T H E S I N K I N G A N T H E M
(many waters)

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



Your mission's compromised the moment that you lay the plans

I count the tired yarns you spin yourself on just one hand

And with all the time you're wasting I could write a thousand songs for you

If music spoiled your mission that would be one more excuse



Your "will"'s will turn to "might"'s

In spite of time's relentless melt

Your "maybe"'s justified

By all the lies you tell yourself



But rest assured my friend,
In time you will
in time you will
in time you will
in time you will
in time you will
in time you will
in time you will



The cadence of these words will dawn upon a greater man than you

And he will change his mind to find the way of getting out of this is through

And with nothing learned and unconcerned you'll shrug responsibility

But you are well aware that this is not what you were born to be



Your "will"'s will turn to "might"'s

In spite of time's relentless melt

Your "maybe"'s justified

By all the lies you tell yourself

But rest assured, in time you will



I've been treading water, barely staying up

Tending to the broken hearts, and emptying the cups

I've been standing in the quicksand looking up

"In time you will" has been the sinking anthem long enough



Kill the fallen angels

Kill the ones I long to be



I've let Mr. Hyde decide for long enough

Broken glass and bloody knees and suicidal lust

All the faces photos seem to show beneath the dust

Wasted youth, unspoken truth, and traces of disgust


"Sorry, son, but could you hold this till your time is up?"

"Well, I've been been carrying the weight for long enough."

In time you would, in time you would, in time you would give up

In time you will
In time you will
In time you will
In time



Kill the fallen angels

Kill the ones I long to be

Call: 

Give me what I'm owed and all the weight will seem to fall away

Response: Getting what you wanted doesn't mean the weight will fall away

Call: 

Give me everything and all the weight will seem to fall away
Response: 
Give up everything and all the weight will surely fall away

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?
