lyrics

dispose of this distance
it's closed in too quickly once again
the dose of this close up was up too high
every monk and murderer with their soul left out to dry

yelling for a way out when the silence was it

black and white doldrums shatter
and disembalm some blue moon youth
weaving wings on tight ropes and seams

changes, hope, and doubt
these are the things that can shut a man in
'till he can't get out

get out, get out, get the hell out my head
yelling for a way out
when all along the silence was it

so the mannequin is always
talking in tongues at the trials
laughing in daydreams
with happy sins

consequence claims its victims
in charismatic ruin
and offers comfort within its rubble
scattered like the somber pieces
of a broken dream catcher

face to face with empty space
locked in a staring match
searching for words that won't be erased
when all along the silence was it

so the mannequin is always
talking in tongues at the trials
laughing in daydreams
wiping your soul clean
hold your tongue

don't soil your tired hands
digging your own grave
all this vanity is insanity
tethered far from reality

we're compelled to an infrared
hell bred snare that resembles us
the mutts and mongrels growing gray
but they gave themselves away

hold your breath and hope for something more to come
let go of the home that fell apart
you won't be cold and morbid for long
