Distilling The Lullaby

from by A Stagnant Motion



Here we are at the start again
Ironic that it's just all so antiquated
"Blaming yourself won't help her.
Hurting yourself by clawing dirt."

Do you find it harder to believe
When that's the only thing that you need?
You hurt yourself
Trying to figure it out
Just do yourself a favor

Just keep it coming
The empty bottle's comfort
Sometimes it's just nice to know
You're there. I know
It's just a one sided love
Something to hurt myself

Trying to figure it all out

I'm the dust that your breath gave life to
Now you have me on your hands

Just as it occurs to me
I've earned this lifelong sentence to lonely
Earning every bag of silver
Along my estranged direction

You keep me tethered
You keep me close
Despite my weathered body
And empty throat

Though you're not tangible
And I can't feel you
You are my memory
You can't escape no matter what you do
