Dead Eyes

from by Graves At Sea



from The Curse That Is, released April 1, 2016
I'm not looking at you / But through you with dead eyes

Vision encompassing nothing / A desire to obscure

Awareness carved out / Path of the least resistance

Reaching for bottom on my way up

This poison is love

Dead eyes / Void heart

Bleeding out the sympathy

Closed eyes / Black heart

Embracing the empathy

I stand transfixed to depart / This reality

Inject / Escape in my body

The sickness is sweet

A momentary lapse of instant relief

The hand of death is well fed

By the willing and faithful

No clear / Water / All I see is blood

Tranquil / Nauseous / The shore's so far away

Waves / Crash / Soon I'll be entombed

Embrace / Collapse / The numbness prevails

The heart / Slows down

The mind / Goes down

The soul / Breaks down

This love is poison

I stand transfixed to return

Reject the escape in my body

Vision locked on your eyes

See inside for the first time

Morose reflection of dead eyes
