there's blood beneath your nails
from clawing at the ceiling
& pulling down answers to
perfect questions.

like blades sharpening
you've become aware
of what's real.
you're not alone
when you feel the air
is apart here.
crashing comes the light
into your eyes.

here you dont fit
& oh the worst is
learning to lose.
a tired head is all you're left
to take apart, faithless art
leaving your mind abused.

like blades softening
you can hardly tell
salt and heal.
you're not alone
when you feel the air.
is apart here.
crashing comes the light
into your eyes.

    General CommentNo one else commenting... well, I'm sure we can all relate to this song, which is a god damn master piece. It's that feeling of being alone, always feeling that you don't belong. You being to ponder your existence, and you start to see things for what they are; no more sugar coated experiences. You're confused, lost, and all these thoughts of whats going on within yourself depresses you. You don't know who or what you are. You don't fit in with others, you don't relate. You can't think, you can't laugh, you can't function as you normally would; not with all these depressing thoughts and feelings within yourself. You doubt everything.
