Breaking bread

How does the world go down
how do we break the sound
crawl from the shadows back
kill without an attack
break bones and always wither
placate by making dinner
speak without saying words
this agreement never worked
how does it all come to an end
you refuse to see the breaking bread


Twisted higher than before
the rope it holds you ever more
keeps you knocking on my door
keeps me always feeling sore
twisted once again
higher than within
a different colored sin
pastels to that black again
keeps you always wanting it
twisted higher than before
breaking off what isn’t torn
everything in place
you know I crave the taste

Smoke break

I need a smoke break
need time to think
time to remember what is me
I need to breathe that dirty air
get myself away from here
smoked it right down to the filter
got myself smoking dinner
I need to escape and find myself
don’t know my name
or where I’m bound
I need a smoke break before the train
don’t know where I’m belonging again

Never mention

Pull it in the wrong direction
breaking down the walls again
push it out the way it comes
never know the name it was
walk away with tears in eyes
come to sun through midnight
wake up fast
and don’t go back
pull it out in the wrong direction
the way it can’t go
the never mention

I can break it

I can break down the house
I can tear it right down
won’t use nothing
but my hands and my lungs
breathed in this deception
this thing we call love
built all these walls around it
keep it safe and sound
but I can take the roof off
yes I can tear it down
leave it all to nothing
scrap for a dirty junk yard
I can tear it right down
won’t use nothing but these arms
I breathed in these deceptions
this thing you labeled love
and I built a house all around us
keep us safe and sound
but now I’m destroying everything
burn this house straight into the ground
and when it’s all a bad memory
remember who tore it right down

I won’t

I won’t bleed again
though you’re beneath my skin
the essence of my soul
though this has made me whole
I won’t bleed for this
mistakes upon your lips
the stains in which do twitch
from constant use and stress
break me if you can
I still won’t sink in sand.

The slow break

I’m sick and twisted
over moderately disturbed
but when you miss it
you’ll just make it worse
don’t dismiss it
just sit and listen
if you can’t hear me
then just get lost
because every single second
is a second cost
and every single moment
I remember it all
mind will play its tricks you see
I will remember everything
but nothing is what it seems
no, I can see what’s happening
I am sick
my mind is twisted
part of why
I can’t feel this love
it is gone as I am ill
one day soon I’ll know
how loss feels
