From Autumn To Ashes Chloroform Perfume

The end result of so many meetings

At late night dinners with no one eating

We sit in corners and sip burnt coffee

Count the tiles upon the ceiling

Skip this pretense and cut straight to dying

Don’t pick me to keep your eyes from crying

You said so much without ever parting your lips

It’s past 3 am and I’m still far from sleep

This is a habit that I can’t break

You’re my only company

I’m skipping stones

Street lights flicker like this match in my hand [x3]

Begging to strike [x2]

And I keep repeating, but this payphone tele stopped receiving

Flat out of change now I’m sure you won’t accept the charges

It’s all the same cause by the morning I’ll be halfway to Colorado

Or some place like that

You said so much without ever parting your lips

It’s past 3 am and I’m still far from sleep

This is a habit that I can’t break

You’re my only company

I’m skipping stones down a south suburban street

She keeps on asking “do you think it hurts much to die”

“It’s hurting so much more to stay alive now”

She’s gonna find out how much it hurts to die

She laced her perfume up with death

Feel it in my lungs

So I’ll pull in the deepest breath

And drop my head

From Autumn To Ashes Alive Out Of Habit

In you I see further.

Can it last forever?

Identify your patients, XY configurations

Words are lost in your eyes.

One thought inside my heart.

Drop addicts in the mixture, falcons have blown the fixture

Think of me as days pass us by.

Shards of glass

Skin of gold

Steal my breath

Blood runs cold

Violet waves

Oceans blue

All my love

Lost in you

In you I see further.

Can it last forever?

Sinkhole that we would frequent,

White heels safe from extinction

Words are lost in your eyes.

One thought inside my heart.

I said that I don’t need you, but I’m a liar, I swear I do, I do

Strip away

Vanity

I do

Just as you

Consume me

I do

Broken smile

Starless sky

I do

Save it all

Say goodbye

You’re out in left field, and lacking interest

You fight the boredom but it makes no difference

Your mental health kid, that’s what’s in question

Keep acting obscure, we’ll keep them guessing

The moment ideas are conceived,

They’ll be out of touch, obsolete,

They’re faking champions hand picked,

And all the fights have been fixed,

You wake to suffer through the day,

Trade a dream for the pay,

Well here’s the fact I hope it sticks,

You’re just alive out of habit

Shards of glass

Skies of gold

Steal my breath

Blood runs cold

Violet waves

Oceans blue

All my love

Lost in you

Strip away

Part of me

Just as you consume me

Broken smile

Starless sky

End it all

Say good-bye.

Think of me as I say good-bye.

From Autumn To Ashes A Goat In Sheep’s Rosary

A coarse exhalation of lungs that pray for pity

My two fingers punching the keys diligently

Trembling ground pushed my glass off the table

Spilling the blood of the son of your idol

If it were not for the extensive bug collection

I would know not what Ive found

This world would still be flat

Mary would be a virgin

And I would still be sleeping sound

If every word is a dead symbol empowered by the carriers expression

I’ll bury my instrument citing this incident

I’m a flickering bulb that keeps blaming the filament

The most honest telling of this boyish fable

Is that on level ground

I’m never feeling stable

Ive got to try to outlast this candle

Or trust department to fight the inferno

If it were not for this extensive bug collection

I would know not what I’ve found

This world would still be flat

Mary would be a virgin

And I would still be sleeping sound

Its an endless quest to maintain

When no one is ever right

And out of the fertile plains

We bathe in the fractured rays of

Sun sunlight sun sunlight

And if it were not for this extensive bug collection

I would know not what I’ve found

This world would still be flat

And Mary would still be a virgin

I would still be sleeping sound

They say this country was based

Hard work and integrity

And whats been done

That’s a lie

It was built on murder man

Mayhem

Slavery

Oppression

Lies

Stealing

And tyranny

As a baseline

From Autumn To Ashes Abandon Your Friends

Young women and young men

Forgive us if you can

Abandon your best friends

It’s demanding and filled with detriment

Leaving your lover home waiting

Putting much faith in her patience

Don’t fool yourself it’s not endless

Phone calls are poor consolations

We’ve abandoned our best friends

From Autumn To Ashes A Lie Will Always Defeat The Truth

A Lie will always defeat the truth.

