  • A hidden depth to burden endlessly
    Golden memories and sainthood
    And the following fall through

    For a certain certainty
    Of what the end of this will be

    There's a weight that rests here
    And underneath innocence
    Rising up, raised to confront
    Imperfections shining through
    Where I wanted to hold you

    It's defective, let us leave it
    In perished walls and ceilings
    Uncompromising
    Torn and crushed

    So cold but pure
    So long
    Granted I'm plagued
    Left untreated and empty

    Demanding breath and being
    Carved always and binding
    These ordered occasions
    A flowing entity
    Is drifting back to me

    Locked in a farewell with what I've caused
    With what I forced

    These similarities, ever-present in their might

    Weathered with dismay
    The irreversible and eternal
    Overthrown
    These sins do not pardon your own

    Woven into veins
    No binding can fray
    It's pressed into these bones

    No bonds here will break
    Links along a chain
    It's pressed into these bones Writer/s: Chris Cayford, Eva Spence, James Spence, Nathan Fairweather, Tom Pitts
