Why don't you hang these steps upside down
We'll walk backwards and feel the blood drain to our heads
While you're creeping away, why don't we pull the punches back?
And perhaps rebuild those severed ties

When I felt you destroyed everything I knew
I felt ever so slowly becoming you
Where has my heart gone and where has my faith gone?
And why am I still here, hating every breath you take
Every step you take, and every move you make?

And just wishing that you'd take
Your fucking last breath toward expiration
I can't even make myself out in the fog
You are the swamp, you are the sand beneath my feet pulling me down

I have no face for your name
Your roots never went any further down
I felt them writhe in the cellars of my mind
Rotted through right where they fell, yet here I am

The wasted pulp of what you are
But at least if I fall
I can say we failed together
Sure to be the only thing we ever shared

'Cause you were never there
And I'm yet to feel like I'm even here
If I sink into the swamp that is misery
At least I know you'll drown with me as well
