(cor cordium)

=========================


Won't you save me

Hold me gently

I have suffered

Lift me upward

Stuck in the riptide

Smile by the wayside

Help me I'm drowning

Wave barely frowning

Can you hear me calling

Hold me up I'm falling



Feign me a rescue

Thought I should test you

Went as expected

You unaffected



Can you hear me calling

Hold me up I'm falling

And my lungs are filling

Was the past worth killing



Don't act like you ever

Don't act like you ever

Don't act like you ever

Don't act like you ever


You never showed up to save me so

I guess I'll just have to let you go

I thought that I knew what friends were for

You don't got to save me anymore

(I'll forget you)



You went and you left me all alone

One day you will reap what you have sown

I'll sing it until it's set in stone

I still got my goddamn microphone

(I'll forget you)

You never showed up to save me so

I guess I'll just have to let you go

I thought that I knew what friends were for

You don't got to save me anymore

(I'll forget you)



You went and you left me all alone

One day you will reap what you have sown

I'll sing it until it's set in stone

I still got my goddamn microphone

(I'll forget you)

(Can you hear me calling)
You never showed up to save me so

I guess I'll just have to let you go
(Hold me up I'm falling)

I thought that I knew what friends were for

You don't got to save me anymore

(I'll forget you)


(And my lungs are filling)

You went and you left me all alone

One day you will reap what you have sown
(Was the past worth killing)

I'll sing it until it's set in stone

I still got my goddamn microphone

(I'll forget you)

Apropos, the saint should show

As soon as I stand on my own

Apropos, the saint should show

As soon as I stand on my own

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
