Track Name: bruised knees
on the floor, bruising bone;
floating euphoric, tear-soaked over
your voice on the phone
sleepy calm from soothing tones

disoriented, lying on the hardwood
i will always be a parasite
he will always inhabit my world like a corrupt lord
i feed off his words
and use my body as an anchor

"cut it off, break the ties,
rid yourself of his toxic lies;"
i'm a wreck
all i want is love
using carnal flesh to imitate affection

(i am weak, i am selfish,)
Track Name: frostbite eyes
detached, cool to the touch,
maybe you're just as rotten as me
but you've preserved yourself in the cold
buried yourself in the snow
you won't become rancid as i do

this room is freezing, it reminds me of you:
your eyes filled with frostbite gazed at me and i knew.

(i'm so selfish—i deserve to rot with the worms, i deserve,)

i'll watch from a distance
as you fall in love, blossom,
tread on me
my body sinking lower into the mud 'til i cannot breathe
