Track Name: Lovely Pain
I'm living for the lovely pain
Bitter failures, deep desire
the only kindling that stokes the fire
I only learn from the scar and the burn
But I’m running out of skin to lose
Bitter failures, shallow graves
Only torment keeps me sane
Hitting the curve
Going way too fast
Just to feel the thrill
Of wheels off the track
Powered By agony
Pain and pleasure start to blend
Ripping flesh, jesus wept
Reliving failure again and again
Constant heartbreak keeps me fed
Powered by agony
Living for the lovely pain
Track Name: Clocks
Ticking away,
The clocks are faster, the tempo has changed
And when you count, It’s excruciating
How living starts to feel much more like waiting
When I bleed, sand hemorrhages from me
All I see, an hourglass half empty
Seconds turn into minutes, to hours, to days of my life
Weeks then blend to months into years into decades gone by
When does the clock strikes midnight?
Its hard to sleep
When you audit the hours its syphoning
And when once you notice, you do the math
How many minutes do you really have?
When I bleed, sand hemorrhages from me
All I see, an hourglass half fuckin empty
When I close my eyes
is when the clock strikes midnight
Seconds turn into minutes, to hours, to days of my life
When does the clock strike midnight?
Track Name: Weighing You Down
The stars are elusive
Through the water’s glass
Translucent turns opaque
Blackout approaches fast
I am the chain around your legs
Keeping you from surfacing
Weighing you down
The sun teases freedom
Its rays distract the dead
Fresh lungs rendered useless
How long can you hold your fucking breath
I am not the key, I can’t break the lock
I am a steel chain and cinder-block
(Weighing you down)
I’m not the key, can’t break the lock
I’m a steel chain and cinder-block
I am the chain around your legs
Keeping you from surfacing
Weighing you down
