The silence before regret and I’ve not even spoken yet but just like the deepest cut blood takes it’s time to show up I’m always wrong still facing the same damn problems and i don’t solve them I’m just sweeping them under carpets Now we are a sandwich and hate is the filling the taste i can’t stand it but I just keep eating I’m always wrong still facing the same damn problems and I don’t solve them and they won’t stay under these carpets Think that i just might be the devil the walls drain all my hope and rage it grips and chokes I’m hearing explosions, seeing ghosts My skin it burns like coal I bargain for my soul Muscles make hostages of my bones paralyse my vocal chords the dark envelops all And all my hope. And all my hope.

Disorientated again, sick to my stomach Once again a screw up, egg shells for feet, fragile walk and what was once a hug is starting to feel more like a choke hold promised not to pick at it but this scar never gets old sugar coated words but teeth so sharp they cut through bone and they turn on each other casualties, blood, bodies grow and though my shovels blunt with all the love I have I’ll dig this hole It’s never deep enough, our regret alone will overflow Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason This baggage never goes, we hold hold too tight we choke stay low Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason This baggage never goes, lets hold hold too tight stay miserable Maybe I’m the reason, Maybe you’re the reason This chaos never goes, just hold that grudge Stay miserable Got my shovel, I’ve got my hole. I have got my shovel, I’ve got my hole…

Okay, since we’re being honest... After it all, outside of the chaos No sense to be found, clarity opaque I’m not pure of heart Promised not to make it worse, make better decisions I couldn’t keep my word I deserved defeat I didn’t tell you when I was afraid Hid myself from you just pushed you away Couldn’t satisfy the destruction I craved When all you gave was love and I deserve less than what I have received the void left behind bitterness that I keep Oh i didn’t listen let anger take me when all you gave was love All i gave was “up” I’m not pure of heart

We consistently age forever changing take me old if you want me, old if you want me take me old Oh these youthful days, what was once now fading take me old if you want me, old if you want me take me old ‘cos one day I may not have the cognitive ability to even tie my shoes or reach to brush my teeth and if your still with me and i keep you from getting Just know that I am grateful, though those words I may not speak and I may forget faces, names, our favourite memories but know my heart is full and in it your love I will keep but if I am too late to make it too the toilet seat I’d do the same for you if it meant more time we could keep Take me old
