Rotten Apple

Written by: Derek Chos

So on I run
Confidence unwavering
So on I run
Holding on

A path I tread
Lined with friendly corpses
A path I tread
Running on

A soothing song
Lullaby I've grown to live for
A soothing song
Singing on

Eternal peace
Goal I strive to live for
Eternal peace
Dreaming on

A betrayal
Reaching through the pieces
A betrayal
Fighting on

Like I'm looking underwater
The shifting views are so surreal
Sweet flesh of this rotten apple
Corruption that I feel

The words that I
Constantly release
The words that I
Hang on

So come along
Judas lives within me
So come along
Come on

Like I'm breathing underwater
Lungs burning for relief
Sweet flesh of this rotten apple
That I pluck from its nascent leaf

The cruel ways
Human act of kindness
The cruel ways
Live on

A labored breath
Rapid stuttered intake
A labored breath
Breathe on

Like I'm dying underwater
My flesh is stripped from the bone
Sweet flesh of this rotten apple
Taking my life all alone
