afi lyrics

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep.
I can’t take this deeper panic.
Teach me, teach me not to dream
Dream deeply

Slowly, I’ll swallow your fears
For all of those years
How could you let them consume me?
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

Slowly, it’s consuming me
Deliberate and deep
I can’t take this deeper panic
Teach me, teach me how you sleep
So sweetly

Blaqk Audio // First to Love

Emily, what did you say when he said,
“follow me”?
What would you give to live your tragedy?
She said, “No one’s ever sent me flowers,”
as the tears filled her eyes.
Like the world, she denied me.
“You’ll be the first I leave,
because I’m always the first to love.”

Why am I this way?
Why am I this way?
Tell me why?
Why am I this way?
Why?

Open wounds in the palms of my hands
Festering through infectious time
I feel so faint as my life spills over you

Back step over glass as I repent
I fear I cannot prevent
Myself from spilling your life all over me

I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(Mother, say you’ll pray for me)
I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(I’m premature in my decay)

I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(Mother, say you’ll pray for me)
I’m so sick, so sick of myself

Shards of glass swimming in my eyes
A small voice in the back of my mind
That’s whispering words I never want to hear

I pray that you won’t hesitate
As you watch me degenerate
To reach in my wounds and extract all of my fear

I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(Mother, say you’ll pray for me)
I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(I’m premature in my decay)

I’m so sick, so sick of myself
(Mother, say you’ll pray for me)
I’m so sick, so sick of myself

My suffocation, asphyxiation
I’ve been choking on my own blood
My suffocation, asphyxiation
I’ve been choking on my own blood

I’m so sick, so sick of myself
Mother, say you’ll pray for me
