First single off of our debut EP, "Binary"

lyrics

I've been trying to live with this empty worn skin
I feel a longing inside me
I don't wanna be empty

I feel their fingers below me
Gripping at my ankles
I've been submerged in darkness
no compass to the surface

BRING ME BACK
I WANNA BREATHE AGAIN
BRING ME BACK
I WANNA LIVE AGAIN

Two daggers crawl around my head
One turned toward my heart
The other guides my hand
I'm guided from the outside
Against myself my hands are tied

I'll close my eyes, leave it behind
Try to make a desert out of my mind.
I need clarity or it'll be the death of me
I hold this life within my finger tips
The time is ticking as the fingers are slipping
I'll hold my hand back from what it's thinking
I'm not strong enough to win
I've been waiting so long for this life to begin
But before you even know it, before you can even see it
ITS ALL OVER

my life is gone right before my youth
Ripped out of my head like a dying tooth
These bones removed right from their roots

I'm no good they probably said to you
You hear their words as undying truth
They never shook my hand but they'll lie to you

This body, this brain, this family, my worth
I tried to turn my back but it hurts
I want to be the end of pain
I need to drown the earth in flames

I wanna push you to the very edge,
Your life will never be the same again
STEP OVER THE LEDGE
All of your dreams laid out before you
Let them go before the devil takes you
Reach out your hand before paranoia destroys you and leaves you empty

I don't wanna be alone in the darkness
Why does it feel like I'm constantly a target?
Ill subject myself to judgement
But not from someone who doesn't know me
I'm sick of being told who I am
I live this life
I am my own man

...But this darkness guides my hand
I'm not strong enough to win.
