moment of some
brevity and clarity and understanding
but it's not due
and I can try to fight reality
the reality that I'm alone
and yeah they lied
but the darkness
isn't getting me
anywhere//

ALL
I
WANT//
ALL
I
WANT//
