from even out by Esoteric Tapioca



it seems like all my plans are useless
drained of my creative juices
designed around the curse of flesh
the tissue I pulled back instead of
working hard at shoulders cried-on
someone that you could rely on
heart wrung dry and you're still crying
eye to eye can't see I'm trying
I can't be a sheep in pasture
saying after ending that you're done

sighing, holding hands are wringing
you don't hear the thoughts I'm singing
you can't feel my heart expanding
never know the words I'm chanting
all the things I see in beauty
know and love her, perfect to me
icy forms to hold a flame for nothing
as you stake the claim
you're done

I will always love the way you
hurt me then make it okay to
the blade you swing to cut my heart up
ending things you never started
you'll always have a place, my lover,
wasting time to write another
song about conditions to you
you don't care what it means, do you

done with being blamed for nothing
done collecting scars and rusting
done absorbing your depression
done being someone's possession
done refracting ultimatums
done distracting you from making
your life what you want it to be
acting like it's nothing to me
