Track Name: Asphyxiation
All I breathe is all I offer
Take it at it’s best
But I can’t hold my breath much longer
It’s poisoning my chest
I tried to steal the secrets from your head
But I got locked inside instead
If I could rest instead of wonder
I’d lay down with the dead
Deep as the sky that I’d sleep under
The ground would be my bed
I can feel her eyes watching over me
I’m running through the night
Thoughts that were once
Words to be heard that grew heavy and sunk
Were left to die inside but now they rise
I’m coughing them up
Like smoke that has clouded the top of my lungs
Drift and disappear into the quiet of the night
What you’ve said to me is no more
Your cold tongue lays still
A serpent sleeping behind closed doors
Gathering venom for the kill
How slowly the doors are opening for me
So close the windows tearfully
Thoughts that were once
Words to be heard that grew heavy and sunk
Were left to die inside but now they rise
I’m coughing them up
Like smoke that has clouded the top of my lungs
Drift and disappear into the quiet of the night
Pry open my eyes to make sure I can’t see
They’re white now, looking back, betrayed by memory
Thoughts that were once
Words to be heard that grew heavy and sunk
Were left to die inside but now they rise
I’m coughing them up
Like smoke that has clouded the top of my lungs
Drift and disappear into the quiet of the night
