A heart of stone spreads its element through your blood You’re the frailest form that deceit could ever choose to take The clearest truth that i was terrified to face Piece by piece And lie by lie Distance grows between us Piece by piece Lie by lie You hide yourself from light One final insult as a parting gift I could hear regret in your voice You refused to look me in the eyes For the last time I have walked away from you The tears are welling up But you don’t care enough To simply ask me to stay 1400 grams of mass consumed with perception Force you to take a mangled shape Pick a pose to take Piece by piece Lie by lie Helpless in your grip i was suffocating but i Cut my way out I see everything clearly now You twisted all the good in me to use for your advantage So i’m replacing every weakness within myself with a jagged piece of anger You can’t hurt me anymore

Every Blade 02:16
You may now break me into pieces bend me as you wish. Terrified of leaving helpless in your grip. Ripping, pulling, tearing, scratching. It doesn't matter how it used to be. Pieces of bone dig their way out of your skin. Sickened by the confines of the cage they were held in.  Clinging to the fragile concept of a heaven you will never see or touch. Every blade seems to barely miss your spine.By the grace of God you'll never die  Every prayer falls short of God's cynical ears  I was relieved on the day that they put you in that cage. Chained up like an animal you rot away.

My search for truth, My search for purpose  In your selfish actions and manipulation always proves useless.  You will waste a lifetime of breath on one empty cause after the next.  You will never find relief from the constant sharp sinking feeling in the pit of your stomach.  When you look around a crowded room And know everyone sees through you.  So bend and contort to fit the shape of people and ideals that you imitate.  This construct of "self' you're holding together one day soon is bound to shatter into broken shards  that collect at your feet.  This is what you are, this is all you'll ever be.

Skin 02:48
I rip at my skin with nails I gnawed short. Claw and tear until I pluck my nerves. Unwind the fibers that hold me together.  Slashing the sutures that have made me whole. Dig my way out  Blisters and sores split and bleed until I feel nothing. Marrow aches for cleansing fire's purifying touch  Just let go, you're nothing to everyone  Shut your eyes, there's nothing for you here  I wrestle with the whispers. Hatred softly spoken. A voice in my mind sings "Fire has no conscience". Let it spread. Grow, and consume all of me.  Dig my way out.

Final Shape 02:49
Grind me down to dust inside of your head  Find my final shape underneath your skin  A mass forms inside of your head And underneath your skin. My hate will burn inside your veins, Spreading throughout your being  I saw you burning; consumed by doubt. A hell of your invention where you belong.  I scarred myself trying to help. Begging, pleading for you to come back to yourself.  Count your breaths as precious gifts as you waste the time you have left. I take my shape under your skin. Scratch at your flesh as I dig my way in. Day by day your spirit grows weaker, your being fades.

Vessel 02:27
If you're weak ,Then I'm weak. Let's pass away together  I'll be the vessel of all of your pain  I'll wield the scythe and turn it on myself  Cover your eyes so you can't see  And at the end of my life if I'm known for one fucking thing. Let it be the hate I feel deep inside my heart for everything about this. It grows and only takes away.  Breathe in air and exhale pain.  I can't watch this. My solution; I'm the patient. I'll die in your place. Sorrow consumes every vein and atom.  Bone marrow creaks and moans; dejected  Bleed me dry. Stark white bones fall apart  I am writhing around in the dark  I'll take your pain claim it my own. Suffer alone.

Severed 03:07
The voices I hear bore through the sides of my skull. Burrow inside, and make themselves at home. Their whispers cut like knives, I can't drown them out. Pull me to the garden where all the wicked rest. In perfection, God put me here to hurt. Severed.  Sing soft until my vision goes completely black.  There's nothing here for me, I'm not going back. Ripping/Pulling/Tearing  Scratching/Pulling/Ripping  Echoes of regret, anger and pain linger in my mind and whisper my name. All the scars on my skin are all I'm worth. One for selfishness, One for pride, And hundreds all over for every lie.
