When everything breaks And falls a part I look for a knife To pull me up Not everyone knows The release of a blade But I do The need for a cut A pivital fade out on thoughts I feel to much Some days It isthe only touch that soothes me Red threads streaking Surfacing Make me weightless When I am drowning Reset and then On the reel I dont want to Feel

Pull on that string While I put out the fires closing in pull up a chair you said you wanted to swing Pour out your heart and I'll pull you in and put on a sad face it wont last us the night So put on a good play darling let's sway Even though we both know we don't know the game Pull on that string while I put out the fires closing in pull up your heart from down there in the dirt Put on a good play darling let's sway Even though we both know we don't know the game Pull on that string there are fires closing in Pour out your heart And I will pull you in pull you in

Early morning hug my pillow tight Waiting, waiting for the light Underneath the covers I don't have to fight fight myself Running between places rain hits my face doesn't hear my praises leaves without a trace leaves without a trace leaves without a trace rain hits my face Running different places rain hits my face doesn't hear my praises leaves without a trace leaves without a trace leaves without a trace rain hits my face

Thought Spun We didn’t ever think The silence would take hold of us Lips that stick and nothing slips The waiting game until someone trips Does anyone, anywhere, feel anything at all? All I really want to give you is on hold brushed of with the strokes you painted me so differently I'm opaque for all the world to see But that is not me That is not me at all At all Some days I take flight But fear has the longest fingers You are good at snapping wings Into a thousand pieces Some days I take flight But fear has the longest fingers You are good at snapping wings Into a thousand pieces Without even noticing

These days, my mind, Is fixated on you Can't you just Make a mistake or two Post haste, Don't waste me in the ground Justify the taste And take me, to your most hidden place Take me down On the floor of the river Take me I’ll be by your side And drown my head in the water Come with me down To the waterfront Drown my, head In the river Take me down On the floor of the river Where I can not be found again And my bones They are soon forgotten The water’s all around And I can, not swim I feel, so, irrelevant The water covers me Fills my lungs, fills everything I am, home I am, home

The ghost birds At the end of a day another moon rises A friend at the end of this flight The ghost birds of this town are happy to have their feathers and their fathers smile And I'we got my mothers eyes Looking out for me at every turn A shadow disguises The breaking of bonds it's a sight for the sorest of eyes Shedding our feathers As if it's our first time But failing to cover our minds And I'we got my mothers eyes Looking out for me at every turn Looking over my shoulder For the things I never told her The same feather the same face Still everything deteriorates Sleeping is for dreamers Sleeping is for dreamers
7.
It doesn't always come easy but I know that you know that to go ain't the answer And there is no help in dreaming when nobody stands for the right you believe in There is no use in fighting with a gun while you run out of places to hide in my my, slow down breathe in, breathe out. Are they looking at you kid asking you to be their savior? Are they counting all their stars you're on your knees for changed behaviour? Why is nobody grieving? What's the worth of a life on the edge of the border? Are they looking at you kid asking you to be their savior? Are they counting all their stars you're on your knees for changed behaviour? Out of all the things, we have been through together I know we can do better, than this. Out of all the things, we have been through together I know we can do better, than this. Are they looking at you kid asking you to be their savior? Are they counting all their stars you're on your knees for changed behaviour?
