The nothingness that surrounds us


  • Life

    The nothingness that surrounds us

    Let the blood drip from my vein
    These urges I can no longer contain
    Decayed flesh all around myself
    You're on the pedestal up on the shelf

    Leaving you behind is my lonesome song
    This life no longer in me is strong
    How can I tell you that I've failed
    My train off the tracks, derailed

    Pull the pins from my bleeding heart
    Set my death in motion, make it a start
    Consumed by the nothingness all around
    My true self will never be found

    But all is good in my mind and soul
    Ever restricting me is my pole
    Pushing you further and further away
    Cast into thee dark to live as a stray

    Bodies surrounding one anothers space
    The passion can never be erased
    It's only just begun
    All in all this should be fun

    Yet I can only ponder the questions in your eyes
    Your dreams, hopes, and deceitful lies
    Wrap yourself around my skin and become one
    Let me take away the pain and become numb

    Cast me aside into the shadows of hell
    Become nothing but a man out of his shell
    Striken to walk alone nude with all the pondering people
    Lay me upon my steeple

    Waiting for you to pull me back in
    Around us all consumed by sin
    Something so wrong feeling so dam good
    That life and that the way it should
