The Everlasting Gaze

"It has a lot to do with spirituality and trying to find my place in the universe and sort of humbly accepting limitations and the things I've been graced with. It's more of a humanistic world view. I'm not writing anymore for the tortured teen--both me and whoever was listening. I'm writing with the idea that everybody's experiencing these things all the time, and even if they're not experiencing them personally, they're affected by them." -BC

 

Lyrics

you know i'm not dead
you know i'm, you know i'm not dead
you know i'm not dead

now you know where i've been
as you sleep, torn i am
weighted down patiently
born of love

you know i'm, you know i'm not dead
i'm just living in my head
forever waiting on the ways of your desire
you always find a way
and through it all, into us all you move

forgotten touch
forbidden thought
we can never have enough

you know i'm not dead
you know i'm, you know i'm not dead
you know i'm not dead

found below, the creatures scream
stranglehold, a god machine
begin to tear us out
what is hell

you know i'm, you know i'm not dead
i'm just the tears inside your head
forever waiting on the ways of your desire
you always find a way
and through it all, into us all you move

forgotten touch
forbidden thought
we can never have enough
you know i'm not dead

we all want to hold in the everlasting gaze
enchanted in the rapture of his sentimental sway
but underneath the wheels lie the skulls of every cog
the fickle fascination of an everlasting god

you know i'm not dead
i'm just living in my head
forever waiting
forever waiting a cruel death
you know i'm not dead
i'm just living for myself
forever waiting

you know i'm not dead
you know i'm not dead
you know i'm not dead
you know i'm not dead
