lyrics

I remember the first time yesterday felt like it was worth all the world.
Tomorrow beckons at the call. I am a ticking time bomb.
This fury burns and I can’t breathe. Between false philosophies, I’m stuck and the clock’s power is ruining everything.

I watch my fortunes falling behind me.
Finding faith in memories that don’t exist.
There is no page to turn. Only ink to smear and come to cope with it.

They call this age. History spits in the face of every honest dream.
Empty and devoured at once, my mind races without me and I can’t find the story to tell.

It’s too late to try, the shame’s tattooed to my eyes.
My insides- a disguise. I hope they don’t seep through.
Father you raised me well, sorry no one can tell.
Your endeavors have reached about as far as mine.

I remember the first time yesterday felt like it was worth all the world.
Tomorrow beckons at the call. I am a ticking time bomb.
The world revolves around the end. The sunlight’s hope is gone again.
I’m stuck and my own constructions are ruining everything.

I had this dream that time stood still. The past gave up, and let go of us.
I had this dream that time stood still. Our hearts moved on and never looked back.
