lyrics

i bite my nails to the quick
just to tell myself that it's okay
i chew through my cheeks
just to cope today
i move southward along a body
mangled made of flesh and bone
i didn't know, we didn't know, you didn't know
you never took me seriously
so i took myself down
tore into every unbroken thing
that made me good and whole
and still you let me drown,
yes you stole what was left
of my unraveled sanity
that quickly crumbled to an
addled mess, at best
calamity came next
slowing to a crawl
time neglected all my vain attempts to build this wall
i'm overwrought, overwrought and under-sought
oh, cosmonaut
please tell me that you have not forgot

have you ever felt like this?

i treasure my loneliness
but this has just gone too far
i didn't ask for this emptiness
i simply wanted room to hide my scars
i had everything i needed in life except humility
i didn't mean to shut you out
with such repetitive rapidity i didn't need-
i always wondered how i'd feel about this in the end
if i'd look back and say "it was just a phase"
or if i'd pour another gin
i don't know why i
try so incredibly hard to
come up with rhythms and rhymes that
i like and i try out of spite
without ever knowing what the words do
what's the use, this self-deprecation?
i'm a nation of one, population zero
'cause i'm not here, oh
i just want to be done
sometimes when i lie awake at night
staring blankly at the ceiling i consider
peeling off all this unknown flesh,
this anonymous skin, that has destroyed me from within
but in it i can't help but remember
all these poems that i've wrought,
where i think i'm home
but i'm not
