lyrics

It's what I gotta be like
I feel like
You see why
I can't explain

When the feeling moves me
Removes my
Instinct
This is a game

It's what I gotta be like
A free hike
Sea lights
A mountain range

A billion aeons
Neon
Lean on
A slow landscape

Map my creases
I cease to be
Is this my final form?
In the arms of sleep

It's what I gotta be like
Gripping
Slipping
Truth ripped me apart

Squared me uniform
Cuneiform
Darkness
A dying art

Each choice I make
It breaks me
Cuts me
Farther down

To bone, muscle,
Heart
Hussle hard through
Dirt and sound

Map my creases
I cease to be
Is this my final form?
In the arms of sleep

The morning is a sliver
A shiver
I'm mourning
The disease

It left us so mortal
Hurting
More so
Fragile ease

I could have cut it
Froze it
In the moment
Instinct took charge

It ripped me apart
Less
My heart
My lifeless heart

Map my creases
I cease to be
Is this my final form?
In the arms of sleep

In the end
When you disappeared
As I feared
With no surprise

You were already
Too far
To stare
Into your eyes

My instincts abandoned
Random
Acts
A mystery gift

Cold clinical
Trials
Reviled
That's all we have left

Map my creases
I cease to be
Is this my final form?
In the arms of sleep
