Favorite Quote:
1. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
2. You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.
3. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.

You’re weeding out the worst of me
Every inch exploding greed
I lock myself away from you to hide from all your need
You wrap your fear around me so I never see the light
A self-destructive method to demean my human plight

I find myself positioned underneath your solid hold
I lower myself into the depths to escape the burning cold
You cease to stay on top of me
Commanding my faithful style
I’m afraid that all that’s left of me
Is a shattered empty smile

A grin with such conviction compels your twisted mind
To follow me into the black for a chance to go unwind
Yet every step you take into the cavernous display
Brings you closer to exposure and even closer to decay, to decay

I slither from your reach so when you bite I will not bleed
But when you take the one last inch of me that didn’t want to leave
I surrender myself to save myself and to keep myself sane
And right beneath these hollowed eyes lays the answer to all your pain, all your pain

You see it
Now breathe it
And don’t deny it
You want it
Now take it
And don’t destroy it

When you rest your stare upon the lies don’t rub away the dirt
Don’t break it down to nothing so you’ll never feel the hurt
And as the hurt is pulsing through your veins I navigate the dark
So when you come to you won’t find the need to tear your heart apart
You wrung out all the thought from me
Just like you had alleged
But now it’s time you see the way you spread your f***ing dread
Like one right path into my head I suppress the pain you led
But consciousness is leaving me as I become consumed with red, consumed with red
