Track Name: Six Feet & Twenty Leagues
chasing the lights
breathe easily, that is, if you can muster up the push and the pull in your dirty lungs. These dreams, void of purpose, oh! so cancerous, tumours of passionless pursuits; they block the life from entering your frail bones
the lights,ever blinking and never wandering from a point you cannot see, you will not see. we were never meant to make it there.
lights, lights, ever blinking and never wandering from a point you cannot see, you will not see. we were never meant to make it there.
for where your treasure is your heart will be also, and your treasure is buried at the bottom of the sea
where your treasure is your heart will be also, and your heart is sinking.
no! this is a crime of purpose that you scream with shrinking pupils that you did not commit.
but oh! i know you did! and he knows you did! and she knows you did! you got all that you could. you got all you could.
smile and bear the weight of all that you snatched up. bind your empty pack up and grin as you stumble down towards the swelling sea. consume the foam and the sand, your brain, oh it's gonna be raw at your pockets demand.
"why did i do it?" you ask. but the answer is found between your sobs as you realise that those you thought you loved are gone... they're all gone.
and what you loved the most is wrapping it's frigid hands around your tender throat. out of your dark it comes, it comes to claim your soul.
it comes
where your treasure is, there your heart will be also
Track Name: Second Son
what have i not done? it seems like everything. it has been ages since i got through to you... i am so ashamed.
i feel as though every breath i've taken has been a waste.
i watch restrained as you chase mistakes with mistakes.
hold to me now, in the quiet, my hurting brother
i feel responsible for all of their failures
these bricks are collapsing and my home is overturned
and the places of safety have all been turned to struggling
could you not have waited with me? you are all falling asleep to the sound of nothing. how could we just sit there not having any motive at all.
we need your help for change
i feel responsible for all of their failures
these bricks are collapsing and my home is overturned
and the places of safety have all been turned to struggling
it's too late. i accept fate. good men die young, and thus i am immortal
don't drown brother, oh! my brother do not drown. don't drown brother, i won't let you drown.
the look in their eyes,
it reflects the stains of their darkest blasphemies.
and my God, i feel it
oh! God, i can feel it.
