Track Name: Bottom Feeder
Break from the circle, search for the sun. Wade knee deep through discontent waters fed by the rivers of self indulgence and greed. Fade into me.
As the opia fades my face mirrored in yours once at arms length now at home in my bones. Grow more tepid and desperate every day, nostalgia fails, only resentment remains.
The weight of familiarity breaks me, I’d sooner take my chance with wolves.
Selfish by definition though I’ve never done a thing for myself.
Bottom feeder, I am the cloak and dagger, the smoke that clouds your mirrors spews from my mouth.
Break from the circle, search for the sunlight.
Track Name: You'll Always Look the Same to Me
She's home but can't find her heart, she cries in fear of the loss of her art.
I've heard the thoughts and well-wishes, keep the hopes and prayers. Hundreds of strangers come forward, I stand skeptic of these heartfelt affairs. She burns while the bedside flowers wilt, she bleeds as the backs slowly turn. Some people fade faster than they grow, my branches will hold you until your last note. You’ll always look the same.
While Distorted by disease people tend to flee, you’ll always look the same to me. You’re more than a patient, a person not a stat, you stand far from
average we’ve always known that. It may seem discouraging to see others go, they’re not bad people they just fear the road. It will take time to let this sink in, I will stand beside you while things look thin.
The ache will not out last your stride, the wound can not dissuade your fight.
This misery, hardship and grief is not yours alone, life involves pain, you have not been singled out. The good life is not one immune to agony, suffering contributes, you are stronger now. You will not fade faster than you grow, my branches will hold you until your last note.
