lyrics

The weight of thoughts collapse my chest
Wake to memories trying to confess
Dreams dance over fire without peace
Caskets filled with my casualties
I walk these empty streets of my broken mind
Search for what’s pulled me down

I feel the demons preaching, in this consulate of teaching
And this curse is a reaping, in my demon house

Stationary statues that wither in the wind
The road we all travel comes to its very end
Worthless in purpose at my present state
Thoughts collapse my open mind from self-hate

I wrote these stories down in my head
I spoke in verse and painted the scenes
I watched the stories speak to the dead
I made the sun rise and empires crumble

The weight of thoughts collapse my chest
Wake to memories trying to confess
Dreams dance over fire without peace
Caskets filled with my casualties

I feel the demons preaching, in this consulate of teaching
And this curse is a reaping, in my demon house

Stationary statues that wither in the wind
The road we all travel comes to its very end
Worthless in purpose at my present state
Thoughts collapse my open mind from self-hate

I wrote these stories down in my head
I spoke in verse and painted the scenes
I watched the stories speak to the dead
I made the sun rise and empires crumble

Not again, not again. I'm on the front line of my mind
Not again, not again. i can't sleep unless the words rhyme
Here again, here again. Lonely drives and a wandering mind
Here again, here again. Lonely drives and a wandering mind
The weight of thoughts collapse my chest
Wake to memories trying to confess
Dreams dance over fire without peace
Caskets filled with my casualties

I will make peace with the war inside my mind

I wrote these stories down
I spoke in verse and painted the scenes
I watched these stories speak
I made the sun rise