Weight leaves in anger from my shoulders.

Words of wisdom crush hope.

What is real?

I thought I knew.

How could I lie to someone, I cared for?

How could you lie to me, your words pierced me.

The tremble of your soul injects fear into my heart.

I will stand alone.

This gentle mind, the one inside me will never hurt you.

Actions speak louder than words will ever.

So I will show you my sincerity in the shape of my still beating heart.

From Autumn To Ashes Cherry Kiss

Creation imperfect

Do you defy this?

Could you and your swollen ego fit into my master plan for failure?

I take the shame to heart and lock it away in a place thats sees not the light of day

I will use it when I see your face again

(your head in your hands and this is my cue,

If three words could heal you I would only speak two,

Your eyelids grow heavy and this is my cue,

If three words could heal you I’d only speak two)

How could you think after all you put me through

And all you put on my shoulders that I would answer your cries for help?

(How could you think after all you put me through

And all you put on my shoulders that I would answer your cry for help?)

Unleash the rage built up (in my throat)

Show how you hurt me and hopefully you see

You have the power to destroy my will to live

From Autumn To Ashes A Reflection Of Anguish On A Face So Innocent

I felt you slip away, far away from me, further from me.

You seem to drift.

I caught myself wishing you back.

As I fight to catch you.

Anger, wells inside me.

I see me, frowning in your eyes.

I see, the fear in you, where none should ever be.

I am here for you, as I strive to grab you.

I see my reflection and the pain scripted across my face, set in stone.

Anger, wells inside me.

I see me, frowning in your eyes.

Far away from me, further from me.

You seem to drift (Far away).

I caught myself wishing you back.

As I fight to catch you.

Slap me, punch me, stab me, kick me, burn me, crucify me, kill me.

Fuck you, hate you, love you, hate myself.

You are nothing to me.

I am everything to you.

You are nothing to me.

I put the fear in you where none should ever be.

I am everything to you.

From Autumn To Ashes All I Taste Is What’s Her Name

The tears suspend.

Smiles are not more than (empty love)

Locked doors can keep you alone

Forever paint words (from your lips) in a house that’s no longer your home

Take the dreams I know (as my own) and it worsens weekends

Thanks again for my misery. And you run with fake friends

I’m sick of your sad songs and sing alongs.

I kind of like it when things are wrong.

Straight from left end,

They’ll shout corrections,

And I’ll decline, I’ll decline

A source of comfort or some protection

And I’ll decline

Smiles are not more than (empty love)

Locked doors can keep you alone

Forever paint words (from your lips) in a house that’s no longer your home

Take the dreams I know (as my own) and it worsens weekends

Thanks again for my misery. And you run with fake friends

I’m sick of your sad songs and sing alongs.

I kind of like it when things are wrong.

Straight from left end,

They’ll shout corrections,

And I’ll decline, I’ll decline

A source of comfort or some protection

And I’ll decline

In your throat

You will see

Surface relocated

Therapy.

All I taste of today

Is the shame (of) my whore prety

All I know are apologies

Do you feel the shame?

From Autumn To Ashes Autumns Monologue

Oh why can’t I be what you need?

A new improved version of me.

But I’m nothing so good

no, I’m nothing…

just bones, a lonely ghost burning down songs

of violence, of love, and of sorrow.

I beg for just one more tomorrow!

Where you’d hold me down, fold me in

deep deep deep in the heart of your sins.

I’d break in two over you

I’d break in two

and each piece of me dies

and only you can give the breath of life!

But you don’t see me. You don’t.

Here I’m pinned between darkness and light,

bleached and blinded by these nights.

Where I’m tossing and tortured till dawn

by you, visions of you, then you’re gone.

The shock bleeds the red from my face,

when i hear someone’s taken my place.

How could love be so thoughtless, so cruel?

When all, all that i did was for you…

I’d break in two over you

I’d break in two

and each piece of me dies

and only you can give the breath of life!

But you don’t see me. You don’t.

I’d break in two over you

I’d break in two

and each piece of me dies

and only you can give the breath of life!

But you don’t see me. You don’t.

I’d break in two over you,

I’d break in two over you! Over you

I’d break in two,

I would break in two for you.

Now you see me, now you don’t.

Now you need me, now you don’t.
