Lyrics

I Used To Be A Genius

Written By: Patrick Bosse

I am untangled from words, from metaphors.
for the first time able to outstretch my arms
and feel the breeze touch my skin.
i am bare to the walls of the atmosphere-

so distant from the walls of emotions.
eyes shut to the stares of the sun
and still open to the sight of
just how alive my senses are.

i am an ocean, receiving every last breath of air.
giving back all i am-
after a moment held in time

the sun quiets for sleep.
deciding this is best
for all the wind follows suit
yet i am awake.
i am awaiting the stars
remaining like the ocean i now reflect
the passion in the night sky
i am unravelled from contact. from situation,
from hesitation of being-
anything less of this very moment now

my voice now resides in the orchestra
of the waves against the shore

my sight in perspective are the stars believing in us
these hands are roots within the earth
these thoughts are the creation of life.
from metaphors, from words, i am untangled

Long Nights and Knife Fights

Written By: Patrick Bosse

If this is the last time we ever speak.
the last time we shall meet,
than i'll place my hand in yours
and i'll place my knife in your heart.

can you see the wound in my back?
i know the view is hard
but you can bend my arm if you need to.
do you see how deep its gone?
i hope you remember
because thats how im leaving your heart.

take this scene from my mind
with no regard for your life

and paint your best pictures
on the walls around us.
after i tried so hard,
and fell so many times
to my knees
this was how you left me.

this was how you left me.
this was how you left me.

if this is the last time we ever speak.
the last time we shall meet,
than i'll place my hand in yours
and i'll place my knife in your heart.

tied hands make for great fighters tonight.
and your skin has turned oh so white.
you did this to yourself.
you did this to yourself.

Now They're Dead

Written By: Patrick Bosse

Go ahead and call it the end will you keep your eyes open?
living through the horrors of each person, and every dream
you could hold onto
burning and sinking in front of you.
perhaps it would stimulate more
had you no personal
connection to those
whose life now shatters in front of them.

would you bite then?
indulge fully -
teeth sinking down
would you bite then?
indulge fully -
teeth sinking down
on the sin.

would you be their last chamber-
ending the beginning of pain?
just stand next to me from somewhere distant enough
just to taste their tears. you can smile from here
its safe i swear . its safe i swear
i swear i wouldn't push you at your most masochistic moment.

load your lies to the guns.
aim high you're going for trust-
and save the last round for yourself.

(load your lies to the guns.
aim high you're going for trust-
and save the last round for yourself.)
