One Of Those Times

This is one of those times when a nerve you never thought to exist will pop out in a bad omen, shooting cold shivers like splinters in the implosion of your heart.

You must unlove.
You must regret.
You must feel in debt.
You must owe.
You must
you must
yuomsut
...

Voices will stop failing in their meaning to haunt you at night.
"NO,
stupid boy!"
"Egocentrical boy!"
"Puppet!"
There's no comfort in moon phases, for the dawn belongs to the sleepless and you need to get up early because tomorrow you have a meeting with your boss and your work is delayed delayed delayed delayed delayed, much like those glimpses of happiness that never grow out of glimpses anyway;

and why would they?

You are a preview.
You must undo.
You must regress.
You must act
react
counteract
un-act
reenact

"WAKE UP!"
"What pills are you on?"
"What's bothering you?"
"You can count on us."
"Can you count on us?"
"Can you count?"

Shitcan'ttellmustremainstrongmustpretendmustbefake mustavoid

"nothing."

Put your headphones on.

Shut down.




This is one of those times when you come back home so fucking lost and numb that you feel like you could punch the bathroom mirror and contemplate the open wounds on your knuckles and look into your eyes looking back at you from countless shrapnel

"what the fuck's wrong with you?"

and say "nothing" with a smile that could not be there and it wouldn't make a difference.

This is my favorite part of the entire song... The lyrics twist my gut in a way that makes me want to move. I can't imagine the impact with good music supporting it

Dayum, Seventh Angel, this one hit me right on...every stanza actually. And I lol'd at the
"Shitcan'ttellmustremainstrongmustpretendmustbefake mustavoid"

And I think it's cool how you experiment with certain passages, and as the guy above said. This could become a very musical piece
