I don't have nice things to say but at least I mean it I had something nice going for me It's a memory, burned in born into the afterbirth of a would-be apocalypse sever the tether I want to eat my words. So badly to believe in God, someone to love through Everything has to die to be felt. I don't know where this goes We don't have nice things to say but at least we mean it You uphold a legacy of death Destruction is less than what you deserve Your banks, your churches, your sheriffs They will burn with you I've been living for twenty-five years My earth's been dying for twenty-five years Loved ones, losing for twenty-five years Bank accounts, negative for twenty-five years nothing changing. twenty-five years. I've been dying for twenty-five years. nothing changing. twenty-five years. I've been dying for twenty-five years. Decay. At least we meant it.
Time is a tool Wearing down my universe The one that exists in truth And the one I perceive Damage my data Earn my dollar Stretch and smooth my cuts And make it normal again Make sure I run and display, load properly Feel my thumb trace yours I know you're there It's not what it used to be I'm a system of systems Sure to expire one day, But functional for now. You'll repeat my worries You'll repeat my blessings You'll repeat my promises You'll repeat my stories And I'll repeat yours too As bad as it's been for me You were there too. Hands washing another. We'll resurface each other.
Handhe 00:50
Closer Follow Take my hand My hand holds its own gravity My aim feels true Trace along the pull And breathe your deepest Perpendicular death Dancers along the light, Let the high-speed phantoms Carry me away
