Redeemer 04:05
Sheltered pine in darkness. Trickles down my bones. Fingertips are tridents. The weapon you chose. I can feel it all and it makes me numb. Will you show me how when the time comes? You're my redeemer. You don't know what you've done. All my delusions melt away in your sun. One touch many miles to find you. One touch many miles inside you. Aching for your tithing. Blessing blood and stone. Tricking all my senses. On fire, a tingling moan. I can feel it coming on, like a flushing flame. Will you keep this on until I feel saved again? You're my redeemer. You don't know what you've done. All my delusions melt away in your sun.

Last deep breath. We're going in. There's no turning back. Too late for regrets. The water was too deep. It forced us all to sleep. But that's how I learned to swim. I sink until the end. High above you. I see clearly now. I always loved you and I always will. I always will. Back down below. Why can't I hear you? Why can't I see your light anymore? You take away a piece of me. The best part that I can see. It should have been me. Why do I have to live without? High above you. I see clearly now. I always loved you and I always will. I always will. Here I stand. Alone. Everything is so dark and cold I reach out my hand but there's nothing to hold. I'm not afraid ‘cause at least I know. The dark invites me in because it touches my soul. Find comfort in the loss of my sorrow. I'd give anything just to have and to hold you once last time. I'd tear down the sea. It's nothing to me. High above you. I see clearly now. I always loved you and I always will. I always will.

Here I am. Is it what you wanted? Soaked in sin. Don't you wanna love it? Just for a chance, ‘cause nothing ever lasts. Hold on tight, ‘cause change cuts like a knife. Show me what's beneath your skin. Forced into faith. I can hear them calling. Shoved into hate. Is it worth a damn thing? If you want me to love. If you ask me ‘am I enough?’ Am I enough? I'm broken and hollow. Try again. Maybe tomorrow. Gotta run away. Gotta run away, so I can mend. Gotta hide away. Gotta hide away, so I don't have to pretend.

I'm here. Crawling to you. Following all the way. All the way up your lines. Can you feel short circuiting out? Lighting the way. Showing me inside. What a sight. Trying not to behave but the current already knows the way. Sparks are just a symptom. Gotta plug me in your system. Gotta plug. Me. In. Your. System. This is where it goes down, quietly. In a calm fashion now. There's no point in trying to get out. In a quiet desperation you say to me “have your way with me.” Cold electricity. Tracing all of the wires, You’ve got a virus already sickening you. Trying no to to devour the digital who, The digital you. The version you’ve shown me, The version I can’t see. It’s just a man in the machine pulling the strings. Tickling it stings. Wonder what he needs. Everything just fades to black. Not sure you’ll ever come back from that. Blown all the circuits, the circuits are worthless. Everything else is made of flesh. In time nothing will be left. Sparks can fly. Inside. Pass you by your whole life.

Shape shifting into something different now. Peeling away what I can change. I'll have to survive the violence somehow. Tearing down everything that's fake. All along I should have seen. What I'd become, a little broken thing. So insecure, damaged, insane. You want to see me suffer. Beautiful lies that we tell ourselves. Deceptive words meant to enslave. Poisoning minds how the body can tell. What is good, what is fake and what is hate. This is where it goes down. This is where it goes down. You mislead me and bleed me to cover up my light. I needed you to see this through so I won't give up the fight. Twisted arms that you're holding out. Meant to break so I can fall. I can't believe my spirit survived so long. There's a place way down hidden deep inside my soul, Where the cracks reveal I still can feel, Even though it doesn't show my light. Will take all my secrets away to the grave? Bury my demons before they awake. Shattering dreams until monsters take shape. Before they escape, I need to feel safe. The voices are saying I'm already dead, but all of the screaming is just in my head. I tried to be something but I'm nothing instead. You sold me my freedom and now I'm in debt. This is where it goes down. This is where it goes down. You mislead me and bleed me to cover up my light. I needed you to see this through so I won't give up the fight. You mislead me and bleed me to cover up my light. You mislead me and bleed me to cover up my light. I needed you to see this through so I won't give up the fight. So I won't give up the fight.

I used to be afraid of everything. It was always my fault. I can't escape the pain even if I tried. Go slowly, gently now. So slowly, without a doubt. My heart still beats for now. My heart is bleeding out. It's bleeding out. Should've never got myself so low. It's not like I've been here before. Keep on looking in the past. That's how things didn't last. Isn't that what we tell ourselves? Nothing's ever gonna change. You repeat the same old things. Isn't that what we sell ourselves? Go slowly, gently now. So softly, without a doubt. My heart still beats for now. My heart is bleeding out. It's bleeding out. My heart still beats for now. My heart is bleeding out. It's bleeding out. It's bleeding out….

The grave has swallowed my heart. Divided in parts that I cannot mend. I thought I was open to change. Imaginary fate, too big to ignore. Missing you in waves. I can't hold my breath. The current is strong as it carries me away. So lost. Adrift in an endless sea of voiceless. Reach out to guide me. They tell me, “search for the silver line.” It's been missing since I lost you to the other side. Sinking in thought . Dragging me under. I'm missing you in waves. I can't hold my breath. The current is strong as it carries me away. And it was always for us. A beautiful universe. Phantom sings. A siren song that only brings the wretched near. Earthless thing. Forsaking the sights and sounds that I hear. Hold me down. Just beneath the surface, Things are quiet still. Surely drowned. By accepting my fate as I flow, My sorrow is just another undertow. Pushing me down. I lose control. I don't wanna live if living is without you. I'm missing you in waves. I can't hold my breath. The current is strong as it carries me away. Missing you in waves. I can't hold my breath. The current is strong as it carries me away. I tried to accept that I'm already dead. I died that day, the day that you left. I’m missing you in waves. I can't hold my breath. The current is strong as it carries me away. I tried to accept that I'm already dead. I died that day, the day that you left.

Silent Onyx 03:45
Starting to feel again. Quickening in my skin. I want to tear you apart. Just for hell of it. I can eat away the pain. Shock the system. Futile resistance. You're part of the problem now here is the cure. Don't try to hide. I'm just coming alive. Missing you in waves. And I can't hold my breath. Current is strong as it carries me away. Searing flesh to flesh. Sensitive to my touch. Nothing can tear us apart. I can give you anything. Devour the hurt away. Slightest incision. Meaningless existence. Poisoned emotion now I am the cure. Don't try to hide. I'm already inside. We are, as one. We are, as one. We are, as one. I am the one.

Pneumaturia 02:06
Will you show me how? Will you show me how, when the time comes? You’re my redeemer.

I think I'm starting to fade. It's just a little too late. Yeah. The voice inside of me hates the way I choke on all my words. My worth is tied to this fate. The length is long on the rope I swing. I shouldn't feel this safe exposed for all to see my flaws. I wish I was a little bit stronger. I wish I could find my strength. In a perfect world I'd breathe underwater. So I wouldn't be afraid to sink. It's all going down, anyway. So let it burn for now, anyway. I really need to escape. But it's really hard to separate myself. Some things you just can't change. When it's deeply underneath your skin. Eyes are windows to the soul. But windows can easily be closed I'm used to putting on a show. I'm used to losing control. I wish I was a little bit stronger I wish I could find my strength. In a perfect world I'd breathe underwater. So I wouldn't be afraid to sink. It's all going down, anyway. So let it burn for now, anyway. I wish I was a little bit stronger. I wish I could find my strength. It's going down, anyway. Let it burn for now So it's going down, down, down. High above you. I see clearly now. High above you. I see clearly now. I always loved you and I always will. I always will. High above you. I see clearly now. I always loved you and I always will. I always will. High above you. I will love you. I always will.
