Track Name: Styx
The things I've seen
The things I've done
Made me the ghost that I've become
Glass veins
Pale skin
This fragile state you've got me in
Track Name: Abyss
I buried my heart, then I buried myself
No longer breathing, no longer needing help
I wrote no goodbyes
"Enter the abyss, exit life"
Track Name: The Well
Years of writing letters to myself
Been throwing them all down this well
Never to be read
A bottomless pit filled with feelings I've had
Years of learning to let go
But it seems the more I learn, the less I know
As the ink dissolves in the water
I grow older
And talking gets harder

Can't forget the things you said
Can't get your fucking voice out of my head
My mouth goes numb and talking gets harder
The well grows deeper and the water gets darker

The life I know
Years of letting go

I sink deeper
And choke on my regrets
This well does not forgive
The things I'd want to forget

Track Name: Coma
Your voice trembles as you sing me to sleep
Seems we both know the end is near
Colors have faded and your touch has grown colder
Summer's left and now it's over
With my eyes closed I can still feel that first touch of your lips
Smell your cigarette breath when we first kissed
The sun seemed warm but the sheets were warmer
Summer's left and now it's over

Nights as long as days
Never sleeping
Everything fades
Bruised hearts on borrowed time

What now is yours once was mine
Bruised hearts on borrowed time
I can still see it when I close my eyes
Lips like summer, winter arrives.
Track Name: Lingerer
Hearts will bleed as I grind my teeth
Bruising fast
Love won't last
She slows down time
As she says she's mine
A touch so soft it breaks my spine
Unable to move
Unable to breathe
Slowly slipping out of reach

Hearts will break as I grind my teeth
Sleeping in the streets
Bottled souls so I could feel
Face cracks
Brain leaks
Arms bleed
As she ties the weight
Around my feet
Track Name: Atonement
She tied my hands to my feet and then told me to swim
I feel like sleeping in the water but it won't let me in
I've carved her name into my bones
So I'd never be alone
I've been eating chalk
And drinking wax
I've sold my soul
And it seems I won't get it back

She tied my hands to my feet and then told me to swim
The shore seems far
And my hope runs thin
I close my eyes
And let life begin
