Slipping Away

i feel it all just slipping away
warm upon my skin
releasing the rust
burning from within

it drips down
into the water below
warmer than life
warmer than any death i'll know

dripping down from within
spreading its tendrils out
sinking into darkness
silence forever the shouts

i feel it all just slipping away
the numbness inside spreads
like the tendrils of rust
in my watery deathbed

it's so still here
the sounds all fade away
finally i have found peace
finally, i have come to decay
