lyrics

Subtracted

You pick a message for the last two tongues to speak
You place a letter from the past in front and give it one blessing
Supposing it is lone verse and then shown to be
then over and yet not assured
see it folding away
you tear and release
and there the pieces form verses through the soil
you trample them down and out
it grows into a part of you

And knowing what is gone you search your trodden way
and knowing what is gone you search
Revealing all the closing space and the feeling is quiet
And knowing what is gone you search while it shook you and then took a minute to come out
Never letting go is worse then always looking around seeing if you can find it when it grows into a part of you

Bring misery with silence, can you see inside it now
ignore those echoes, know my sound
Bring misery with silence can you see the struggle
ignore those echoes and know the sound of your own
Will the feeling suffice.

when you kiss my voice, don't wait to reach its taste
I guess my words were mentally replaced
I'm only survived by the letters you sent on your own
you're only surviving a death

a null of the sun is weightless
a null of the sun is weightless
in a minute you're out
and all you deny when you made the center 
in a minute you're lost
