lyrics

Well I’m back in the dark with another question mark
Somehow feels like the end, but seven steps behind the start
Now you’re off on your own, go outside and meet your goals
You don’t need a thing like me putting smudges on your soul
But then again I’ve never been about coincidences
Fate doesn’t have to MATE Mr. and Mrs.
Songs play for a reason as we go along
And we understand why we fought
I look at every red car that passes me by
I wish I hadn’t, but it catches my eye
I hope it passes in time, I don’t know what I’m expecting
But I guess it’s the next best thing, you’ll show ‘em
YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM. YOU’LL JUST HAVE TO FIND OUT
MAYBE YOU’LL GET IT RIGHT ON THE TENTH TIME AROUD
YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM. LET THE FEAR BE KING
LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE
LOOKING OUT FOR NUMBER ONE, YOU’LL SHOW ‘EM
If it helps, I’ll be fine. I’ll stop keeping you in mind
Stop this self-destruct the door shut, I’ll stop messing up in time
But as far as I knew, it was unconditional
But I think the thought gets lost with the unoriginal
Pulling back the curtain you saw the wizard
Just saw flaws, understandable with your back turned
Delivered the message “The Messinger Ended”
Never return to sender, lesson learned
Earned trust, but it didn’t mean much
When you hold your standards a little too high up
I can accept that I don’t make a dent on the world, but I’m content
I understand it’s scary, reality being real
And to a point I understand how you feel
But it’s not about what happens to to you, it’s what you do with it
And if you want perfection, I’ll ruin it
With what I was taught to be actual thought,
Now it’s all just covered in frost.
Finding your hairs on everything, bringing back memories,
Willingly, still killing me. You can’t take these memories away, but I wish you could.
It looks like you’ve got your priorities in order
You’re free, now go show ‘em that you’re strong
You looked fate in the eye, said it’s not for you
And I’m not afraid to say that you’re wrong
So one glorious day you’ll find a guy who treats you
The way you’d like to be treated
Just make sure when he beats you, you smile
‘Cause you were stubborn, but never defeated
The first buried me, the second dug me up
And to the third, the burn and the grave weren’t big enough
I wasn’t unreliable, I showed my skin
And I knew I was at risk of having you under it
You were afraid of life, so instead jumped ship
Made me want to die, instead of just live
And the funy thing is that I wish every one of you the best.
Now go show the rest.
