Respire – Ascent lyrics
Lift this flesh up to serve secret desires
The sky above and earth below, our home with the ashes
Of past laments, things left unsaid
A lonesome breeze, the day I left
Your lips on mine, the bitter taste
Of a yearning heart that’s lost the strength to love
With regrets weighing down, I sink to the bottom of despair

All alone, slowly dying, there’s a lack within
Born of God, forsaken virtue, this divine flesh

Can you feel all that’s left?
This sprawling distance
This sprawling distance
The silence of isolation

All alone, slowly dying, there’s a lack within my heart
Born of God, forsaken virtue, this divine flesh is rotting
Was I thrown into being all broken or did I do this to myself?
In desperation I cry out, please let this life end

If I had to chose, I would want nothing to do with me
If I had to chose, I would want nothing do with this

Lover, can you feel your brittle bones break with the weight of words we once said in silence?
Darling, if all the lonely stars in the sky fell I would still feel your warmth till the end
My God, if you have made me in your image, then what makes you despise yourself so?
To be honest, I feel like every breath I take would be better off as my last

And how many more years of this must I bear?
How many more times will I numb myself?
To feel through just another day
I can’t go on

Will I die to find
The true meaning of your smile?
Will the heavens open up
And show me the light of redemption?

Or will the never-ending dark
Be my only salvation?
Will I see your face again
Before my final breath?
When will I see your face again?
