lyrics

Another chapter poorly scribed
The author tries to shred the page
But the paper’s razor edge
Leaves his fingers sore and bleeding
But this story begs completion
And these words won’t write themselves

They must not go unwritten lest
His years of toil be lost to waste
The heaviest burden is his will
To put to paper all his fears
And let them stare him in the eye
And wrap their tendrils ‘round his neck
Screaming

How did I let this slip away?
Perhaps this bottle holds a clue
My gun is asking questions now
Perhaps I’ll let it ask them of you

One lie
One thousand tears
One thousand lies
One death

The sun
Departs
Still he sits
Laboring in vain
To mend his damaged words
And will the ink to leave the page
