Heartbeat starts to fade The rise in the chest falls away Heartbeat starts to fade The rise in the chest falls away All sound left the room Made way for her thunderous howl She screams I’m going to take my boy home I’m going to take my boy home I’m going to take my boy home Today Never told to worry Believed their progeny would achieve More than they ever have During the short stay Here in the universe They weren’t prepared to say goodbye As soon as they said hello As soon as they said hello They weren’t prepared to say goodbye As soon as they said hello As soon as they said hello Heart beat starts to fade The rise in the chest falls away All sound left the room Made way for her thunderous howl

Be OK 03:21
We’ve finally received An abundance of clinical words Which can only be translated To mean [Nothing is static now] These days I find myself Noticing everything mundane I think its to help me distract myself [From all those words they said] Survivor, everything will be just fine Survivor, unfortunately my words mean nothing [Nothing is static now] [Nothing is static now] Cartoon beasts A cashier’s smile A dog at his feet [Their joy is alien] Return to you I beg and plead To come with me [But you are already gone] How to start tomorrow? I’ll have to tell myself [All of the words I said] Survivor, everything will be just fine Survivor, everything will be just fine Survivor, everything will be just fine Survivor, everything will be ok Be OK Be OK Be OK OK Be OK [I’ll just lie to myself] [I’ll just lie to myself] Be OK [I’ll just lie to myself] [I’ll just lie to myself] Be OK

I’ve been searching for the answers Buried within these texts Hoping their instructions will free me From the grief And despondency I’ve given up on hope Given up on hope alone Is there some spell I can cast Concoction to make What does it take? Cause I’m in search of something To take me away A flicker of lights, a book jumping off the wall Is it so small? How could I fix everything? No I couldn’t fix anything, The room’s filled with smoke, a handful of sage burning Will it all last? Whatever it is that I’ve done? Is there some spell I can cast Concoction to make What does it take? Cause I’m in search of something To take me away Is there some spell I can cast Concoction to make Or all they all fake? Cause I’m in need of something To take me away One misplaced word The wrong intention (in my heart) We all make mistakes For love or to spite it My casualty You’ll pay the price (for my grief) In my search for healing With hate I cursed another, One misplaced word The wrong intention (in my heart) we all make mistakes For love or to spite it

Your scent will hit me in crowds And I can still remember the way you taste And I've had too much to drink and it's hard to resist your calls. They say you’re no good for me But I'll be the judge of my enemies They say you’re no good for me But I'll be the judge of my friends Even though I know You’ll be the death of me It’s hard to put you down They say you’re no good for me But I'll be the judge of my enemies They say you’re no good for me But I'll be the judge of my friends

They Know 03:02
Here they lay side-by-side cigarettes glow in the twilight Circling smoke Thickens circled thoughts She replays the night in her head Louder tones, Higher pulse He knows, he knows He knows, he knows Now they try to enjoy this time But it came at a price It feels like a crime Louder moans, quicker breath They know, they know, they know They know, they know, they know All your light I store inside So I can Find peace at night Sleep at night

Ever Again 04:33
You've gotten pretty good at withholding the truth And restricting your feelings It feels like you’re wasting your youth Crushed by the guilt of your heart beating You’ll needn’t worry about any of those things ever again At least with me At least with me Pressing overwhelming expectations Heeding my every beck and call Now you're deflecting attention from these situations The shudder in your voice says it all You’ll needn’t worry about any of those things ever again
