about

Originally another screamer, experimenting with singing instead, turned this song into a much more melodically engaging piece.

lyrics

The Letting (R.Rusch)

Once there was blood. Once there was laughter. And you can dream but you can’t go back there. Dream but you can never go back.

Cause that endless sky, no it isn’t for you. You of no worth, avert your eyes. This gray, this cold, is sent to grow you old and make you punch holes in your life.

Spirits hang waiting for yours, broken. Til nothings real, practice forgetting.
With all you are erased, you’ll learn the hollow song.

Then bathed in your tears, I’ll be clean again, yeah I’m gonna play god tonight.
Your polluted blood. Your fake fucking laughter. I’ll end that dream and I won’t go back there.

Spirits hang waiting for yours, broken. Til nothings real, practice forgetting.
With all you are erased, you’ll learn the hollow song.

Come back, we’ll help you die. Take your place among the faceless.
Come back, rehearse your lies. Take your place without a face.
