In the pitch black of night
Tiptoe over the threshold
Into the kitchen
I see lines drawn on your arm
Rivers that hurt as much as they calm

You find refuge in between sobbing
Spells wrapped up tight
In such a hard embrace
The unnerving look of genuine fear
The recognition of failure in the mirror

Though it’s all said and done
Doesn’t mean it leaves you behind
Losing sleep and losing the mind
Termites eating away at the foundation

Hyperventilate and I do all I can to
Satisfy your mind’s ease
Baby steps this time round
Your worries aren’t necessary
You are safe and sound with me

Morning after I am nevermore sober
Feeling than I am now
Gutted like never before
Though I cannot point fingers here
The end results’ gleaming so clear

Though it’s all said and done
Doesn’t mean it leaves you behind
Losing sleep and losing the mind
Termites eating away at the foundation
