1.
Copperfield 03:22
I can make the world disappear, turn it into silence, ashes that we leave behind here, turn them into diamonds. I can make the world disappear, (but) nothing's nothing, too.
2.
Paralyzed 02:26
Use windows like they're mirrors. Soon a face will appear. You've made it a career. You're a prisoner here, lonely and paralyzed by fear, like every single time you hoped you'd disappear. I'm not going to help you. I'm not going to save you, but you won't let me be.
3.
At the end of your life, you were worried about how I would live mine. Even when you're a light, you can choose not to shine in the darkest of times. It's okay to want to die, but you can't hide from every subsequent new life. I can love you today, but I can't guarantee that you will be safe. Still, you can't be destroyed by anything else, not even yourself. Though, you really tried to do all could. In a dream, my shadow came to me wearing the skin of my enemy.
4.
Blowing kisses into the abyss and it is someone else's problem now... and then, phone it in to fein lip servicing. I'm not going to help you. I'm not going to save you, but you won't let me be. And now you couldn't give it away or pay someone else to take it, beautiful, useless, full of excuses. I'm not going to help you. I'm not going to save you, but you won't let me be.
5.
Is there something wrong with me if I hate to see you happy, and everything feels empty? Is there something wrong with me when you tell me that it's nothing, but I cannot let that dog sleep? No one thinks about you even half as much as you think that they do. Find a way to love when you feel lonely. Find a way to love when you feel nothing. Find a way to love in spite of everything.
6.
I felt betrayed by my own insides, and I felt shame when I prayed that you'd die. But I don't want to feel anything at all if I don't have to, cause it can be so cruel. I should be patient, and eat the ancient carrion, my wayward son. But I don't want to be anything at all if I don't have to, (still) nothing's nothing too.
7.
I see a Desert Spine from my window. I hear a broken mind when I lay my head on the pillow. In a dream my shadow came to me, wearing the skin of my enemy, telling me, "sometimes things can seem like an eternity." I saw myself inside of my own life. My liquid crystal light had frozen me for a time. In a dream my shadow came to me, wearing the skin of my enemy, telling me, "sometimes things can seem like an eternity."
8.
Take Me 01:57
Take the dirt I'm standing on. Take the virgin snow. Take the earth fracked with accounts hacked, and show me where to go. I laid waste at a break-neck pace. I was waging war. I will grind myself like a corpse. It's a habit, just being dramatic, no reason to panic. Take my blood and ugly lungs. Take my guts out too. Take this flood of empty thoughts, and tell me what to do. I laid waste at a break-neck pace. I was waging war. I will grind myself like a corpse.
9.
Does it get lonely spending all of your time in the future? Even the past became a painfully dull architecture. No one thinks about you even half as much as you think that they do. Tighten your grip and it will break you apart like a cancer, and you have been tricked into believing it gets you an answer. I laid waste at a break-neck pace. I was waging war. I will grind myself like a corpse. No one thinks about you even half as much as you think that they do.
10.
I don't blame you. There's nothing to do. I can't cry when I need to. Every time I think I found it, I am wrong. It's a habit just being dramatic, no reason to panic. Every time I think I found it I am wrong/lonely and paralyzed by fear, like every single time you hoped you'd disappear. I don't need anyone. I don't need anything. I'll be fine on my own, at least I'd like to think so.
