i couldn’t breath i couldn’t fall i couldn’t feel anything at all just that sick that your stomach feels when you think you just got caught i looked inside of my own head i saw the other side instead it was staring back at me shaking its head in disbelief

it’s me again i said oh i thought that you were dead
no i just had to go away to figure out what i had left
it’s good to see you again i swore that you were dead
i swear that myself sometimes i guess

i came out on the other side i never met a cure i didn’t try
well at least half-tried i guess but that’s still better than half the rest it’s just not every day you meet The once so great and future me to set me straight to fight my fight until i get this living right


from before the silence breaks, released August 1, 2016
