a portrait of the artist lyrics – aiden

a portrait of the artist

i watched as the black sky parted back
through fields of tar and thread
a tourniquet of lace and dialect
our ceremony
i fall as the comfort rushes in
no terrifying dreams
i’ll shed my skin for you

have i broken my addiction dead inside
have i broken my addiction dead inside
a picture of my genocide

paralyze the light fell from your eyes
my hope is faded grey
our wickedness we share
this ceremony
i watched as the antique sky turned black
through fields of heroin
i’ll shed my skin for you

have i broken my addiction dead inside
have i broken my addiction dead inside
a portrait of my genocide

a portrait of the artist, a portrait of a young man
to sing this song in silence is grand

my addiction
dead inside
broken
genocide
