Menagerie 03:59
I needed perspective so I held my breath for a while But all I found was a dead end A lightness existence And an understanding of what has been looming The monster under my bed The demon on my chest We're tangled like cobwebs that I smack from face running through haunted houses After the dreams that I have nothing looks better in the morning Like this song that I wrote that I puked on the page Nobody gives a shit Nobody's saving face And I just wanna be a burden I wanna feel the sting of hurt And I wanna rip it apart I wanna drag it all out if there's more pain to feel now I never said I was honest I never said that I wasn't a mess I never said I was honest, cause I'm not
I writhed in the sun all day And that's okay, it was what I wanted I blistered and boiled today And I'm okay, it was self inflicted I think about you everyday Now I'm ashamed, I don't wanna admit this I dropped the line, you drifted away And now you're finally coming to your senses Heat and movement It boils, you go I'm just trying to come back home It's foiled, you know And you smile, you shut me out Like a dog on the tar, I'm begging now To come back inside before I burn out Won't you save me from the swarm? And this hate is gonna kill me But I gotta die either way So I might as well feel something other than this pain If you love again, please say "I love you" If you love again, say "I'll never leave you" If you love again, please say "I do" If you love again, be true
