Low Ebb
Feels like I’m running down Slowly
Like an antique watch come unwound
Don’t you try and tell me that tomorrow’s another day
Because it only feels like some kind of sentence
In this hell that I have made

The devil took my hands
But he left me my eyes
So I can still see wrong from right
And if it wasn’t a crime
They why does it tear at my insides
Day and night

Slow time
The kind you can’t pretend can ever lead to anything
Anything useful or worth defending
Leave you high and dry just like that tide
Rolling out, for the last time

Sleep only comes
If I drink myself blind
To chase these demons from my mind
And the devil pulled out my eyes but he left me my hands
So I can take this one final step
Spring the trap that was set

Take this message to my mother though she will not understand
There’s no hell that burns hotter
Than the one I now
Release myself from
