lyrics

THE GATHERING

Shovel, come bury me
Bind my hands & hold my feet
Nobody’s coming, no one will dig me out
Put the fear of blood in every pulse & ounce
(I can’t believe I just said that)
My resolve, keep me free
I’ll try my luck, or let luck try me
They think that they are winning by going in headfirst
A head start for the hearse
Nobody’s coming, keep swinging ropes unwound (Where dangling feet are found)
If they can build you up, then they can tear you down (Like some wrecking ball, man. Set her down!)
A medal for each heart you bereave (Nice try!)
Absolved, rest assured the pardon you seek is nothing when something is brittle
And soon crumbling (held tight!)
Hands on a heart flat lining
Why solve what’s proved in a battle
We’ll have your head on a mantel
The fittest depends on survival
The rich get out quick when they’re liable
A point of significance rests on a group of whims
Give me a hand for a handle
I’ll give it back when I’m stable
Write it on your arm with ink that doesn’t bleed
Hope it doesn’t wash off before it serves its need
Gotta add some sand to stall the hourglass
Confetti as serrated blades and loose skin for a map
Be brave while your wound stings, clean first to scab
Nothing's ever smooth, so it’s worth another stab
Cutting in then held out by arthroscopy clamps
Pros and cons tallied equally.
