I loved you enough
To stay silent.
I love myself enough

Young and naive,
That's what you called me.
I should have known then.
I should have known,
But I still cannot believe
That you would be the one
To rape me of that youth,
Penetrate my innocent mind with venality
Force depravity down my throat
And then leave me naked and vulnerable
Lying alone in the grass on the side of the road
In what was left of the illusion of disbelief

Welcome to The Shift,
Where every fiber of your soul has been preparing for this,
Where dark and light combine and angels and demons kiss,
Where conscious meets unconscious and truth meets every question that exists
We didn't forget, we were blinded by a false reality
Conforming every day to generic human monotony
'Wouldnt it be great,' we thought, 'if someday we could jus...

Since the day you shattered my soul
The shell of my body sits
Hunched over in the pouring rain
On a rusty bus stop bench seat;
And I give away the pieces
To every person I meet,
Watch the shards glisten
As they disappear in front of me,
And listen to the rain drop
As I wait anxiously
In desperate anticipation of the day
That there is nothing left
And I may finally depart gracefull...

The truest love
Fate forced apart,
Though, because they shared a heart,
He worked on he,
She worked on she,
Till they loved themselves
How beautifully tragic.

You always wanted me to talk
And now that you've shut me up
I have so much to say
I have so much to say.

When you pulled back the bow string
Until I reached a point of safety.
The arrow caught up with me there.

If there were no more trees,
Would you deny there ever were?
Could you still believe in wind,
Could you still believe in air,
If the branches stopped swaying
Because the trees weren't there?

The only thing
In my life
That didn't feel like
Everything in my life
Is making me feel like
This entire time
The only illusion

Here I am again
Ugly crying in my car
Rain pelting the windshield
Tears pelting the paper
I dont know anymore
What is the point of loving
What is the point of living
Even if I were to get to where you are?
I now comprehend the existence of religion.
We would all go crazy
If even for a moment we were to find
That there is no point to all of this.
