​Soil

This song is by Counterparts and appears on the album The Difference Between Hell And Home (2013).

Tragedy is all we have in common, and at times we allow it to swallow us whole
Drawing the marrow from our misfortunes to ignite the fire that's inside, inhale the smoke from the burn that leaves you breathless
Breathing life into the lifeless, dragging them into the sun and exposing them as apparitions
But is there dignity in living as an entity? "You could have made history, and we are already forgetting about you." Humanity is poison, and we are lost without a cure
So stop your heart and start the healing process
I am not fit to walk among you, but I don't want to end my life
And just know that If I knew of any common ground, I'd leave here now, and when I got there I would build a home that I could die in
Just to say I tried to rest in peace
Erase me from your memory
The ones we love will let us down, and the rats will feed off of our failure
Eventually, this is something that we must accept
The world moves on without us
We leave only footprints that fade away in time
We leave our spirits to retrace our steps
Walk with fire, and save yourself from vagrancy
You are your memorial, find your mark and make it
The soil is the last thing we ingest, we watch our ashes scatter
You are your memorial, find your mark and make it
