I hum to keep my mind straight

But my arms beat like vultures wings in excitement for the kill

I sing to stay alive, but I thrive

When my heart is out of pace, I'm out of control, and my skin is at war with my god damn bones

I despise

All of the rings left under my eyes

I despise

The violent ways with which they waste my life

Time slows

Whenever I let her go

That's why I chose

To pass time away on my own

I said it

But you meant it

Now you're undressed, cold, and alone

You're my tower

Built from bones

Signify all of my wrongs

Because time like love is a tide

I've caught it in stride

And now it's carrying me out to sea

Where both mean nothing to me

I feel the hours pass

As sand falls from my bones

The wind completes its task

And wears me away

I've tried, but this blood letting is wearing me thing

So I willingly give in to nature's sway

No forward motion

The dead in my hands, the dead in my lungs and I grieve

For the ideas of a generation censored by themselves
