Your life is all I’ve ever wanted.
Do you mind if I pretend I’m you?
Do you mind if I look on your life from my world of shit?
It’s so hard for my heart to beat when this blood is clean,
But I am looking at you,
And looking at you makes me feel a little less broken.
We both lost the same things and cheated at the same game.
I am not the model son; I just kept my blood clean.`
I spent the early days with hopes to be like you,
But today you told me your kid brother is the man you want to be.
And, even though your black clad skin is full of holes
And your eyes are sunk in beyond repair,
The day you stop trying, I’ll have to give up too.
Because the wheel spins around in the game of true brotherly love.
Track Name: Pallbearer
Pale, white, and motionless, you are the snow
That sits on the ground in thick pillows
To break my fall
Like you always did
With the strongest arms, you pull me in
The procession line made real
Everything I tried to deny
With closed eyes, you see through me
With cold skin, you burn me
Your body felt weightless
Compared to the heavy hearts
That held you up
If your ghost could scream with us
She would say
Hold those heavy hearts high
But I could feel your skin
Through the thick grey walls
November cold and stiff
I dried a pale, white rose for you
So when I buried you
You wouldn’t bury me, too
