Bring You Down

Aris Riva This song is starkly beautiful in its unique lyrical resonance and invasively present execution.
Its sparse instrumentals and chilling vocal produce a coldly burning imagery. Kos' other work in You Missed It All is brilliant, and I eagerly await her future work.

lyrics

If it's fragile, how come it never breaks?
I must think you're double-jointed at the waist
Bend over backwards
I know your back hurts
On account of me

Light a match, fan the flame and watch it burn
Why does everybody here look so concerned?
Fear the fury
You are so worried
On account of me

I will keep my mouth shut
So you don't get your back up
You can keep your arms crossed
Watching for the lost
And that I don't bring you down

If it's over, why are we keeping on?
I know I'm the one that made it all go wrong
But you say you're sorry
And wait in purgatory
On behalf of me

I've been thinking, but not as much as you
Can your conviction convince me to be true?
Figure I'm not learning
So you bear the burden
On behalf of me

I will keep my mouth shut
So you don't get your back up
You can keep your arms crossed
Praying for the lost
And that I don't bring you down
