lyrics

you wear your shield of crust
face creased with years of rust

ribcage filled with cement
two decades of resentment
bit my tongue
choked on blood
a mess no one mopped up

hard not to scream
when steel wool
is your blindfold
and you can't find what's hidden

no one said you had to stay
crippling fear of solitude
squalling bastard in your way
three isn't company

I won't reconcile
or show my throat
part of the curse
you proffered me

am I a blister on your heel?
or a limp you can't hide?
or a vessel for your vitriol?
a cup that runneth over

this isn't what you want
but time's not on our side
where do you think you'll go when you die?

I'll chew on glass
I can't swallow my pride

walk through the door
I'll leave through a window
I should see someone
but that means learning where I went wrong

it kills me too.
it kills me more than it kills you.

when half of me is you what part of me is left to trust?

I'm imprisoned by your name
and your generosity

olive branches burn on the pyre
for every inch you'd always raze a mile
one step forward
two steps back
falling swiftly to snap my neck
