in a second, we walked ten years away from what we used to be
claiming the reasons why made any sense at all
but what is real never looks how it feels
and so i knew that you’d never hear my voice again
i kept on choking while you disposed of every ounce of your mercy

my thoughts are wrapped around wrapped concern everytime i remember
how you were always the one who was dying
and i was always the one who was dead

we were a figment envisioned in relapse
absent reflections have forced us to look back
everything’s the same when nothing’s in the way
only black and white
how you see the world
and what i think i know

this distance will let us breathe in once i leave for the last time

stop believing that we can somehow rebuild what will no longer stand

ten years have passed
and i have counted each second
there never was a reason to claim
we ever felt anything other than hate

i have unwrapped all of my thoughts from concern
for now i know
that in the end there’s only death
