I would climb away from the mind,
If only life could take the place of its bloody void
I would shake the skin from my corpse
If only time could stray away from the jaded noise

The perfect moment I'd forfeit
If only the current could flow
At the rate of a pulse

Take my head (Take my head off)
It's too late (Too late to organize it)
These words in themselves (Of obsession)
Are my bane (Slaughter of the daylight)

The foundation
Presented at the birth
Falls and withers
With the still of the earth

The rotting sound, never will cease
The crying shape of a sky, memory of peace
Thoughts forgiven, 'til they return

Only the blind can follow the path
Only the deaf can hear the words spoken to them

So how can I contemplate the riddle?
The more I think, the more I die
How can I designate a meaning?
I long to forfeit the question of "Why?"
We're all told to question
But the search is poisoning me

The colors of the world, they could take hold of me
The promise of your voice, it could take fear from me
The release of these words, it could make light for me
But they have all took their turn, never surrendering to me

They twist at the smell of hope

I would climb away from the mind,
If only life could take the place of its bloody void
I would shake the skin from my corpse
If only time could stray away from the jaded noise

The perfect moment I'd forfeit
If only the current could flow
At the rate of a pulse
