Lyrics (The Paper Mache ep)

‘SECOND SKIN’

The past is a skeleton,

carved in clay, in time constructed,

Only to fall away.

I buried old scars, over these miles,

that your words had laid.

Spoke in silence,

While I watched the world decay.

Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.

Finding fault,

Only leads to blame.

A collision course of the mind,

Built high enough to feel no pain.

I will begin again.

I will free this skin.

The past is a skeleton,

carved in clay, in time constructed,

Only to fall away.

I buried old scars, over these miles,

that your words had laid.

Spoke in silence,

While I watched the world decay.

Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.

Everything you bought and sold.

A cage we made,

To confine ourselves.

Finding fault,

Only leads to blame.

A collision course of the mind,

Built high enough, to feel no pain.

I will begin again.

I will flee this skin.

Was it the symptom,

Or the cure?

Did these feelings condemn you,

Or control.



‘SAMSARA’

Reaching for the sun,

Aware of all that’s been done,

To block out the light,

From my faded view.

Hidden signs appear to direct, me.

Down a storm of, intrigue,

Into this center of my darkest fears.



CUTTING TEETH

“Souls divide,

Red stained,

Than bleached in white.

When did the voice inside your head, All but give up this fight?

There is nowhere left to run,

Nowhere to hide.

So, through this tunnel I walked, faster,

Further into the light.

Cutting Teeth,

Broke my spirit, on it’s back

Disarmed my senses,

And made this, the final pact.



“PARACHUTE”

Tired of the tracks,

that led me here.

These steep trails, that got the best of me,

have now covered themselves,

Where the rubber once met the road.

And all the footprints,

I tried to leave behind.

Had rotted, disappeared.
