About "Severed Ties" album:
This page contains lyrics from the album
"Severed Ties" by The Amity Affliction, which was released in 2008 and consists of 10 songs.
Why don't you hang these steps upside down,
We'll walk backwards and feel the blood drain to our heads
While your creeping away why don't we pull the punches back?
And perhaps rebuild those severed ties;
When I felt you destroyed everything I knew
I felt ever so slowly becoming you.
Where has my heart gone and where has my faith gone?
And why am I still here, hating every breath you take,
Every step you take, and every move you make?
And just wishing that you'd take your fucking last breath toward expiration;
Do You Party?
Party! All night! Party!
Why the fuck should we change how we behave,
Because you thought it would work better that way?
And who the fuck told you that you should speak up about how it is we act,
About who the fuck we are when we don't cast our eyes your way?
And who the fuck are you anyway?
We're no one and we still feel right at home,
We're no one and we're still just passing time;
To kill the time, to kill the boredom.
Who the fuck can say what we should do?
It's not for lack of percipience that I turned my back;
It's just that I've become so absent from my own train of thought.
I'm only just treading water... I'm only just treading water.
It's not for lack of faith in what was shared that I had to leave,
It's just that I've lost track of all the things you said;
And I'm only just treading water, just holding my head above the surface.
I'm only just treading water, but it's starting to seep in-
A breath to wake me, like the shock of falling as you drift away.
I'm just not able to take it all in I'm only just treading water,
But it's starting to seep in. I'm not saying there's anyone
I Heart Roberts
We dance to this dead beat with eyes locked on the prize,
This is our fatal disease; named you and me.
It's killing us all won't you set it free?
I'll hang you on the wall and call you misery.
So here's to you and here's to us, to everything that ever fell apart;
Nights wasted getting wasted, days we lost to our mistakes...
So we'll never be lost 'till we're all alone
And we'll never be wrong till we're on our own
So wake up and we'll drink for two again.
And we'll never be right till we read our wrongs
I let go of these cold nights long ago
And now it's time for you to follow suit
Take the night sky tears
And those burning eyes stinging from pusuit
Take the regret and sallow timbre
And throw it to the ocean
Where misery can seek it out
You know misery
Loves a lonely stranger
Love Is A Battlefield
(We are young, we are young)
We are young
(Heartache to heartache)
Heartache to heartache, we stand
(Love is a battlefield)
Love is a battlefield
Woah, woah, woah [x3]
Poison Pen Letters
Dying alone would be a privilege
If all my friends were like you.
Dying would be a privilege.
Rusted rail spikes and shards of glass give me rest;
Poison the earth in anticipation.
So tear the pieces from the bone like you've torn us apart.
We've built bridges just for burning.
So light the fires in my eyes so I can watch my own demise.
We've built bridges just for burning.
Light the fires in my eyes watch my own demise;
Snitches Get Stitches
I can say firmly;
None of them knew the colour of the sky...
Imagine if we were lost at sea;
Not a single lip would move, to reveal the stars to me.
I am so lost amongst a sea of desperation
That these milky clouds fail to shine their light
On the path I know I'm meant to take.
Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the sun went down
And our bows filled with lies?
Loose lips sink ships and where were you when the stern broke in two?
Stairway To Hell
For so many years I held my breath for you,
Held under what became the ocean;
Struggling to find footing on what became the ocean floor...
And now, as I reflect on what became my foundation...
Who am I to say the grass was ever greener
Where my own feet struck on the earth?
And that the fields they seemed much neater on my side of the fence;
And who am I to question why you took the path you took?
And who the fuck am I to open this closed book?
The Blair Snitch Project
The walls white, skies white,
Nights white, lights white
And fuck you
For being so fucking white tonight
My eyes roll back white,
White everywhere, lips white,
Words white, lies cold as the
And fuck you for
