  • Breathing an air,
    permeated, soaked in darkness,
    emanating from within,
    resonating like a scream no one can hear

    I wear this chaos well.
    Though none should save me,
    desperation keeps me here,
    my need for innocence,
    the place where I began
    The abyss becomes me,
    I wear this chaos well.

    Are these not words of heresy
    a venom on my lips, a poison?
    My spirit impurified
    in everything I choose to say

    With you I stand in hope that
    god will save us from ourselves.
    Every cry a wasted moment
    until another day is lost.
    Even lands we once called home
    lie undiscovered and unknown.
    Only heaven's silence for an answer.
    And did our laughter, did our tears
    have some purpose after all?
    Did we toil in vain in hope
    that wisdom came from what we'd done?
    Even lands we once called home
    lie undiscovered and unknown.
    Only heaven's silence for an answer.

    Are these not words of heresy
    a venom on my lips, a poison?
    My spirit impurified
    in everything I choose to say

    If I would shed my skin, the layers left,
    but not the lessons learned
    it would not undo what I have done
    or grant forgiveness in some better days.
