The pure richness of blood itself

Cuts deep in the veins sharper than loneliness

The shock of urge yearning for someone

To see the true emptiness you hide

No one else understands the true definition of heartbreak

Not until your heart as sunk so low you can’t seem to find it

Not until your throat stiffens and it's hard to swallow

Words are unexplainable

Deeper than life itself

Everyone knows what it's like to fight back the waterfall pushing through

But it all goes back to how deep the bloods runs

Does it runs deep enough to lay over the lies and fears you yet believe are gone

Or is it too deep to were at any point you can burst into tears

Tears hear your pain

So let them out and let them hear the true pain you believed was gone
