I'm melting out my eyes.
The letter soaks all night.
The gravel hurts my skin. I'm tired of no light.
This isn't who I am. My heart lies in my hand.
There's X's on my mind. My life lies on command.
I'm also bleeding out the colors blue and white.
This helpless soldier needs another right thing to remember.
Not a barrel of a gun.
I could see you're saving; I could see you're craving nothing more than war.
Everyone is waiting here to see if they defeated hell.
This time the butterflies had forgotten how to fly.
I'm scared, yet I can't feel. This almost seems not real.
This is all deceiving. This is all conceiving more.
I need you more than ever. Don't let them send that letter.
I'm starving, shattered in their lie.
