lyrics

Excuse me for a moment while I clear the room
I'm so sorry, I never meant to break the silence
But it's time to tell me how my words become my tomb
And go drink your prayers from the silver spoon

Let's end the distraction of our blackened feud
My fear is the depth of your sanity
A wilted blossom like the one I gave you far too soon
My friend, once again I've sheltered your cocoon

Barbs in our flesh, tearing through our skin
These concepts in our minds, these splinters in our eyes
For a fraction of a second I am here alone
Searching for and end and only finding new beginnings

Why still do you break away from sanity?
We already have to many broken minds
I wish you would learn sometime to keep your fucking mouth shut
Shut the fuck up, just shut the fuck up

What you really are was hiding in my sight
(Our guilty pleasures kept in check lest they define ourselves)
Soon you'll wish me here, bathing in the light
How many times do I have to fight? Don't make me admit that my conscience was right

Barbs in our flesh, tearing through our skin
These concepts in our minds, these splinters in our eyes
For a fraction of a second I am here alone
Searching for and end and only finding new beginnings
