lyrics

Scraped back lips unveil
tar stained teeth
in a ritual display
of hollow acknowledgement.

Gestures of futility
traded back and forth;
used to add meaning
to a shit life on a shit planet.
All the while screaming
and beating fists bloody
on conjectures in burning minds.

I thought summer would make me less bitter.
Sobriety was supposed to be a positive change.

I was never able to forget what
it feels like to hate.

I want to slash my own throat
I want to watch the arterial spray
glistening in the summer sun
as it stains your shirt.
I want to see your smile fade.

I want to slash my own throat
I want to watch the arterial spray.
