about

Realizing that friends can build you up and destroy you all at the same time.

lyrics

They're coming for me
I can hear the laughter
They'll rip my heart out while It's still beating
Please hold me for a while, while I'm still breathing
Reapers creeping, they're coming closer
Can you soften all the screaming?
Pull the poison out of me
The footsteps are getting louder
In the shadows voices hide
Sing me into soft asylum
Whisper me a lullaby
Oh never mind, never mind everything's fine

Forget all the words that they've spoken
Don't drive yourself crazy when you realize they have no meaning
Everything you feel is fleeting
This is all temporary
Drive yourself home
Try to keep your eyes open
Don't think about the fact that we all die alone
Just keep moving forward
If they call you again drunk at 2AM don't answer
Make music instead
Play loud enough to drown out the shouting
Strum until your fingers are bleeding
Try to feel something without having someone else touching you
You'll be ok
If not, you're going to die anyways

Swallow some of this
Sit down for a bit
Take it all in
Try not to think too much
If the thoughts don't quite
Just a few more sips
Your bones will tingle
Your lips will twitch
Discover your brains off switch
This is what you've always wanted isn't it?
To escape reality's suffocating grip
Follow me I know where the white rabbit lives
I can show you what freedom is

You said we were soulmates
But the roles we played confused my mind-frame
Now this connection is frayed
I've made the mistake
Of putting myself in a vulnerable state
Your response was a bayonet blade jammed
Through my ribcage from across the table length
To keep the blood off your face
Then you told me to go away
You told me that hearts can break and still beat at the same pace
What are best friends for anyways?

Erin Mulhare - Amazing human being!
I wanted to do a song with poetry and Erin has not only beautiful poems but a beautiful voice! This was the second version of 4 POEMS and I'm so happy we came back to rerecord it!
