Lyrics By: Josh Spurling
Spinning faster, we see through glass darkly. Wind in hair and butterflies. Merry goes 'round and lava surrounds. We close our eyes, hold on tight. My hands, they look so strong, but I could not hold on. The Nothing has come.
Reaching higher, we do conspire to kick a hole through the sky. Released the chains that enslave our brains, so it's high time that we all fly. My shadow looks so tall as I brace for the fall. The Nothing is all.
Fake it 'till you break it. Alive to survive. Unleash the clown inside. I painted that smile upon myself. Oh, the little lies we tell ourselves. Don the mask and join the masses. Wake up in the morning with another piece of soul missing. Repeat to yourself, "This is only a test." Oh, the little lies we tell ourselves.
There's a rumor going 'round in this one-horse town. We stole a glimpse right through the facade. Tie a cloth across your eyes, an impenetrable disguise. Fall on your knees for an invisible god. Now the lure of true love's kiss become a slit across your wrist, and your eyes are no longer deaf. An awakening in the brain sets you apart from the sane. You've got to laugh when it's all you've got left.
We clawed our way out of the shell. Oh, the little lies that we tell ourselves. Deliver us unto this hell. Oh, the little lies that I tell myself.
And what did you expect to find down the rabbit hole, inside the wardrobe, at the end of the rainbow? There's nothing in the looking glass but you. Only you.
Lyrics By: Josh Spurling
How can we come back from this unscathed? Battered and broken, our bodies bathed in regret. Can't reset. The clock keeps ticking on and on after we're gone. Your body's floating out to sea, but it's me who's drowning.
As you walked through the sea of snakes, like a fool I thought I'd keep you safe. The stakes were high, and I know we all must die. Mistakes were mine. I cannot cut the ties.
For a year and a day, seasons change, you decay. Jackals come, jackals go, leave with your soul. Neither cry, nor sing. Broken fingers stroke the strings. Cannot sing, cannot cry as your body lies.
Shuffling off to Hell, I've come undone, but I have no penny underneath my tongue. You are just a shade, and the debt must be paid, but obsession drives my song to be sung. How can I go back when all I've loved has turned to black?
Playing for the devil takes its toll, and all I've got to lose is your soul. Mercy, like a flash, lights up the sky which only illuminates the swarm of lies.
How can I come back with you on faith? Shake the devil's hand and the past erased.
Eyes closed. Wide open.
