Track Name: Never
Awake hollow
The galore of what I had before
A favourite thing to sink deep
A dying mind of keepsakes
A dry mouth of lies

I've spent all my time
Swallowing my heart
Drowning it soundly
While my every effort rots

I am my own mime
Whispering my parts
Knowing tomorrow
I'll be all I'm not

A weighted sorrow
The guilt of what I have built
Four walls in which to seep
They can't show you what to know
Please know me before I go

I've spent all my time
Following her heart
Placing my graces
I'll be forgot

This is a wasted rhyme
Crawling forward blind
Delaying decay
Our faces fall apart

Days always pacing
Trying not to find
Only an addict of mistakes
In an attic of severed ties
Track Name: Birthdays
Maybe next year
Maybe we'll keep in touch
But maybe next year
This won't mean as much

A craving, scared
For the ghost of what I loved most
But it's been so many birthdays
Since I began to make these repairs

Maybe next year
If I'm still here

Grow into saying no
Then grow into lying low
And mirrors begin to show
A man, no one wants to know

I already miss the taste
In your sweating bed, blushing red
The black hair I couldn't keep
And your blood on my white sheets

Maybe next year
If I still care
