Torment

lyrics

I breathe through my nostrils now
Won't open my mouth
If I do I'm afraid somehow
Dark things will crawl out

I don't truly pen these lines
I am far too cautious
It's something deep inside my mind
Hidden in my subconscious

Words and phrases fill my head
It's hard to feel at peace
Writing them down before bed
Is how I find release

Then I grab an instrument
And craft life from a song
Is this to my detriment
Knowing the words are always wrong

How can I stay close to you
If you won't allow it
I've got no other key to use
The one I have just won't fit

I never said a thing to you
If I didn't mean it
But all the words I chose to use
Seems to me they don't fit

The very first time I held your hand
You made the words go silent
Storm puddles turned into white sand
Everything became so vibrant

But if this life has taught me well
I learned pleasure is brief
The world has limited joy to sell
Sometimes you must play thief

Always climbing to greater heights
How else can we get by
Losing track of the many nights
Spent trying not to cry

I paid the sentence for my crime
Just waiting for you
But even after all that time
You let me fall right through

How can I stay close to you
If you won't allow it
I've got no other key to use
The one I have just won't fit

I never said a thing to you
If I didn't mean it
All the words I chose to use
Seems to me they don't fit

I feel the fire deep inside me
A desire to create
While I burn internally
I will challenge fate

All the work is worth it though
Knowing that I will make
Life easier for friend and foe
This is yours to take

I've been told that I should change
Or just to stay the same
But if either I would arrange
Would you remember my name

Someday I will walk away
From everything I know
With no words left to say
I will simply go

How can I stay close to you
If you won't allow it
I've got no other key to use
The one I have just won't fit

I never said a thing to you
If I didn't mean it
All the words I chose to use
Seems to me they don't fit

How can I stay close to you
If you won't allow it
I've got no other key to use
The one I have just won't fit

I never said a thing to you
If I didn't mean it
All the words I chose to use
Seems to me they don't fit

How can I stay close to you
If you won't allow it
I've got no other key to use
The one I have just won't fit

I never said a thing to you
If I didn't mean it
All the words I chose to use
Seems to me they don't fit
