I'm trying to get away,
Put distance between us,
Because I'm breaking to be this close.
You kept pulling back,
Weighing me down and waiting,
For something less.
Just a side effect of dying,
Fighting reapers off our minds,
Haunted by seeing your face in mine,
Aren't we all just passing time.
In this house the halls echo,
I know you feel trapped,
Reaching out to no one.
You said "just take me away,
kick the chair from my feet".
You're being dragged under,
But it's my bones that break.
I'm trying to keep up pace,
To stop me falling to pieces,
Because I'm chained to the same house.
I used to watch my shadow, but now i just see ghosts.
I'm used to feeling homesick, but now I'm sick of being home.
If you found your mother dead,
Would you wear her skull on your head,
Would you wear her heart on your sleeve,
Will you fight so I don't forget you?
