From the 2011 EP a month project.

lyrics

This is not a song about a lover
This is a song about a loved one
Sent me spiraling down the path of inner hatred
Sicker than that of betrayal
This is not about one person
This is about many
Lead me to believe they were right for me
Then stabbed me in the heart strings
Where my pulse exists is unknown
Cuz when I was younger my heart did not have a home
Merely a suitcase
Which weekend they wanted me
Was it me who caused this,
Without regard to their affirmations
Still my spirit feels tainted,,
In a room full of loved ones
I still feel out of place
Vacant
Now during the teen years
It played out much the same
Cats kept close to me for what I had to offer
Not who I was
Then attempted, failingly, to devour my sanity
I dream of youth where no one told me how life is
Was it really protection or setting me up to fail
Now now I’ve learned and mastered on how to navigate
And shed each veil that keeps me from you
And you
Still there is boundaries,
Now in my twenties,
I’ve felt family fall to darkness,
Ancestors who shall remain a memory
Such a divine dance
Lady death, Dios, keeping things in balance
Such that now there is still something in me,
Beating
Beating
Beating
-----
I want peace of mind ( I pulled off the wings of a butterfly )
