This circular opening that relies on the blood and vein...

Whilst he flies out swift and free, all these bodies are left here to remain.

Lost control - this heart is pounding… can't remember where we had set about.

Body burns without moving…
…why can't my mind fly off?

When will I embrace this hazy hollow?

He rules the night - I'll catch a glimpse of fleeting umber…
…can't consume me, nor all the sleep you've borrowed.

Cheap bastards - misleading - intentions: greedy.
Taste it…
…embrace it…
…lose all other feelings.

I can't seem to find you.

I can't find my clear view.

Taste it…
…embrace it…
…lose all other feelings that you borrowed.
