As simple as it sounds it's getting harder by the second
Keeping you inside my web my grasp is slowly slipping
All the days that pass us by are slowly dying with us
Never saw this coming in a million years until it hit us

I pry open my lids and walls start to close in around me
Sorry I don't understand the point of being lonely
Carrying the weight of your mistakes upon my shoulders
Crying out at night for fear I might slip further under -

Neath the hypnosis that I planned for you I know
Timid eyes only mask little bits of the truth I hear
Harrowing howls from a reverb drenched room
That I locked from the outside to be close to you

Oh, how I'd die for a love that I could call true

If everyone I know decides to distance themselves further
from me than they have already I don't know if I would
Notice any difference at this point I swear that I don't
Even know my family in the way I long to know you

Heavy on my heart weighs what was once nothing I'd even
notice I could see it clear as day I wanted little
more than peace of mind to bind my being to the cosmos
Can't you feel the energy infecting all that is around us

shaking themselves to make our presence felt
Violent forces vibrating so low I could tell they were
Acting on instinct, when they climbed from the well
Where the wishes of lovers and liars had fell

To their resting place, final
Wasted days

Instantly I felt it creep up on me, woke me from my
Slumber, in the middle of the night I rolled right over
You were gone I couldn't understand why my heart felt so
hollow Suddenly the things I’ve always known I'm not so

sure of swallow down and harbor for a lifetime not even
an hour Senses fail me daily but this time I think I’ve
gone and done it Now I know I’ll be alone forever

Never felt this way before today I lived alone
before you I was always fine I loved myself and all of
those around me but all that I can see is crumbling
Heaven knows I’d sell my soul off piece by piece to find you breathing

Even if it means that I will be the flesh you sink your
teeth in when you’re hungry I will be the meal that feeds you
Words are only weapons when you use them without pure in -
tensions, Dialect encrypts the words that rearranged to form a message
