Slip passed the first way we went about
Deciding the exact moment
When faith became doubt
Killing fields are open again, or so they
Tell me and so they kill me
Each night a new death to celebrate the blood
Violence over silence or so they tell me

But I wouldn't have it the same way you buy and sell me

Slash and slander marks a name in this game
And "it's only letters", she tells me
"Only letters that I've thrown away"
Heart stop motion, cardiac silence
For a handful of notions
Tangle the cord itself, tied back to avoid the burn

Strangle the hordes yourself
No way I'll feel you and never learn

Giving up, giving in, slipping up on trying once again

Trimmed and tethered all around
The last call to appease you all
We drink from the same glass
A courage unforeseen yet deeply suspended
Opportunity to even the score once more extended

Take from me as you will, force fed failures moving inward still
