We only need what we cannot create ourselves
So give me a reason to keep filling these lungs.
We may only have two heads, but
We still do the work of beasts.
Succumb yourself
The end of the line is a firing squad.
Consider this my resignation.
Save your blindfolds for someone who needs them,
Consider this my resignation,
Save your blindfolds for someone who needs them.
If worse comes to worst,
I’ll rip out my eyes and drop dead.
Oh, I never claimed
To be stronger than this
I am not a man,
But a fucking child.
I am a product of the waste
That I hold in my ribcage.
I am only worthy of praise
From whores and liars.
If this is what I have to look forward to,
I’m all set with becoming a man.
I’ll take a page from the book of the dead,
Because I’d rather be a corpse
Than the scum I am.
So I wrote them a letter
Explaining my departure from a cold, concrete room.
There is nothing in these veins.
There is nothing to this heart but hate.
There is nothing under this skin,
And I am owed no more than that from others,
So why the fuck would Jesus die for me?
