after the end lyrics – spineshank

after the end

the picture is fine
perfection is….
it mimics what used to be
rise again to fall behind
expose the worm inside

the color has faded
this changes everything
you’re plastic and empty
it’s all you’ll ever be

this scar will never bleed,
or kill the pain before it spreads,
i’m left with nothing
blood washes hands
and yours have never been clean
the filth is what makes you who you are

run to your savior
the weakness surfacing
replace all your anger
and pray for sympathy now

you try to hide the damage
below the surface
it just keeps bleeding
you try to blur the image
envision who you are

after the end
closing your eyes
and lifting your head
losing your self control

now, the sight of your disaster
embedded in me
just like an execution
it’s all for nothing
it’s slipping away
the decay
just your form of evolution

it’s cold and it’s vacant
it’s always out of place
distorted and changing
it’s just an empty face

2. nothing left for me

you found a way to get inside
and see the broken
reliving such a damaged life
it’s taking over
now you see through fading eyes
it’s like i’m disappearing now
you made me who i am
you’re everything i hate in me

and now there’s nothing left for me

you found a comfort in the wounds
it’s like you taste the blood again
the way you go in for the kill
and now there’s nothing left for me
you don’t exist outside of me
all your selfish purity
is just a fragile memory
and now there’s nothing left for me

find a way to kill the past
and stop the bleeding
reduce you to a photograph
that won’t stop fading
i look at you and see nothing
you’ve taken everything from me
i hope you saved yourself
i’ll never be the same again

you found a comfort in the wounds
it’s like you taste the blood again
the way you go in for the kill
and now there’s nothing left for me
you don’t exist outside of me
all your selfish purity
is just a fragile memory
and now there’s nothing left for me

i see a ghost of who you are
now your memory is a scar
the constant need to kill
the senses that keep you tied to me
just to keep your focus right
you dilute to black and white
it doesn’t stop
the fading view of who you are

and now there’s nothing left for me

you found a comfort in the wounds
it’s like you taste the blood again
the way you go in for the kill
and now there’s nothing left for me
you don’t exist outside of me
all your selfish purity
is just a fragile memory
and now there’s nothing left for me
