Time Unused 03:26
don't you feel alone it sure looks like you're a lonely friend I sure feel it sometimes but most times I just pretend I'm loved take your dry bones out sometime and soak them wet feel the room get dim and swallow your sad soul down with your regret and I'm drifting through this little life with little patience a looming of our exiled smiles an overbearing sense of muse and time unused don't you feel the waste it sure feels like the years were never here I sure remember some times but most times I'm just not aware they ever were take your wet eyes out sometime and drink them dry feel the world get lit and and burn your sad life before you calcify and I'm drifting through this little life with little patience a looming of our exiled smiles an overbearing sense of muse and time unused

I have never been so far away from this blue-green jailhouse there's not air connecting life or to keep my fire on I'm eclipsing where I'm from everyone's in dark night a shadow in the shape of man over endless childhood's land why am I still alive it's more than I deserve or want or need and as the mists begin to form and roll in from twilight I turn to face the boiling sun and offer her my eyesight why am I still alive it's more than I deserve or want or need from pillar to post I drift and wail as the earth crescents and years melt memories of me like the oceans seep away the incessant turning of the orbs and the flares, they guide me black matter drowns me in this void as the silence lingers on and on... why am I still alive it's more than I deserve or want or need

keep checking off the boxes till you run out of space don't forget your time now don't forget your place I've been writing for a week now with the room all penciled in I'm sleeping on the crevice where the paper ain't too thin and my time is blue and running through the cracks formed in my mind and living in my back my crime is you living in all black inside my time and turning it way back and I'm fucked up on the weekend just to fuck up something more this constant droning in me this constant bloody war I've been writhing till I'm weak now where the gloom ain't stenciled thin and I'm creeping like an heiress where the piper's piping grim and my time is blue and running through the cracks formed in my mind and living in my back my crime is you living in all black inside my time and turning it way back

well I took it to the taker and he thanked me that I had returned he took me in for an all nighter so I had all the night with him thanks, mister man, for all the hard drugs thanks for the number of the beast I'll call to talk about believers and bleeders hanging just like pictures you ended yourself and then you gods destroy the world you play the world and then you old men destroyed it all yeah you old men destroyed it all hey mogul will you be my saviour will you write off all my sins I know I'll see you when we die now we will glimpse you on the move man I really turned the corner right when the blue red cornered me I ducked and rolled and then recovered bleeding naked on the fissure I took a cab to where the people weren't grey and ill at ease he dropped me off down at the graveyard and he pointed to my ditch you ended yourself and then you gods destroy the world you play the world and then you old men destroyed it all yeah you old men destroyed it all

as the seas rise we go down into darkness wet and cold and all the borders that we thought we had they're just lines drawn in the sand and all the ashes that we eat they just leave us hollow I just had this dream where I thought I had a future without sorrow and how foolish can we be to think that anything matters well it don't matter much to me I blacked out somewhere in a town came out on the other side I saw all that I could ever see and never had another night of dreams and then woke up next to icy sheets I heard the door creak and click shut and all the plans I thought we had we never had so I just breathe in the sea and how foolish can we be to think that anything matters well it don't matter much to me

I told her she took it badly felt sorry for my slow demise it‘s alright I told her sadly I‘ll just wait for my black hearse ride but its alright we all got it coming and there‘s a million little things I want to say there‘s a million little things I'd rather do but if it never comes to that I‘m just glad that I had you I hid it dealt with it badly but ignoring didn‘t lead to bliss I slept long was never at ease my heart just beating way too strong but it‘s alright we all got it coming and there‘s a million little things I want to say there‘s a million little things I'd rather do but if it never comes to that I‘m just glad that I had you
7.
I took some drugs so you took them too you took some more than was good for you and you drained away like the fucking devil we talked so much all through the night and all you said, yeah well, you were right so we made some love like the fucking devil what am I gonna do what am I gonna say we're going down, down, down, down, down like all in this tinseltown I wrote work off, I was full of it I'd rather wake and then take a hit I‘m as stoned as a Sphynx and as free as the fucking devil so sing a song and sign away your soul to the lord of rock n roll and be one with the great red fucking devil what am I gonna do what am I gonna say we're going down, down, down, down, down like all in this tinseltown

Apathy 04:25
I've been a long time running from a longtime friend it's just so hard to let things go yeah, it's hard without a home I've been hard time drinking in these hard days, mom it's just so hard to just forget yeah, it's hard in an wound up head but I'm too skinny to survive this cold but I don't mind that you don't love me please try to pretend for a while 'cause soon enough I will end and die I've been a sick time sleeping in this ragtag bed that is made of shit an stone yeah, it's hard sleeping all alone but I'm too broken to grow this old but I don't mind that you don't know me please try to pretend that you think you do and soon enough I will end and die and soon enough I will end and die in the end...

about

When The Ruins formed in 2007 as an acoustic folk trio, little did they know that by 2019 they'd be hammering out grungy, distorted rock tunes as a five piece band, combining all the different genres and influences the band members are inspired by. Powerful melancholy songs about the wasteful, pointless and boring ways we spend our lives, hallucinogenic travels through space and time, death and the devil fill their upcoming album CREATURE. Finally, the loud and rocking live band has a fitting representation on disc.
