lyrics

do you want to be afraid
of death
like i have been afraid

cause you can only live so long
before
you are dead and gone
it’s true

now there is a window wide
fixed unto
a burning countryside

it seems like no one’s picked it up
our need
for lilac buttercups

to heed our call
and jump through waterfalls
to drag us down
to where we can’t be found
at all

it creeps up on me soullessly
and it flows
like an unholy stream

that exorcises deep beneath
a path
of unrequited dreams
unseen

before misleading miscreants
malaise
foreboding malcontents

so i will never be relieved
of this death
that lives inside of me

it grows and grows
and takes over my home
it speaks to me
words i cannot breathe

and it goes:
I AM NOT MY OWN
I AM NOT MY OWN
THIS IS NOT MY HOME
I AM NOT ALONE
I AM NOT MY OWN
I AM NOT MY OWN
