Lyrics

Syllables Of A Broken Tongue

Written By: The August Name

You have a knack for staring through and far past
I'm invisible to you like my body is made of glass
We've become thin and empty
What a mess you've made of everything
When you let me down take care because I may just shatter
Would it even matter?

Please tell me what it's like to have yourself so figured out
Above the rest of the crowd
You're stretching the truth now
Have you ever thought of consequences that you're in for
Never paying mind to what could be in store
You spread true colors on a white board

This city's packed to the brim with those that can't hold their tongues
The streets are littered with the remnants of chaos that's been done
You can't run because I'll find the pieces of your secrets that lie within everyone

Even when you're asleep I know your mind is wide awake
Plotting against me
I haven't slept in days
You can't keep a story straight
I can watch the guilt run down your face
Into red soaked palms that once shared kind embrace

I can't unveil your tendencies
They spread like fire through the air we breathe
My body's numb while in your presence
It is draining me
One day you will get lost
By burning every bridge that you cross
Leaving you nothing

This city's packed to the brim with those that can't hold their tongues
The streets are littered with the remnants of chaos that's been done
You can't run because I'll find the pieces of your secrets that lie within everyone

Awaking, I'm hating how barren we've become
I'm numb inside
I could stare deep into your eyes
The broken hands of fate
Have taken away what has made
The ember turn to fire
I hear the whisper of a ghost fading into black skies that have dawned before our eyes
All we had is lost
