Track Name: Failings for Friends
“Failings for Friends”

Her pain doesn’t make her special
Just useless
This is not a sickness
It’s a choice

When inspiration hits, with both hands grab hold
And rend and twist

These failings her only companions

She doesn’t even bother to cover her scars
And I wish that I was that strong
Sweating out the drugs
They say everything takes time

She breaks her down, and down, and down
Track Name: Kill the Pills...
“Kill The Pills…”

Hope is the aphrodisiac of the fool
Her lecherous hate preys upon her hurt

The possibilities so perfect before she speaks those words
Before she slits her throat
Scribbling sorrys with the hate that drains out
This push-pull turned to shove
Kill the pills with pain, she tears through the white
And she trembles at my touch and she dies in those arms

She dies in those arms [In those arms, lying next to her]

Sleeve, heart, stapled shut, she always gets it wrong

Hate, hurt, want, need, shame cut with white, mixed with bourbon, lost in perdition

Bitter not Better, she is, bitter not better

Hate, hurt, want, need, shame cut with white, mixed with bourbon, lost in perdition

She takes these pills to pass the time, robbing her of her hope but still she hates
These hands stunt her ascension, pull her down to a place she thought she could leave
But never will, she thought she could leave but never will [tearing through perdition]
Track Name: In Desperation We Reach
“In Desperation We Reach”

Scrub the scent from her skin
Her personal apocalypse
One glimpse of perfection
Reduced to all her failings

She can’t be anything

A moment of truth crushed under its weight

Scrub the scent from her skin

The only heart she has broken is her own

In her kiss beware the taste of lies, I can recall a touch of suicide
And she said, “In desperation we reach”
In those arms that is where I died and on her kiss, a taste of suicide
And she said, “In desperation we stumble”

We stumble, we fall

And she said, she said to me…
She needs better but I am just worse

“Wounds Worn as Badges”

Skin rubbed raw, drenched in hate, there’s a lack of poetry in her prose
This hate never healed, the absence burns her throat, chokes the words

Loathe the day she’s drowning on the thoughts she can’t speak to her
Wounds worn as badges turned to weights
Such beauty only rapes

These are the nights without end, she would say she’s suffered but it has yet to begin

Drained of empathy, she feels nothing

Lie to me

We make time or make excuses still the blame slips away
This Northern hostility, her only gift to give
Past their prime but still were swallowed, she doesn’t want to be saved
In her hair a lifeless flower, in her shattered heart…

Love left to rot

The sight would rend hearts, if she could see what she has become
If she could
Track Name: Wounds Worn as Badges
“Wounds Worn as Badges”

Skin rubbed raw, drenched in hate, there’s a lack of poetry in her prose
This hate never healed, the absence burns her throat, chokes the words

Loathe the day she’s drowning on the thoughts she can’t speak to her
Wounds worn as badges turned to weights
Such beauty only rapes

These are the nights without end, she would say she’s suffered but it has yet to begin

Drained of empathy, she feels nothing

Lie to me

We make time or make excuses still the blame slips away
This Northern hostility, her only gift to give
Past their prime but still were swallowed, she doesn’t want to be saved
In her hair a lifeless flower, in her shattered heart…

Love left to rot

The sight would rend hearts, if she could see what she has become
If she could
Track Name: Broken Not Breaking
“Broken Not Breaking”

It’s in the ether, where her last chance for salvation went
Unsaid, unheard, like tears in the rain
She looks the part but can’t stand the reflection
Secrets fight their keeping, her hate blackened sun

She cried a river then drowned, washed away hope

Cry

She cried a river then drowned, washed away hope

Hope slips away, lost to dull grey, she doesn’t know how to be whole
Broken not breaking, she’s broke

She was warned but still she fell
Secrets fight their keeping, they desire…

She was warned but still she fell
She was warned
