To And From The Record

lyrics

i left the program, when i was born
to fight my way through it's demented thorns
as time got bought, it was locked in the wall under glass
the tongue slipped, but there's blood on every little word, oh yeah

i ain't a fancy singer, no, no
a self-circling thinker just go, goes
so grab your heart and tear in two with your life
there's mannequins, that begin where your pain and your love dies

 i don't want to break all, the comforts we designed
 i need to fold myself into a hundred different lines
 maybe we could take the parts, that i destroy inside
 and build a solid mental shelter from the memories that kill

it don't make you bad to scream in the phone
it don't make me bad to want to be alone
as i get cut from above with a knife in the sky
once upon a dark time, i had a bullet-proof vest on the inside
