still my heart, cease the beating

quickened by your passing grace

better to fix my gaze ahead and forget

forget everything

for now just keep on walking,

swallow the words back down

and pray for nothing

steel myself and melt back,

into the shadows

continue down this lonely path

where love and joy fear to tread

an island of strength,

safe from all feeling

for now just keep on walking,

swallow the words back down

and pray for nothing

for now just keep on walking,

swallow the words back down

and pray for nothing

easier to just let go,

than to fight and lose

an idea to lofty to hole onto

all these nights awake spent staring at these walls

all these feeling I've tried hard to quell

i hole my breath and try to force it away,

clenched fists, gritting my teeth

waiting for the new day,

to come and dispell these clouds away

a sky of dim prospect,

to grim to behold

i'll bow my head and plow forward

carve my heart out from my ribs,

trap it in a box, and throw away the key

if i told you where i hid it,

you'd only use it to destroy me

nerves long dead,

turned to dust from lack of use

i've forgotten what its like,

to bask in hopes warm light

i've forgotten what its like,

to bask in hopes warm light

still my heart, cease the beating

quickened by your passing grace

better to fix my gaze ahead and forget,

forget everything
