the vines that bind us lyrics – rosary ligature

give me the cancer
i’d rather taste death
the efficacy of attrition
such a success, regardless of intent
these words are all that’s left
of things i can’t forget
in function they fail
momentarily fulfilled
a tumor on the hole
they were trying to close
a fuel to feed the hunger
a rusted tool seeds the harvest
weight hindering limbs
if the key could be found
leaving burden behind
ball and chain sustained
acid eat skin,
soul vulnerable
