lyrics

a codependency on ritual. peer ideology is habitual. so many dreams are perpetual. so it seems i am. in my contemplative eye i can see flashing lights. algorithmic symmetry. perfectly. trembling towers built in hours and they're all for me. i cannot reply. i will not reply. i cannot comply. i will not comply. i will not lie. i will bleed for your life and your lies if that's how you'll free me. i will stand by your side as you die, ashamed of still being alive. alone in the collective eye it's perfectly silent. failure is waiting behind, its fingers pulling our lines. refuse is all that i have seen. a somber comedy in futility. true purpose is hidden somewhere in between what is said and what is believed. every frigid ounce of blue overhead and bearing down on me is swallowed whole by truth and crushed into the clouds. i've walked, wings clipped, conscience ripped blindly up and on a journey best forgotten now a decade from the dawn. still i climb here i am atop the winding stair. babbled words unheard by foreign ears. tear apart the tattered binds that hold to the shreds of life i've bought and sold. here's to every brick i've carried. to my back that's broken down. i could ask how i came to marry a world of fragile sound. when you whisper down a haunted lane the reply is an empty room that echoes of your name. will not lie down. will not close my eyes.
