Ruin 01:19
Woke up bleeding never amazed how violent nights bleed into freshly darkened mornings as indistinct blemishes become the closest thing to honesty I've felt this year my face, the rorschach test, not wiped away it all just smears nothing ever really leaves, without leaving its scars and somethings they just don't go the way they promised us, head in hands while convictions of only denial, dig deep in our skin depression stakes its claim its snuffing out the flame that casts my shadow with every step, its shapes blank stones, refuses poetic deaths until i am forever undone
Unsewn 01:33
Ambivalent to blood ties Immune to the time lines constraining the mindset that chaos with love binds when this is all it is, and emptiness exists our world is a bastard with nobody to answer for it try dying slow, because nothing good happens quick sling shit and know, none of it ever sticks we spin as spitting images of stones falling aimless for faith wont learn in the landing dirts another word for fate what luck to be dust on a shelf thrust into blank space and told to find self confronted with choice and convinced that its wealth that pain is testament to the value of life notes in your palm with the tip of a knife every sense overwhelms the epicenter of a romanticized hell the center will never hold unsewn the gravity of language is a hoax emotions are just words that chemicals distort the weight of consciousness is only a curse the best is yet to come, but i have seen no methods more rehearsed
Vignette 01:03
Can you thrive in the cracks of the concrete? Will you feed it beauty, but relent to feeling incomplete? as the darkness on the edge of the lens leave it all on the fray where the big picture meets the frame none of the guilt, all of the blame bringing no burdens, but shoulder the weight unworthy seed, dormant in me sought as a solution, born to know only the pain
Wrung Out 01:38
Excess 00:17
15 flights of crossed out names succumbed to the doubts, bit bullets and bowed out short ends of every compromise just short of worth in our eyes ragdoll deadweight freefall the freedom of total indifference
Mute 01:42
do your worst throw your fist from the top of the fence spit your vague recycled concept teach the politics of linguistics and your middle ground rhetoric treat with a reworded indifference strip it down to a product of privilege wear it with rewarded contentment smug, reserved, enlightened scorekeeper for the last resort cannon fodder its black and white and it does the trick its a solid stance without having to think keep it short, like its over our heads how simple and safe at best a fence, at worst a cage alone on all sides yet you still line it with those same pieces of shit that feign a dull roar but just whimper and hiss an echo chamber to keep you convinced that you're as much villain as a victim you're neither and when their numbers up, will you speak or wage your own battle with cold stares over miles like your absence rattles any cage deluded fuck
Unhinged 00:44
Relent, draw blood, repent draw your lines and press your back against the corner face a world with a staring problem eye to eye no more forgive and resent show how easy it would have been to hold their tongues avoid the regrets of the spineless, of the cowards...
Still paying to homage to a home, more often a grave such glory, ornamented in decay doom struck echoes torment with the language of loss with the presence of rot followed footsteps with phantoms of dead friends lay the bricks in a city of dead ends cold with old loyalties and cruel formalities resigned and praising for our paradise not a doubt in our minds, stop talking and die follow suit of your saviors, stop talking and die chase the lights of idle minds reflect the wills of the undefined legitimize every breath with another shallow gasp or another certain death
