lyrics

despondent
a slipstream moon cropped from your heart
that's soon forgotten
an open wound still pulled apart
that's sewn wide open
with a distance forged throughout the years
its all begotten

you enlist yourself unto your fears

deception suits you well

I never walked away from what I couldn't fix
I just told myself I'm over it
but I'm transfixed by every lie
my attempts to justify the things I haven't been
the life withheld I had to give
And yours, an artifice you've hatched
A next attempt unmatched, its still your calling card
Don't let us down, you've come this far

I know.

With all your bridges burned, and far too late you've learned-
It's a long way down

An echo, a backwards dream calls from the dark
I heard an ocean, a vast expanse that owns my heart
In all my searching a turquoise hue splinters the void

It's all begotten,
But I hear you still through all the noise

It's in the secrets you avoid
I said I never walked away from what I couldn't fix
I just told myself I'm over it
But I'm transfixed by every lie
My attempts to justify the things I haven't been
The life withheld that I had to give
And yours, an artifice you've hatched
A next attempt, unmatched is still your calling card
Don't let us down, you've come this far

I know.
