Solway Firth

Today, up on this hill, I’m counting all the killers
They sway as they swarm, a look of gluttons in their eyes
They mutter as the body loses warmth
They pick your bones like locks inside a tomb
And take great care to not take care of YOU
HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
 
While I was learning to live, we all were living a lie- I guess you got what you wanted
So I will settle for a slaughterhouse soaked in blood and betrayal
It’s always somebody else… somebody else was me- you want the real smile?
Or the one I used to practice, not to feel like a failure?
I don’t need you to do it for me/I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me/ I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story/I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away… HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
 
I’m not ahead of my time- I just drew the first breath- If I’m alive tomorrow
I will alleviate the pressure… by cutting you out of me
I found my bottom line- dead on the front lines- I know I’ll never go home
So set fire to your ships and past regrets and be free
I don’t need you to do it for me/I don’t need you to understand
I don’t need you to hide it from me/ I just want to feel like any other man
I won’t show you the whole story/I won’t show you the aftermath
I won’t show you my allegory
Don’t look away… HERE’S AN UNEXPLAINABLE ONE
WHAT HAVE YOU DONE?
 
While I was learning to live, you taught me how to die- I guess I got what I wanted
Another needle in the back through purified scarification
It wasn’t somebody else- you fucking did it to me.
You want a real smile?
I haven’t smiled in years.
