Lyrics:

Behind Profanity
Time Violet

The entropy is pulling me
Disordering my mind
Inside the shell blows Pluto’s breeze
I curse to hide my pain inside
Slumped into this fraying seat
Cold neons guide the way
The rumbling thuds to my malaise
Lashing out with hate

I can’t convey how I really feel
A lonely, roiling pain
It chafes, it strains, it suffocates,
A word, relief from my mistakes

I want to know you
Can I cease to flay?
I want to show you
The one behind the profanity
I want to know you
I can find a better way
And when I show you
You’ll hear what I mean to say

I die inside when I realise
The hurt I hurl when I’m cold as ice
Stared upon by a million eyes
That look right through
When will I feel the warm embrace
Shielded from this cursed place
Damn these walls, damn your face
Crumble with me too

I want to hide how I really feel
‘Cause I treat it with disdain
If I seem big, I made you small
Cut you down and I seem tall

I wish I could chain,
My forked tongue away,
My litany to raze
An empty soul under the blaze

I want to know you
Can I cease to flay?
I want to show you
The one behind the profanity
I want to know you
I can find a better way
And when I show you
You’ll hear what I mean to say
[Exit]
