warren of ohms – track 05 lyrics


the roots sprout from the floorboards
they tether to my spine
i can hear the walls breathe
a storm of leaves envelop me
each branch; beautiful fruit
each piece, a memory

paintings of days gone by
that i deprived of sunlight
the roots sprout from the floorboards
they tether to our spines
tree trunks coated white keep the citrus alive

i come undone

my spine becomes mangled by your roots
my limbs deconstruct and grow anew
the threads come apart
ripping at the seams
i try so desperately
to bury it beneath
i can’t hide this hideousness
no one knows
no one knows
pick up your feet and run, boy
the flesh doesn’t matter anyway
i am what once was me
i come undone
