lyrics

This logical loss brought on by alcohol bought
makes you both act like a horrible person
that I know you both are not
but its not something that you're willing to stop
and your own self destruction is coming at the cost of your son
but I know I should stop trying to fix
all these holes in a raft I perceive as the titanic
but I know you too well just to call it quits
and let you live a way I know you loathe to exist

And I still cry when I close my eyes
and I can hear you screaming still
but the house is silent
I had conjured some violence while no one was home
projected in my brain like it was the real thing
I hear your voices sometimes and I feel like I'm going insane
I fear that I've developed some mental illness with this irrational way
I create violence out of stillness

And petrichor
all the I smell is what's left of the storm
and I've watched my face change forms
too many times to recognize it anymore
but I'm becoming too attached to a life
and I know this too shall pass
but I cant continue keeping myself
from the time I won't get back

It's appearance is deceiving
open rooms and high ceilings
pouring light on the dark corners of awful feelings
but its not the walls that are peeling
but the family and feeling that the
foundation could collapse on any given weekend
that I come home to visit
I prefer you at a distance
where I can still retreat back to my quiet existence
and I can't even drink without seeing your visage
when my vision is blurred I mirror your image

And petrichor
all the I smell is what's left of the storm
and I've watched my face change forms
too many times to recognize it anymore
but I'm becoming too attached to a life
and I know this too shall pass
but I cant continue keeping myself
from the time I won't get back
