My AnchorI felt aloneMore Like This
So I lit a cigarette,
and smoked the memories away
As the smoke danced away,
you soaked my mind
Your laugh filled the empty ringing silence
And not even the tide
could wash you from my mind
you weighed my feet and pulled me to sea
With a struggling head, I took a breath
and accidentally breathed you in
DeathWhen I'm alone at night,More Like This
I hear a familiar knock upon my door
My body moving without thinking, I answer to this call
He is standing before me; as dark as the night he takes cover in
Floating in, he passes through me and I feel it hit once again
A ritual this is, yet one that extends as time passes
Sugar-coated promises drip from his lips
Infatuated with these oaths, I am drawn in
Blood or pain; I take my pick and play his game
Every night, I am warned of his danger
A love of adrenaline takes over
Infatuation with the unknown sets in
Dancing a dance of morbid romance,
I follow him underground where I know never be found
My DeathwishSome are deepMore Like This
Others are shallow
Lined up, neat as a pin
Cover it up, force a grin
Do not call me strong,
I do not have courage
This is no act of valor
Instead it is my deathwish
Glass Hearts and Slashed WristsI loved your beautiful liesMore Like This
And how happy you made me feel
Time has changed some things, my dear
You left my head spinning
I lost my sanity in the struggle
I used to seek sanctity in your arms
I used to hope you felt comfort in being mine
I wasn't enough; and you treated me so rough
You juggled my frail glass heart
In return, you offered a fraction of yours
The rest of it belonged to someone else
So you left me to bleed alone
Gone AgainGone again,More Like This
manic morning blue,
you're the one,
the only one,
I needed to see you.
All the words revolve
around the empty love.
The words, the words,
and the time.
how we lose it
(and lose you)
how we miss it
(and miss you)
when its gone.
It all means so much
it means all you left behind
is still here
waiting for me.
and what did you leave for?
Pretend no one knows, not even you.
I'll hear the name,
and see the face,
I'll know its you
but that can't fix
damage that's been done.
SometimesSometimes I think I've forgotten your name,More Like This
I search and look for hours,
But last night while out of my mind
I wrote it down,
surrounded by words of love and flowers,
What a funny secret, what a funny way
to fall in love with someone
and not know what to say.
Its a matter of misunderstanding,
a matter of asininity,
that makes one fall in love this way
and lose the longing to see.
TheyThey see the things you try to hide,More Like This
They know the secrets that you keep.
They watch you as you stumble,
And laugh whenever you fall.
Their eyes are filled with hatred
And fear of the unknown.
Their lips spill lies and rumors,
Words that beat you down.
Their hearts hold no compassion
For the desperate and the broken.
Their minds make you the enemy
When all you've done is try.
