I’m not touched by all of your accomplishments and by how you save the world ten times a day. Because once the lights go out and the last one leaves the stage you trade your capes in for the knives you’ve been trying to hide away. There’s something you’ve been missing out on all along, the bloodstains left a trail back to the doors you were coming from. Your prey just got suspicious, vultures are circling up above. You’ve been trying to fool them all too many times.
Now the ceiling starts to crack. You’re losing ground while holding back the frictions in your mind, the panic in your eyes. While the fractures start to multiply you have nowhere left to hide.
Don’t try to keep us waiting, don’t try to keep us safe. Your lectures aren’t helping we already got out of the cave.
Track Name: Make Your Marks
There was a sign that clearly read you’re about to make a fuckin‘ mistake but somehow I didn’t see and I just walked past. What’s the point of being smart when your knowledge doesn’t count, what’s the use of knowing things when they‘ re useless after all? So I’m trying to make sense of situations that I found myself in and never out, it’s pathetic and worn out. I never listened to this nagging voice inside my head that said „You’re doing it wrong, you’re fucking doing it wrong!“
To be honest with this, I’d be lying if I claimed that I was someone I am not. Sometimes it’s easier to just run around in circles and never look for the truth. But it’s always to be found at the bottom of your heart.
In the color under your skin. In the blink of your eyes. In the twists of your thoughts and in the alleys of your mind. In the marks that you make. In the scars that you leave. In the wounds that you heal and in the stories they reveal.
Maybe someday I will start to see things for what they really are but for today let’s just keep this box closed tight. Do me a favor and stick around tonight.
