Track Name: Wounds That Never Heal
When your body fell
from the noose you'd made
I didn't hear it land,
but felt it reverberate
throughout my body
and my face went white again
I closed my eyes, closed tight again

And each loss, burns holes in me,
with each loss, I lose a part of me

Three times in three years
I got that call,
and three times, in three years,
I've performed this ritual
this ritual of sacrifice
until it burns, it burns my eyes

And each loss, burns holes in me,
with each loss, I lose a part of me

Yeah, when you breathed your last,
and your life escaped you
a part of me, went with you
yeah, a part of died that day too,
slipped away, into the blue

And each loss, burns holes in me,
with each loss, I lose a part of me

Now I'm left behind,
more alone in this world
to battle with my scars again
and fight my own shadow
but the scars always,
always remain
with these wounds that never heal
life is never the same
Track Name: Separation
Walk away,
just walk away
from the flames
of ten years gone
just watch it all burn,
burn down
to nothing
while you just,
just walk away
I hear what you say
I hear your voice
it just seems so far away
lost in the nothing
floating in the void

And so the world
collapses down
down on me again,
and beneath the weight of it all
life becomes a shrinking thing
I struggle to embrace
and all I feel
is it slipping away
again, again, again
