It's The Hardest To Write When There's
Nothing But Momentum Driving The Misery.
- Every Single Day is The Same -
Each Limb Protruding From My Torso, Which
May as Well Just Be Headless Flesh and Muscle.
- Wouldn't Make a Difference -
I am Destined To Dust, as are We all, The Impact
I Have Created Will Follow Me Only To Soil.
- The Decaying of Empathy-

At The Exact Same Time With The Same Voice.
- Somebody Set Me Free -

Covered in Cloudy Residue, Wondering Where it Went.
- You Have Nothing -

- Maybe Death Will Verify My Existence -
- Just Like She Did -
