with nothing in sight we'll drive through the night hopeless pull your hair out the winds of change the passage, the void all of your time spent just waiting to die just turn your back on me this life should not have been and should not be Somewhere beyond the sea the soil, the sky, the trees. All of my life I've been transparent in dirt and dying leaves it doesn't mean a thing All of my life I've been coherent what has become of me? it doesn't mean a thing. Run hide dawns approach breathes life pain so heavy roots are torn like a giant's been dragging you fall like the trees and leave behind patches of broken earth. with nothing in sight we'll drive through the night hopeless pull your hair out the winds of change the passage, the void all of your time spent just waiting to die since age 16 you sang of misanthropy this life should not have been and should not be Somewhere beyond the sea the soil, the sky, the trees. All of my life I've been transparent in dirt and dying leaves it doesn't mean a thing All of my life I've been coherent what has become of me? it doesn't mean a thing. Run hide dawns approach breathes life pain so heavy roots are torn like a giant's been dragging you fall like the trees and leave behind patches of broken earth.

I was ready to feed my mouth And I watched my skin turn white I refused to make a sound It was a bad one I envisioned it healthy Soon my cheeks were red I gave my net to Philip For two minutes of fun Strafe Knees bend Back arch Jaw clench Pull until tendons snap Pull the hairs from my neck Doom burns my third eye In two I once lived with a guardian Saw his eyes turn yellow This was a season before The end of summer As I stood in a room painted green I felt my youth leaving me There were things left unsaid But even more left undone When I go through a phase I'd turn away the sun Color makes me feel that I'm the only one I could never see through so much hatred such injustice I could never find the hue of true love full of bad blood I've found it I've found it

Mundane - consumed by life reprise takes him over dependency thrives Tumultuous - in finding his way his heart strings they bellow and snap with the weight he is Lost- like a sheep to the wolves awaiting the wind for a change like a fool he's kept Facedown - his lungs fill with earth Left to drown Go forth anointed Condemned by those reprieved Can't you hear them wailing, of depravity Grant yourself release Apathy - leads him to stray like reaching for a hand that's been put in the grave
