Track Name: 777
I put my mouth to the cold tile floor
Fingers to the back of my throat
My soft skull pressed flat to the bottom of your indifference
I rubbed my body raw on the floor outside your door

Inside you spoke no words, did nothing
Wouldn't even move
I became afraid of nowhere
Time had stopped, but everything moved

The clock stops ticking
My fingers this time to the back of my eye sockets
My knuckles burn to ash on the side of your face

I've never been more aware of clothing

From the time I never made it to the kitchen
You kept my wrist held tight
and mouthed a silent offer

From the time others napped
and you first found yourself failing to recognize my body
unable to shatter my thoughts

To the time we lay again
far too late, room drenched in static
others sleeping
I was unable to shatter your thoughts

Your skull became soft against my chest
your hands became ash against my tongue
your teeth fell out into my hands
and I would never give them back

I took all you gave me and kept it in a safe with my yearnings

And now the safe lies at the bottom, in the ocean of your indifference
