Track Name: Hiraeth
Dragging myself out of bed to hate this day I live

The sun is setting
The air is cold
The clouds are falling
I am alone

Coiled in suspense.
I sit at the edge of the earth alone.
My mind is blank, but you.
Desperate for a reason to breathe.
Tempted to find one in me.

I sit at the edge of the earth alone.
My mind is blank, but you.

But you
I am alone

Torturing thoughts
Forged by the groans for my flaws
Nurtured to rot
Sores in my throat from the coughs

Torturing thoughts
Exploring the void of my heart
Nurtured to rot
Ignoring the voices and the scars

I am alone
