lyrics

Cleanse my veins of this dirt
A life lead in solitude
An existence spent unheard

Can you understand me?
Fear pulsing through every breath I take
Every word I say; like I never learnt to speak.

Chaos in my thoughts
I feel the same

This dreary winter animus
Will never end

This dreary winter animus
Will never end

Unrelenting questions
The mist drags me under
With every idea I conjure
Snatched away before my very eyes

There's a thief
In my mind
And they elude me

They elude me

I glance back at a memory
Where I hadn't lost the means to think
A vision of the past
That plagues me in my sleep

And the dirt is all I taste
I know I did this to myself
And forever I will live in disappointment
For putting myself in this hell

My own hell

But I still stand with an open embrace
The flame licks at my face
And I feel the heat melt away at my skin
And I stand unshaken

The bond between my mind and its experience
Grows strong from my sense of self entitlement
And I remember, every day, if sanctum is what I seek
My words are the only key

Sentience
I long for more
Awoken
These wounds will bleed no longer
Sentience
Engulf me in emotion
Awoken

I grasp on to every
part of life that keeps me human
My leash is growing longer
I yearn to be free
From the smog
That covers my judgement
Break me from these shackles

I ask for my veins to be cleansed
but this dirt isn't all I breathe
In all of this confusion
I have come to the realisation
All I seek is the will to clearly think.
