Lyrics

Stitches

Written By: AMORAK Lyrics by: JEFF WRIGHT

Drink up with me, here’s to hoping we’re right. We tear the limbs from a memory that’s fallen behind. And gather them up, reattach and reconstruct 'til the pieces fit. Do they fit? Are the stitches holding it, together tonight? This table is cold, and it can hardly hold the weight of all. We’re renewed. Young skin to old bone, helps to keep the past from spilling out of it. Let’s give this thing a heart, push the blood and the fingers start to twitch. Eyes alight. I think it’s coming to life. And now that it’s opened up this feeling inside. Ordinary minds are gonna make new life tonight. Sick of dotting faded i’s, tired of wandering those insufferable streets, these new battles defeat old wars. It has it’s heart, it’s got the strength. It’s moving towards us now and I can’t wait for it.

An Unfortunate freedom

Written By: AMORAK Lyrics by: JEFF WRIGHT

Stuck in the dark without a memory
Don’t understand just got away from me
My face a vacant look of disbelief
Emotion with no sensitivity
Alone in my own anonymity
A splitting sound and all that’s found of me is broken down
Relieved of all purpose, a wanderer now
Why did I take all that it had to give so easily?
Empty waiting on the other side
An awakening, the faintest thing now hungered for
I have no more
Lifeless, unfortunate, and weighed to fall
I can’t imagine it, I can’t imagine at all
I’m slipping in, and out, and in, and out again
Full of these listless beginnings without any end
Why did I take all that it had to give so easily?
Empty waiting on the other side
An awakening, the faintest thing now hungered for
I am no more
Than a child
Waiting
But I don’t know what for
Just sat down
Kept quiet
Chasing a lesson fading
Then it’s gone
As my mind’s taken from me
I’m left a false sense of invulnerability
Like stepping off without ever looking down
Empty space below my feet
No prints to show where I came from or where I’ve been
Caught, alone, falling
An entity abandoned
with no reprieve at all
This heavy nothing sinks, to a bottom unreachable
And I am alone
Stuck in the dark without a memory And then it disappeared entirely

Tempo of Walking

Written By: AMORAK Lyrics by: JEFF WRIGHT

Sometimes I feel
Like I’m on the run
And sometimes it feels like the end
but I know that it’s just begun
I know it will last much longer
than a single fleeting moment
With patient anticipation I’ll approach it
Through the tempo of walking,
I’ll get to where I know I should be
And times on my side
so don’t worry ‘bout me
Sometimes I hear
What’s not always there
And sometimes it sounds
like an old set of lungs
just gasping for air
An idea unfolded, read aloud,
ignored and underrated
Stripped to bone, all alone,
I’m left exasperated
Nothing left but the rest,
I pull a breath from my chest,
and sing it loud
When pen hits the paper, I’m filling it out
Sometimes I feel
Like I’m on the run
Sometimes it feels like the end
but I know that it’s just begun
