Exposition [Single version]


VG x


Hold me down weight me down again tear me open.
Bend my back again.
Let me feed this instinct in me.
My thoughts are in two modes:
A figure of faith or an eternal fiend nest in the hell inside my dreams.
"Defy Him or deliver me".

Everyday we constantly battle.
The church feels more like a prison and my brother feels more like a stranger.
Praying gives me nothing.
My body is sick, my body is sick.
I leave this place to find my fix,
the heavy rain hitting my face.
This urge is growing.

Shelter and a place to hide is all that I can see.
I slip through the heavy wooden door,
I find my self at a bar with no company.
"Bring me what I need".
A drink to calm this zealous leech.
The clock hand strikes twelve.
I'm torn open.

The barman points to the wooden door,
The glass I hold, slips to the floor.
Drunken words, a fight breaks out.
April 4th: His blood stains the ground.
I awake.
His glazed eyes stare back at me.
Oh my god, forgive me for what I have done.
