it won't take the pressure off./ Inherit the lie /
So tell me. Do you spit or swallow?

/ A dying light / Fading / Why? /

Seal the absence of my shadow / An open void /
All my dreams condoning arrows / Incomplete /
Killing my defiance and / I drown /
unwind the broken wires in me.

Drained I lay. Branded for life. My shadow fades.
