and today, it was you

from by perish song



Time spent in the home where I was raised
Discarding my old things, hiding old picture frames
Hopeless, tossing out failed attempts under the mountains of my favorite unworn clothes
Searching for the place I hid myself pretending that I was looking for something else

Give me a chance just to excuse the mess I’ve been
While I stare at sketches of how things should look by now
I’m just an excuse in place of accomplishment
As far as I'm aware, everyone isn't ugly where it counts

A clutter of fear that will cover myself as I sleep
Walk to a painted line: a fence no one else can see
A thin wall of comfort that separates them from me
Water instead of hope; sunlight instead of dreams
Planting a garden to nurture fake misery


from where nothing is born and nothing dies, released May 5, 2016
