The Null Set



Still my heart, cease the beating quickened by
Your passing grace
Better to fix my gaze ahead and forget, forget everything
For now just keep on walking, swallow the words back
Down and pray for nothing
Steel myself and melt back into the shadows
Continue down this lonely path, where love and joy fear to tread
An island of strength free from all feeling
For now just keep on walking
Swallow the words back down and pray for nothing
Easier to just let go, then to fight and lose
An idea too lofty to hold onto
All these nights awake spent staring at these walls
All these feelings I've tried so hard to quell
I hold my breath and try to force it away
Clenching my fists, gritting my teeth

Waiting for the new day to come and dispel these clouds away
A sky of dim prospect, to grim to behold
I'll bow my head and plow forward

Carve my heart out from my ribs
Trap it in a box and throw away the key
If I told you where I hid it
You'd only use it to destroy me
My nerves long dead, turned to dust from lack of use

I've forgot what it's like to bask in hopes warm light

Still my heart, cease the beating quickened by
Your passing grace
Better to fix my gaze ahead and forget, forget everything
