Lyrics – Sweet Release

{ words & music by Simon Spire }

*

I watched it crush all that I was

I watched it chip away until it seemed

I saw a speck of who I used to be

And only a thread remained

With no possible escape

*

Sweet release – it burns

Tearing away till it doesn’t hurt

I see emperors’ clothes, it all implodes

And I watch that bubble burst in a perfect ending

One last breath and then

I let it burn, sweet release

*

I watched it all drain empty

I watched the sky fall down

And what was empty filled with silence

A picture of clarity

Signed: your friend, Catastrophe

*

Sweet release – it burns

Tearing away till it doesn’t hurt

I see emperors’ clothes, it all implodes

And I watch that bubble burst in a perfect ending

One last breath and then

I let it burn, sweet release

*

I buried my despair in hope but then I

Finally melted them both when I

Came to see reality and

Everything is purity – it’s all that it can be

*

Chorus
