each day seems harder than the last. i find myself struggling
to live to someone else's fullest potential. let the ugly deliquesce from my face. i jam these fingers down my throat in hopes that tomorrow is easier. easier than yesterday.
a book once filled of photographs, some now removed to prevent onset of pain. i've played this scenario over and over again. i cannot give or take without guilt. every step taken. the foward momentum striking nerves. every step taken. this hole widens in my chest, a vicious cycle of pain that is passed on. you passed this curse, this plague. every touch, every kiss, every embrace... deepens my scars and spreads to others. i cannot love without guilt. time does not heal, it only makes you weaker. this void lets me know i am destined to die alone.
i would lasso her like a cowboy, but my rope isnt long enough. im dying here.

    General CommentThis band is laced with such vivid emotion that it hurts to listen to them. Truly inspirational. Anyone have the lyrics to This Aint No Skipping Stone?

    General Commentthree vocal parts, three writers of this one. i can't speak for drew or winston, but my part came from some inner turmoil i suffered due to inadequacies of my physical appearance..."jam my fingers down my throat" is a metaphor, however...i wasn't bulemic. :)
