"Dying Aspirations" (from the upcoming album, The Concession Continuum)


Music: Severance
Lyrics: Perez
Dying Aspirations

Bound by necessity

Choices have been made, begrudgingly

Simple ambitions are far from reach

Your bland existence, a travesty---Dying Aspirations

 

All hope that once shone bright

Swallowed by darkness, voraciously

Nothing to strive for

Live day by day, and die night by night, a travesty—Dying Aspirations

 

Sustenance- is now a primal concern

Desire-a luxury that is no longer feasible

Misery-eclipses all hopefulness

Acceptance-dreams have gone from unlikely to non-existent (X2)

 

Limited by circumstances

Confined by consequences

Commitment to survival

 

Bound by necessity

Choices have been made, begrudgingly

Simple ambitions are far from reach

Your bland existence, a travesty---Dying Aspirations

 

 

Poor decisions abound

Pave a path that leads to discontent

A less-than-ideal life

Imperative minimalism (X2)

 

Daily constraints that permeate

Escalation of disappointment

The more you live, the more you die

Asphyxiation through respiration

 

Wretchedness, worthlessness, hopelessness, forlornness

 

DYING ASPIRATIONS x4

 

Daily constraints that permeate

Escalation of disappointment

The more you live, the more you die

Asphyxiation through respiration
