Kill the lights
Sever all lines
Lock the doors from deep inside
Tonight, no one’s home
No idiot wind
Soothing din
Distracting from the task at hand
Tonight
I’ll know what I can know

I’m dying tonight
I’m taking my time
Perfection begins when it hurts
I’m healing in slashes and burns
And that’s how you live with a curse

To separate
Concentrate
Surrendering through meditation
Centering a soul
A kingdom first
A blade of verse
Deconstruction in reverse
What have I ever really known?

I’m dying tonight
I’m taking my time
Perfection begins when it hurts
I’m healing in slashes and burns
And that’s how you live with a curse

Leave it all behind
Nothing here is mine
But
I want it
I need it
nurture and feed it
Kill my darlings once and for all time
Because nothing here is mine
Nothing here is mine
I leave it all behind

I’m dying tonight
I’m taking my time
Perfection begins when it hurts
I’m healing in slashes and burns

And that’s how you live
That’s how you live
That’s how you live with a curse

And that’s how you live
That’s how you live
That’s how you live with a curse
