let them lay their hands on our portioned out eternity it's deeper in the middle where opinions drift and fall away where you don't flaunt where you don't seek without a purpose who burned the world silence the guise of a tormentor so far from the rubble i think we can start over blue ticket

it all looks better smaller different in the distance does it really get better somewhere outside of answers constant spacing an error changing my scales to deal with clouds enduring the right kind, a simple contest which one are you? why does it matter? and truth at any cost - a secret impulse the choice is mine, renew this illusion please just stand by please just stand by changing my scales to deal with clouds (breaking restructure reclaiming enclosure) enduring the right kind, a simple contest (breaking restructure reclaiming enclosure) which one are you? why does it matter? (breaking restructure reclaiming enclosure) the truth at any cost - a secret impulse (breaking restructure reclaiming enclosure) somewhere in the wrong direction

This equation all ready for calculation No need for extraneous variables But the solution is all wrong. A step was disregarded for ease You may have failed your course But you got your photo op. Any attempts to correct the work are either Ignored or waved off with a belittling politeness. You may have failed your course. But you still got your photo op. It only cost your empathy. -Cheers.

A future snuffed out Before it had time to ignite Signed promises Tossed upon the gas flare This land will soon flood I hope it takes you all with it You crypto-facist fucks Nothing would give me more pleasure Than to see you beg for air Leave them bloated, sinking to the bottom Drag them under Take what they stole

Stave from all words (you breathe just like) You Stave from all words (you speak just like) You Stave from all words (you stare just like) Just stare like someone’s watching (you breathe just like) do they see me like I see them (you speak just like) you care just like you don't you don't concrete means unfold as this chapters ending your deaf intentions an alcove in there no meaning. you turn the knife quick on these battered arms I'd never hurt you what is this worth? what is this worth? the MRIs back I've made my bed the blueprints dotted you erase first why do you erase first? gently persuaded by isolation self effacing to tethered ends disappointment in details beseeched from one end vague reminders there's no one left there's nothing left I imagine a day in a white am I beside, or aside ? —in the closet a dress hangs like a skeleton, too spineless — to come out recount the words (never a straight shot) what was I worth (murmur you honesty under your breath) a disappointment and a placeholder a disappointment and a placeholder tired and vain attempts and I am exiled they rely on you as you try to maintain your image tired and vain attempts and we are exiled Intentions corrosive, we splinter under pressure my back is against the beams and the window breaks I retract the hand that holds this up I retract the hand that holds this up just to see if you'll save yourself you just save yourself as it falls save yourself and it falls on me it falls on me backbreaking, it falls it falls it falls vague reminders there's nothing your image pirouettes in all photographs vague reminders there's no one left hold them in judgement, as battered backs turn words dance desperate day in white words dance desperate day in white words dance desperate hands intertwined words dance desperate, murmured I retract the hand that holds this up (save yourself) I retract the hand that holds this up (as it falls, it falls) I retract the hand that holds this up (save yourself) I retract the hand that holds this up (as it falls) and it falls on me.

drifting snow blinded eyes pained to see this interception falling countlessly there is nothing watch it accumulate and melt away anxiety's grip closes see how these fears take flight whatever once was was lost and never found again in not a difference of opinion but trust melting away no breath left to hold no reason to think that this would be any different so cold miss the warmth bathe me in flame make me feel this once more so i can let go
7.
exhausted worry narrates the soundtrack of fan blades choose an ending painted darkness and thoughts and lost hopes choose an ending
8.
inch forward in pain closer to life closer to death hold onto this pain afraid of this life and closer to death seek out / hear these voices reach out / follow them down head down the road to nowhere seek out / nothing has changed it's still the same it all remains broken and shattered drown in the insignificance of these ideals and paralyzed by the dent you never made nothing has changed / a flash in the fire / too much to behold
