Speak your name just one last time

Then proceed to bite through my tongue

Close my eyes

Sew them shut

Then burn your face in my mind

Here in the night

Here in the dark

Stitches in my mind rip and tear apart

Leave me here undone

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own

This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring

The feel of thread behind my lids reminds me of when we were young

Scratch the walls

Bind my hands

And pray the night closes in

Thoughts in my head

Cancer of the mind

Letting chaos in

Killing all it finds

Leave me here unwhole

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own

This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring

Look to the light and slip into forever

Close your eyes and you’ll see the life I wanted

Yours was the last face I saw before I lost my eyes

Yours was the last name I said before I gave up my voice

Yours were the last words I thought before I lost my mind

Yours was the last life I took before I took my own

Lost my eyes to make my point

And yet I still feel unfulfilled

I can’t speak

I can’t think without a fatal result

Two becoming one

One becoming two

You make me hate everything I do

But I will persist

This, I see

This, I know:

This fight I’ll fight on my own

This is a war of silence I keep losing

Despite my senses, I cannot stop caring

Look to the light and slip into forever

Close your eyes and you’ll see the life I wanted
