Tears burn lines down your face.
Those tears become the fire that is
Your cries fall silently.
Every night you scream into your
As all this swallows you whole.
Your fear is suffocating.
It tears wide open your soul.
You are falling to submission.
You are drawing lines on your skin.
You just want escape.
You just want release.
For you the gallows are calling.
Night is falling.
Twilight finds you wanting.
So enticing is the desire of despair.
It is saturating you.
Weighing you down.
You are drowning.
You can no longer keep your head up.
You are slipping 'neath the surface.
And fading to black.
Hope has become so foreign.
The innocence you lost.
With a whisper in your ear.
You pull bear the veins.
That whisper becomes a scream.
This is becoming your last resort.
Where you are hiding.
Deeper you are sinking.
There is no escape now, not for you.
The lie becomes the truth you see.
And all Heaven is crying for you.
As you slip between another crack
in the floor.
