I've come to blows with everything I would stay for

All of the tension inside my bones, I'm ready to let it go

I speak too sober for my generation to hear a word I say

How do I cope with what they're working towards?

Spending hours soaked in bile from their own decay

How do I grow when all their are laced with gold?

I've come to blows with hopelessly waiting here for

All of the anger inside my gut to finally take control

Turning me over

Daunting, it makes its way towards

All of the virtue inside my heart

Forcing me to let it go


I speak to sober for my generation to hear a word I say

But I won't roll over

I'll tear away at the skin until their paths are frayed

Creating new ways to shake the diffidence from my tongue

Creating new paths for me to disseminate the rest of my blood

Enough is enough

I'll stand here and salvage what's left

I'll carry the stones and wayward bones to try and build my life anew,

But I'll never find my heart among the chaff leftover from my past

Such a daunting realization cast in so few words

Too few to keep them running through my mind

The wires won't align and permanence won't be assigned to any of my thoughts

They are fleeting with my eyes towards home
