Dismantling Devotion Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level
1. A Life Less Lived (8:23)
White stained read
of vacant eyes
The hollow dreams
of a barren life
Saline soultions
yield no resolutions

Sleepwalk through
this pain induced
coma of wakefulness
My lungs draw air
but in this body
there is no life

Pale washed red
of crimson dreams
A lifeless glare
at a loveless world
Sanguine solutions
to hope's dissolution

Tomorrow's turmoil tonight
carbon mirrors of my yesterdays

Sleepwalk through
this life induced
coma of wakefulness
My lungs draw air
but in this body
there is no pain
2. Dead Air (5:23)
Indifference
the stale sound
of apathy
Twelve months
and we thin to nothing

We choke
on bitter words
we would never say
This span of autumns
brought no change

Apparations
hollow voice
ghost of us
Twelve months and
how frail this autumn leaves

I choke on bitter words
I would never say
This span of autumns
never changed
3. A Dream Resigned (7:28)
Around my waist
are the stones
I have tied
The weight
of choices made
Diverting thoughts
of a dream resigned

I repress
I evade
Total disregard
You bear the burden
and I will carry on

Throes of regret
that course through my mind
The pain
of careless ways
Divulging thoughts
of a dream resigned

I repress
I evade
Total disregard
You bear the burden
and I will carry on

The price we pay for
the things that haunt us
4. All We Had (6:54)
This pen
the cruelest blade
the power of
merciless words to endear
with clinched fist clinched teeth
and burning words
I take my leave

Embers
memories
charred remnants
of all that we had
the demise of
all we were

Wisdom
of futile years
affinity ceasing its wintering of me
a final look
one last glance
and burning words I take my leave

Embers
memories
charred remnants
of all that we had
the demise of
all we were
5. Solitary Refinement (5:23)
Distant voices clash
in this crowded room
words fade to din
here with you

Distant gazes cross
this empty room
and each moment aching
here with you
where I only feel more alone
6. Strive to See (6:39)
This deadlocked
our failure
draped in vows
a dead letter
an altar stripped
to the ground

To all things
we could not overcome
and all we lost
for all the faith that
we will cast aside
and all we lost along the way

Dead silence
that echoes
in our stare
dead endings
abandoned lives
in disrepair

To all things
we could not overcome
and all we lost
for all the faith that
we will cast aside
and all we lost along the way

Dissolving
in slow motion
this deathbed
of devotion
7. Lies That Bind (5:53)
Deafening
quiet
that falls on
blind hearts
unspoken
implicit
these words so

Faithless
and the lies that
bind us
with truth
disclosed by silence
a fragile trust
weathered and lost

Time may dull
but will never heal
scars hewn by
unspoken deception
and wordless honesty

Leaving nothing
but a broken life
a shattered lie
and all we had
lost

Time may dull
but will never heal
scars hewn by
unspoken deception
and wordless honesty
