Human Performance

Album: Human Performance (2016)
  • I know exactly where I was when I
    First saw you the way I see you now, through these eyes, waiting to retry

    Those pristine days I recall so fondly
    So few are trials when a life isn't lonely, and now if only

    I'd never felt it, I'd never heard it
    I know I loved you, did I even deserve it, when you returned it?

    There's no suspicion, no hesitation
    Believing through the eyes of sore, adoration

    Witness and know, fracture and hurt
    Eyes in the fire, blink unrehearsed
    Shield like a house, closing its doors
    Curved in the dark, rinses of yours

    Ashtray is crowded, bottle is empty
    No music plays and nothing moves without drifting, into a memory

    Busy apartment, no room for grieving
    Sink full of dishes and no trouble believing, that you are leaving

    Mid-sentence tremors, mind at its weakest
    One way of shaking off the thoughts that it sleeps with

    Witness and know, fracture and hurt
    Eyes in the fire, blink unrehearsed
    Shield like a house, closing its doors
    Curved in the dark, rinses of yours

    In walks the darkness, I pitch without you
    Asks me do I realize what I'd done and who I'd done to, indeed I do know?

    It never leaves me, just visits less often
    It isn't gone and I won't feel its grip soften, without a coffin

    Breathing beside me, feeling its warmness
    Phantom affection gives a human, performance

    Witness and know, fracture and hurt
    Eyes in the fire, blink unrehearsed
    Shield like a house, closing its doors
    Curved in the dark, rinses of yours Writer/s: MAXWELL SAVAGE, AUSTIN BROWN, ANDREW SAVAGE, SEAN YEATON
