about

from rehearsal tape recorded 8/29/14

sketch of a song from an upcoming extended play

lyrics

each day
you chase the common ecstasy
remaining ever poised upon collapse
each day
a desperate glimpse of agony
the faith that you forever fail to grasp

but that's just fate
and it only gets worse now
as false hope grows every day

muses wilt
in this distorted elegance
we wander in the gardens of despair
where blooms of guilt
corsages of our ill intent
adorn the sordid garments that we wear

but that's just fate
and it only gets worse now
as false hope grows every day

and there we find
the source of longing
the vine that bears the fetid fruit of life
which ever grows
as does our longing
and all the while
and all the while

voices speak
with no emotion
faces stare
with feigned expression
disguising pain as joy
an endless string of empty vows and disappointments
no thought of love
no color in the sky

but that's just fate
and it only gets worse now
as false hope grows every day
