Chapter Two: Vows
"Everything about this is saving you and shaping you to be a better man.
You've got this far, and now I've got to let you go, but I don't know if I can.
Oh, No! That look in his eyes again. Wet palms from the sins he's about to commit.
Commitment can't be his kiss of death. Eyes closed. He's letting in all of his demons.
The thought of being anyone else - it puts me at ease, so I'm becoming someone else to leave it all behind.
Barren valleys occupy my guts. I can't quite seem to sew them shut.
They're dry and empty. I'm dry-heaving nothing. Oh, I can't seem to throw up all these butterflies biting away at my bellyside.
They once flew just like innocent doves, but now they're parasites that bite me from the inside out.
Oh, No! It's like swallowing acid rain. One dose won't suffocate my passage ways, so I'll drink my liver dry and kill everything that haunts me inside.
We were just kids, and no one knew that it'd ever come to this. I thought you were consumed by childhood blues. Now it's come to this.
I wish I could have done something to soothe your wounds. Instead you let the demons get the best of you.
Come with me, and I'll show you a way out. We'll run away from all the animals biting away my insides - eating me alive."
