These days of suffering & regret I know, you're insular in the extreme When 20/20 hindsight fails I know, you're insular in the extreme You play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again & I'm thrown away... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection To strike this ego-centric pose These days of suffering & regret It's a sin, I'm a fake, you knoe I'm a liar These days of suffering & regret You play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again To play the martyr once again & I'm thrown away... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) (I'm sorry now, that you come off as vain & stale) (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) I'm sorry now... Complex Relevance Frailty Resurrection Complex Elegance Fealty Resurrection I know you search for something else I know that this is not the end... (I'm sorry now, that you are not as whole) (that you are not as whole) (that you are not as whole...)

Embrace the nothingness Call this exhaustion You are the brightest star So why do you lie? It's not so elemental No force of nature now I'll feed you gravity So you won't float away... Another Razorblade Another Heartworm You know the truth will out So why do you lie? It's not too relevant You're not so instrumental Your new mistake leaves scars like nothing else You're not the only one...

Something subtle out of the corner of my eye Under the glass in this charade While we were underneath this fawning summers sky... flesh elastic We dance unguided through the death of the new machine Absolution's a kiss away Kill the queen, kill the guards, bring out the guns... I'm so impressed by this twilight I'm overawed by the touch of you Flesh elastic I'm so impressed by this twilight I'm overawed by the touch of you You are the sword You are the gun You are my weapon You are the one...

Something else Something never there Something overground Something to feel numb to Lately I've been contemplating It's only skin... Inside this breathing cage This bleeding chamber machine punches through Like e, like "wire", the fist that moves These chains define me Lately I've been contemplating It's only skin...

You said suffrage, Was not the end You said celibacy, seemed a worthy but flawed & impossible dream Here we sit, guests at the wake, conducting our own post-mortem Here we sit, lying that we all feel comfortable with this... I'm sorry I miss you I'm sorry I missed you The world seemed brighter with you around, Why did you go?

Never could ever be anywhere straight... You were in that fight again Don't think that I'd complete you You were in that fight again Equate this suffering with the heart You were in that fight again Never let the world defeat you You were in that fight again Knew you were damaged from the start It's my Release, It's my addiction Let the fun & games begin It's my relief, It's my religion Don't say anything at all You're only halfway closer to god If I though that you were unstable A new world of skin & hurt & love It's insane, It's comtempt, Let it all fall apart... Let it all fall apart. You were in that fight again Behind this broken battered sun You were in that fight again So, pristine, although I'm flawed You were in that fight again Falling down is almost fun You were in that fight again I can't help it if I'm flawed.. . It's my Release, It's my addiction Let the fun & games begin It's my relief, It's my religion Don't say anything at all You're only halfway closer to god If I though that you were unstable A new world of skin & hurt & love It's insane, It's comtempt, Let it all fall apart... Let It all fall apart NO LIFE Let it all fall apart NO LOVE Let it all fall apart NO INNOCENCE Let it all fall apart...
