Track Name: Wilt
A Candle that burns at both ends
Either used up or snuffed out
Where is the middle ground
Time is taken, never repaid

Deaths been watching and she's closing in
I can feel the veil drifting from me
Leaving behind questions of mortality

No restful sleep given to me
Thoughts consumed by futile pursuits
All new bloom is wilting
Fate accepted as truth

Catch me waiting for the day
When I assert my place
As nothing more than fuel for trees
The prospect of death offers me certainty

Went weeks without composure
or closing an eye
I am not improving
I am waiting to die

Death is
Watching
Deaths been
Closing in

Death won't wait for me
Every leaf will wilt
Every soul decays

It serves no purpose
To turn from our fate
The search for answers
The path to woe and ache
Death won't wait for me
A blackened hand guides me to my bed

The rest I need is for eternity
The grip of time tightens
And suffocates my being

Sleep
A final gift granted
Just another casket closed
Another life on the fence
Fuel for Trees

Death won't wait for me
