Track Name: Ghost
once the ghost had passed / the children played and ran / their shoes, they failed to last, / but their young minds began / they know when the silence comes

but, they were a ghost i couldn't see, / with parents fondly in love, / and toys buried under the tree / nothing came from above / they know when the silence comes
Track Name: Patchwork
oh, seraph from above came down / her fire burns brightly through her gown / my heart is not my own, / for she and i are together sewn

oh, seraph from above came down / lost not her beauty with her feathered crown / my heart is not my own, / for she and i are forever sewn
Track Name: Never Meant
let's just forget / everything said / everything we did / best friends and better halves / goodbyes / and the autumn night / when we realized / we were falling out of love

but we never did

not to be overly dramatic / i just think it's best, 'cause you can't miss what you forget / so let's just pretend everything and / anything between you and me was never meant
Track Name: His Death Shall Bring
and we whisper softly, our breath illuminated with / silken strands adorning a bereft throne upon soil / we respire harshly, our skin arrayed in silent white, / under blanket left behind in night as black as oil

we are: structured, subjected to a mold, / created as empyreally fit, / sculpted, faceless, with no identity / surely existence must be more than this?

yet each year we sink one ring deeper and / we draw shorter and shorter breaths until / our lungs are cut short and cease to function / entirely; we whisper no more, our / thrones upon soil toppled and atrophic / our beating hearts extinguished at the wick
Track Name: Becoming Nothing
with wires wrapped around your ears like vines / the alcohol and cigarettes turn your body cold and blind / with dreams of tongues that fill my tiny mouth / i can't open my eyes; when i do, only flies come out

stony brooks and stolen books that you have never read / all under the christmas tree, tied up with green thread

i went to the movie theater last new year's eve / bud was bought and guns were shot, but meaning came to leave / this simple and eloquent fact that is poking and teasing / this feeling that made you want to continue breathing

the trees all came alive, turned their bodies into rings / as i turn into nothing, while my body began to sing
