Empty Words

Moving along in the heat
That has defined my life
I don’t believe I’m done
Cut my throat beside my empty words

I saw your face deep inside a thought
Reminds me of the battles we once fought
And the lesson that I had been taught
That I still try to pretend isn’t there

But it seems as though it’s almost been a century
A hundred years since I’ve married the thief
But it could not matter much to me
Since my prayers traveled on hot dead air

Moving along in the heat
That has defined these wars
There’s just no way I’m done
Spill my blood to wash these empty words

I’m only brave when you’re far away
To fantasize about my way
But I see it coming, I can see the day
Where I can walk without my fear of you

If you came running, I can’t say what I’d do
To take you back or stay away from you
I know I gave my firsts to you
But I’ve got my pride to help me through

Moving along in this heat
That will define my past
I can’t say when I’ll be done
Take my life to birth these empty words

Take my hand, it’s gonna be a rough ride
Through passion, and all the things you made me hide
My brain is twisting and my sight is clearing
And my memory’s dimming and I can’t see what I’m fearing

Moving along in this heat
Forever defining
I think I’m almost done
Born again inside these empty words

Moving along in this heat
It’s all I’ve ever known
I pray I’m almost done
Speaking once again these empty words
