Identify me
Attempt to find me
In a sea of sunken dreams
I stay afloat
But only barely on thin arms
I’m a mirror by myself
Reflecting everybody else
But never what I thought or felt
It’s not my time.

It’s the silence that depresses me
And I welcome it subconsciously
I don’t mind.

Even the blind see
Who they want to be
Not contingent on the stares
They are so blissfully unaware
Of what they are
Everyones gaze it petrifies
Because of what it signifies
I feel I’ve lost more of myself
Than I can find

It’s the silence that depresses me
And I welcome it subconsciously
I don’t mind.
And I confront what I repress in me
And I smile at it thankfully
It reminds me of whats real
Reminds me I can feel

And it hurts to know
This is who I am
I’m a mirror myself
Reflecting everybody else
Who am I to deny
my place in their right
I’ll just keep the silence for myself

This is a song from my last band that fell apart way to soon. Hear the song here.

    1. I wish it was my voice! It’s one of my best friends. Unfortunately this band fell apart right after this EP came out and I haven’t written much since. Feel free to check out the rest of the EP if you’d like though! I wish more people got to hear these tracks. But thanks for reading/listening! It means a lot =)

    My favorite line off the EP. What a wonderful way to make light out of dark-a theme I think goes wonderfully with your entire blog. I love the riff at the beginning of the song!
