lyrics

Lift this flesh up to serve secret desires.
The sky above and earth below, our home with the ashes
Of past laments, things left unsaid.
A lonesome breeze, the day I left.
Your lips on mine, the bitter taste
Of a yearning heart that’s lost the strength to love.
With regrets weighing down, I sink to the bottom of despair.

All alone, slowly dying, there’s a lack within.
Born of God, forsaken virtue, this divine flesh.

Can you feel all that’s left?
This sprawling distance.
This sprawling distance.
The silence of isolation.

All alone, slowly dying, there’s a lack within my heart.
Born of God, forsaken virtue, this divine flesh is rotting.
Was I thrown into being all broken or did I do this to myself?
In desperation I cry out, please let this life end.

If I had to chose, I would want nothing to do with me.
If I had to chose, I would want nothing do with this.

Lover, can you feel your brittle bones break with the weight of words we once said in silence?
Darling, if all the lonely stars in the sky fell I would still feel your warmth till the end.
My God, if you have made me in your image, then what makes you despise yourself so?
To be honest, I feel like every breath I take would be better off as my last.

And how many more years of this must I bear?
How many more times will I numb myself?
To feel through just another day.
I can’t go on.

Will I die to find
The true meaning of your smile?
Will the heavens open up
And show me the light of redemption?

Or will the never-ending dark
Be my only salvation?
Will I see your face again
Before my final breath?
When will I see your face again?
