The sight of your painted words sickens me. A self fulfilling misery brings content. You spread defeat like an antidote to try, The only thing you've earned is the right to crawl. I can bring you sadness (if you like?) I can show you pain (on faces) I can leave you with the dead (for a while) And they can ask you why you crawl. Your effort drags behind with broken legs, Crying poverty, pain, anxiety and loss. The boy who cried wolf is laughing just for you, As you try to walk and are simply left to crawl. I feel the sickness rising every time we meet. I see me battering your face with the truth. I can cripple you with sugar coated lies, And finally give you a reason to crawl.
So alone, and so cold. You mourn yourself every day. Still cannot speak, still cannot see. And yet they still scream. Blood runs cold. A gentle sway, the bough breaks. Her hair flows long in the wind. Down will fall cradle and all. And yet you don't scream. Blood runs cold. Left to rot into the earth. A memory that will fade. I can’t recall, it’s all gone black. Did she ever have a name? Her blood runs cold. Bring her home.
Catatonic 08:24
Helpless and alone, In the emptiness of bones. A year has been and gone, Beating a heart that can’t go on. Eyes that stare through the haze, To find a place to call her own. Poison flows through the vein, A deep regret begins to fade. The day takes a hold, An iron grip that breaks the mould. Tears that stain an ageing face, And pave the way; a fall from grace. Searching for strangled hope, Clutching at my throat. Time to mourn for the weak, Leave the wires that tie you down. Silence is killing unsaid words. Ten voices that can’t be heard. I yearn to hear her speak, To say something, so I can breathe. Silence is killing unsaid words. Ten voices that can’t be heard. Listen - I heard her speak, “I miss him. Now let me leave."
