i don’t want it, i don’t need it, give it to me
hemorrhage desire for the unattainable
everything in front of me, all that i fucking see
is a mirror image of an inhibition

abused bell of empathy
rings hollow
fewer lines of bullshit i
can swallow

sickened by reality
got no love in me
bled dry by humanity
the rope swings

circumstance defines being
branches grow fruitless
god is a refugee
she lives within me

spirit imprisonment
self-imposed (choked down the key)
sewer drain birthed me into
my death throes

sickened by reality
got no love in me
surrendered humanity
the rope stills


from PURGE, released October 30, 2016
