It’s just not fair, as bitterness sets everywhere.
Emotions grow hollow when people don’t follow.
I swear there are toxins in the air.
What will remain as we all forget our own names?
As brother kills brother, we live for another.
Weighed down by fabric and chain.
So stay away from vanity.
This world isn’t worth fighting for.
Oh, stay away from humanity.
It’s rotted itself to the core.
It’s not the same, as we try our hardest to change.
As gears turn over, and years grow older, I swear it’s just not the same.
What will remain as we do it all for fame?
As we abandon our mothers for unholy lovers, as self hated bodies will hang.
This world is not worth fighting for.
And I feel you now, but we’ll be gone within the hour.
Don’t waste your time breathing, there’s not a single reason.
So try to relax for a while.
And I’ll miss you most, so follow Him back to our home.
All the stories that you’ve been told, where the streets are paved with gold;
Follow Him back to our home!
Wind beat and weathered by the storm
We see no land in sight but we still stay the course
And we’ve been lost at see for so very long it seems
But somehow we knew we’d be alright.
And we’ve seen so many lost along the way
Claimed by your waves you’ll rage and your beautiful face
Clouds rolling in but soon the night will come again
But still we sail strong until this journey ends
So bring the rain and let your fury pour rain down on me
With your most mighty of storms
That’s what’s in store
I feel you staring from below
Your black seas run deep and they stir anxiously
And I hear your voice but your words wont get to me
From the depths I hear your cries but this anchor still holds me
I see the eye of your storm and now you’re gone (there’s no turning back now)
Red skies ahead but we fail warning
We’ll go down with the ship we’ll see this through
You came for every single second I had
The way I loved you from just under my breath
Was a constant reminder that what beat in my chest
Wasn’t mine anymore I’d guessed
You swore the sun you’d never do this again
Let down your guard and leave here more than a friend
There was a fire there could be one again
Where’s the map telling me to begin
'Cause I won't let you burn out tonight
And you be the reason
I’ll be the rhyme
We’ve both got way too much ahead
to worry ‘bout what we’ve left behind
So you keep the beat
We’ll stay on time
And fill the pages with just how both our worlds collide
When I’m left in your eyes
You needed something you could hold with your hands
Something rebellious that you don’t understand
Something that you were sure we’d never remand
Won’t you please clue me in on the plan
Let’s just stay here. Don’t breathe. Ignite
to worry bout what we’ve left behind
I hope to everything you never release
This hold you have on me
Where there’s your signature on every piece
Of my heart that there could be
When I whisper of my woes
How can anyone hearWhen the din of their own livesIs ringing in their earsForcing a smile as they glanceFrown as they look awayPlease somebody turn aroundI’m really not okayYou refuse to see the signsA deluge of denialDrowns out my facial featuresThe absence of a smileObliged to ask how I amYour concerns I allayBut then again I would doI’m really not okayHold back the transparent tearsA dam of repressionI’ll be damned if anyoneSees through my confessionSlowly my world unravelsLife’s tapestry will frayMy pain has been tailor madeI’m really not okayI write poems and storiesKeep a diary with meLeave it in public placesHoping someone will seeAnd tell me how they have readUp to the present dayHold me close and say those wordsAre you really okay?
