lyrics

It’s been so many years since you have gone into your grave.
I still have your memories, but now those have begun to fade.
It’s getting harder to wake up every day,
and Johnny Walker only can numb so much pain.

Why did I have to be the one who found you lying there?
Fell to my knees when I saw your body, stiff and cold and bare.

Dying slowly.
Ripping and tearing, I’m falling apart at the seams.
So lonely.
I’m the last sprig in a forest of sawed-apart trees.
Woe owns me.

Time goes by
and tears run dry
and I’ll never know why
you were taken from me.

I want to know
what kind of god would steal the ones we love away from us.
If in fact he does exist, I’m sure he’s one sadistic fuck.

Now you seem
just like a dream.
I wish I could wake up
and find you waiting for me.

I swore I’d never forget
your scent, your voice, your face.
Please say my aging recollection
doesn’t denigrate my love.

about

Square and Compass Houston, Texas

"This is a newer band made up of OG punk/hardcore kids from Texas. They put on a super energetic and interactive live show, thanks to their insane singer. Really fun to watch, and a great homage to the punk/DIY scene from ten years ago. They’re just getting started and already doing a bunch of rad stuff." - Sarah Saturday (Warped Tour Booking Agent) ... more
