This piece is about wanting to extract the poisonous misery from someone loved, and the struggle of confronting the situation. It features distorted violin, instead of guitar.



Monumental figure of my youth
Sits stationary on the worlds slow turn
Abandon this drudgery
Find the peace with which you yearn

Eyes open beneath snow
I offer frostbitten hands to dig you out
Can't get the words past the lump in my throat
And it sinks

Enveloped by the mist from tears
Fever embellished woe
Sadness encased by the skin you're in
Discard the hero, release the human
He whom I wish to know

Dispel the shackles of your torment
Stray from your desolate plight
Relinquish your sadness unto me
Bleed on me

Here we sit, together, in silence
No words said, yet many read;
I bleed the blood from those veins;
I've inherited your pain;
I'm a shadow in your solitary existence
And a shadow I'll remain

With open arms that close in on nothing
Retreat back to the place where we weep.
