lyrics

page by page, burn your legacy, collapse into semantics
won't bare your teeth, won't clench your fist, won't walk away from your own funeral
and you won't die a second time, you won't live another life
you won't say another word.
we live our lives outside ourselves as if we were secondary
given time you'll realize that everything is temporary
and all our lives we brace our seats in anticipation of the end
and in doing so, we forget to live.
you're not immortal, just spout your morals and tell yourself it's working
scream by shout, peel away your throat, only as loud as the sound that carries you
and you won't die a second time, you won't live another life
you won't say another word.
we live our lives outside ourselves as if we were secondary
given time you'll realize that everything is temporary
and all our lives we brace our seats in anticipation of the end
and in doing so, we forget to live.
life is only hindered by your death.
the strumming of my strings is the beating of my chest
and the straining of my voice is the pumping of my breath,
i'll sing away my heart til you can't hear my song,
til you only hear the wind that my melody is carried on
the afterlife is calling and it's reaching for my soul,
but maybe death will finally tell me what we've all been living for,
and if this song is all that's remembered of me when I'm dead
then these may as well be the only words I've ever said.
I mean I'm tired, I mean I'm done.
