don't quote dickens in my apartment

from by false colours



from the debut full length Excess and Design


let us revise all chemical issues
when every desperate voice without a sound
(is reminded, indicted, locked up and choked behind it)
help me find peace by circulating this disease
through the veins of every innocent bystander at the scene

if there is any chance of redemption, I’ve yet to see
no time for an explanation, no time for greater themes
when broken, every promise and lie unspoken
breathes life through me

to carry this weight alone
until the end, who will follow?
(divided, misguided, only the uninvited)
and after all is said and done
the vagrant needles meant to sew will reap
exposing every wound beneath

is this the way it would feel to pray with severed hands?
drained of life; this vice can’t be all I’ve anchored
hope wearing thin
to kill it all is to transcend

i’ve been waiting with arms half-raised
and now the time has come to re-ignite
every parasite, every rivalry, yeah every rivalry
inside everyone daring us to believe


from excess and design, released November 4, 2012
