My timeline is a wire wrapped tight around my neck
Slowly apathy swells, give into disconnect
Unworldly transmission fed to relive the shame
I don’t want a trial, I’ll take all the blame
A stone stolid council speaks dogmatically
Bullets and anecdotes divided evenly
A chilling consciousness wakes me from the trance
It redefines my mind I’ll never have a chance

Nothing, giving, unworthy offering
Losing, feeling like a bird with clipped wings
Sinking feeling, pushing down on me
Swimming, drowning, neurotoxic red sea

A blow shatters my remission
Fractured patterns shown through my skin
Please understand this was not my plan
No, I gotta know:
Does it matter where my heart's been?
Fractured patterns shown through my skin
Please understand this was not my plan
No, I gotta go

Weightless restraint floating away, evaporating
The impulse grows in clouds below, cascading
Dripping whisper, falling faster, raining
Raining, raining, raining, raining...

A blow shatters my remission
Fractured patterns shown through my skin
Please understand this was not my plan
No, I gotta know:
Does it matter where my heart's been?
Fractured patterns shown through my skin
Please understand this was not my plan
No, I gotta go

(Nothing, giving, unworthy offering
Losing, feeling like a bird with clipped wings
Sinking feeling, pushing down on me
Swimming, drowning, neurotoxic red sea,
Does it matter where my heart's been?
Losing, feeling like a bird with clipped wings
Sinking feeling, pushing down on me
Swimming, drowning, neurotoxic red sea...)
