Track Name: Bedrocks
I thought I was over this
But I can't stop thinking about
Your eyes
So sincere
So full of compassion
Staring right into mine like no one has before
It's haunting me
Don't tell me there was nothing
It's killing me
And now I feel like nothing
And I lie here
Destroying myself with these thoughts
And you don't even know
Track Name: Vanish
It's been years since I met you
I pick at my skin
This house of bones that keeps it all in
You don't know where I'm going
But you know where I've been
We've taken too long
And now it's too late to begin again
She said:
"Let me go, I'm on a road to nowhere
And it only leads to being lost"
I'm still alone
But I promised not to save you
Oh god, I think I want to
You couldn't wait forever
When I can't seem to get my life back together
This vanishing act won't last long
I'm having trouble
Trying to stay gone
Stay gone
Stay
Track Name: Ostracize
Denying your false claims of innocence
After I cave in your fucking skull
We all know that you're made up of lies
But let's find out what else you're full of
Cut and slash away your false depression
And all that's left is a need for attention
You're a shallow sick fuck
Who is far past redemption
So say hello to the beast when I send you back home
Scum, lying scum
You're filth
You're garbage
You're exactly what you fear you are
Run, better fucking run
Time won't heal these wounds
And I'll make sure that they'll leave scars
Track Name: Papercuts
Staring into space
The moon is my spotlight
While I replay
The mistakes of what's been done tonight
And who am I now?
Will this be the end?
Time to cast my bow
With that being said
I will break

I'm demoralized
Feeling victimized
Soon to be traumatized
Assured to be utilized
Am I your fucking prize?

I'll make you slit your words into these hands
That held you on the bedrock ground
Your words on paper haunt me
Your words on paper taunt me
They came without a sound
I thought you were a part of me
Now you rip that part of me
Doesn't make much sense to me
When something filled with love and life
Holds everything full of shit and pride

Should I leave without a trace?
Overjoyed that there's no spotlight
While I reflect the mistakes
Over something I'll never make right
I just want to know who I am already
My bones are starting to shake
All are so unsteady
With that being said
I will break

I'm dehumanized
Feeling ostracized
Soon to be crystallized
Even after all this time
Am I your fucking prize?


I'll make you slit your words into these hands
That held you on the bedrock ground
Your words on paper haunt me
Your words on paper taunt me
They came without a sound
I thought you were a part of me
Now you rip that part of me
Doesn't make much sense to me
When something filled with love and life
Holds everything full of shit and pride

There was a spotlight
And a smile on my face
Now it's vanished
The light has left without a trace
I tried to read the letter you wrote me
And the dead wood cut up my hands
Like you, it stings
But won't leave scars
I guess I'll take some comfort in that

This was just a papercut
