Track Name: I: A Constant Yearning to Leave
the air is ripe
with hatred
the seas will swell
with requite
save your tongue
for misguided ears
the rope frays
your neck constricts

we “wretched” folk
we embattled
watch on as
the blood lets your body

my body
wont succum
to pressure
to conform

malicious words
built to maim
strips the sad
solders the hate

never feel
safe again
you have failed
at everything
Track Name: II: Motivated by Guilt
i will find you, broken and blistered.
i will nurse you, fickle and feeble mind.
i will run you through if you are not receptive to change.
there are no valleys nor mountains carved large enough
to hide your ignorance.
Track Name: III: A Steady Descent Into the Soil
atlast we meet
with familial embraces
old friend we have
skirted paths
for far too long

its time,
for these years of suffering
to wither and weap
its time you know
just how cruel
this world’s become

there is
no place for me,
amongst the hordes of hate and hurt
everyone’s a threat,
and every fear
has been proven real

you speak
“it’ll comes in waves, the nausea
and though your bones may splinter and break
i will become your eyelids
so i may bring
you some reprieve”

take my organs
take my blood flow
strip the flesh
from my brittle broken bones

as the tides rise
as the wind dies
as the earth spins
we account for nothing

the new growth cast out
the old leaves
as the ground
consumes our bodies
i’ve always known
i was born to
become one
with the soil
