lyrics

I never hold my breath

So now I wallow
In a stagnant home
Been hollowed out
To where the opposites roam

The stench of lying
Lay upona your breath
Deflector gain another
Partner in death

Upon reflection I can see your face
All of my transgressions
Manifest in place

It never ceases to amaze me
how it all broke down
A true defenestration
Of a pointless crown

Defected deserter
I’m a turn coat man
Snitching to the enemy your
Filthy plans
Perfected performer
of the modern man
Go crying to the mother, she will
Understand

Submissive
And I’m past the point of no return
No answers
That are ever gonna help you learn

The ocean
parted for a little while
Not long enough
To let me ever see your smile

You kept on pushing through
the first blockade
Provide the pressure
And apply no aid

Save all your excuses
for a rainy days
Cos they’re just around the corner
Yeah they’re on their way

Defected deserter
I’m a turn coat man
Snitching to the enemy your
Filthy plans
Perfected performer
of the modern man
Go crying to the mother, she will
Understand

The deepness swallows and
You start to drown
As you scramble to the surface
You remember the sound
And you draw all the attention
Far Away from yourself
You were basking in the shadow
In acquaintance’s wealth
If you offered helping hands
I’d have to bite them off
I would never let you think
You built me better off
And now all of my epiphanies
Divulge the mirage
I’m the infant in disguise
Who started taking charge
And all of my epiphanies
Divulge the mirage
They divulge the mirage

I never hold my breath

And now I wallow
In a stagnant home
Been hollowed out
To where the opposites roam

The stench of lyin
Lay upon your breath
Deflector gain another
Partner in death

Upon reflection I can see your face
All of my transgressions
Manifest in place

It never ceases to amaze me
how it all broke down
A true defenestration
Of a pointless crown

Defected deserter
I’m a turn coat man
Snitching to the enemy your
Filthy plans
Perfected performer
of the modern man
Go crying to the mother, she will
Understand
