Bitter Grey

lyrics

in a second it stops
try to slip away
the clock ticks nonstop
decay, things lost
and i’m grey with bitterness and
time, ruptured experience
make me the monster my mother couldn’t see
the sight of your broken flesh triggers helpless feelings, you selfish being
i’ve been empty
yet drain more each day at the thought of you
the one who cared for me

and now my skin is a bitter grey
since the moment she ran away
never wanted for me to stay
rationality led astray
and every day is another day
only she made me feel this way
and i’ve got nothing more to say

and i don’t know you
just don’t know you anymore
tried to call you, tried to save myself
i can’t help this

and now my skin is a bitter grey
since the moment she ran away
never wanted for me to stay
rationality led astray
and every day is another day
only she made me feel this way
and i’ve got nothing more to say

i can’t help this
