These useless endeavours that kept you from counting
Seconds when minutes would keep you from shouting
Out loud it would keep you from shouting out loud
Alone it would keep you from counting it down
The silence around me is killing me slowly
The air filled with tension, it some how can hold me
Tightly to the floor, my stomach ties in knots
I bite my tongue 'cause I don't know what's
Tearing these scars deep beneath my skin
Maybe it's this isolation with in
Or the thought alone that's filled me with doubt
I cannot breathe until I'm without
These heavy thoughts, they're too heavy to hold
But I'm still trying to find why this
Isolation is what I take comfort in
I can feel it burning my skin
I breathe in, I breathe out
My eyes open to a narrow light
Tunnelled by my vision, this feeling's not right
The taste of copper has stained my tongue
A rusted flavour that doesn't belong
The fragile ghosts that distort the light
Are fading fast and I'm losing sight
Of my fragile mind, still clouded by guilt
Tears apart your thoughts brick by brick that you have built
It's burning from the taste of salt
This wound won't heal but I've never felt
Like hoping this zinc will keep
Me from rusting when it's rusting I need
It echoes through the noise
These scars are reminders that I cannot hide
I keep telling myself that I don't need hope
But hoping for something is hopeless itself
Hoping for something is hopeless itself
It echoes through the noise
