lyrics

i call myself the king of nowhere
least of all the mind i dwell
but if i could choose one dominion
i’d shack up in some shit motel

i’d gather all my loyal subjects
of half spun chords and loose ideas
and mold them into a perfect people
a magnum opus of mass appeal

do you see
what’s killing me
may actually keep me alive?

i am just the faint reminder
of a love so simple to forget
so when you strike up conversation
i tell you that i’m not there yet

i hold that the word forgiveness
means i could never live without
so i would rather hold my grudges
than spend a life consumed by doubt

do you see
what’s killing me
may actually keep me alive?

what’s done is done
a setting sun
has no obligation to rise

i can’t spot a violet in a bed of roses
for that i blame my eyes
see an open door
another one is closing
between them is wasted time

i was raised to bury boxes
within which all my troubles lay
i held on to one labeled anger
i view its contents every day

i am but a lamprey dining
on blood so sweet it rots my spine
years spent serving false devotion
mean as much as cheap goodbyes
