Sweetest Poison (Texas in July)

Cut me wide open, drain me of all there is to give Store me away to the barrel to writhe with the sewage Living with lies, falsehood, and deceptions I am all of this, but I've realized That my bones were created from this Forced down my throat, my ears, my eyes It's too much, it's far too much, Fooled into thinking I was the only one In my darkest time, I lust for clarity Split between sights unseen and thoughts in between I'm letting go, I'm starting over Breathe it in like the sweetest poison Like the sweetest poison I'm letting go, I'm starting over To clear my name and walk my own path I'm on my own, and now I'm closer To finding a way to bring me back These colors that I see shining the brightest Were all stained by the hands of the shameless In one final purge, dispose of your affliction To mend what's left and achieve what you envision Regrowth, regeneration Developed in negative tension In the midst of all my hopes held in suspension As my former husk crumbles to dust I ready my mind and I reassemble I trust that bliss won't arrive without resistance But I know we are all capable of greatness In my darkest time, I lust for clarity Split between sights unseen and thoughts in between I'm letting go, I'm starting over Breathe it in like the sweetest poison Regrowth, regeneration Developed in negative tension In the midst of all my hopes held in suspension I'm letting go, I'm starting over To clear my name and walk my own path I'm on my own, and now I'm closer To finding a way to bring me back
