lyrics

So many times they tried to turn out this light
when there was nothing left to give, nothing left inside
Now close your eyes you've lost all control
Years of acceptance have taken their toll

Hopes for a better tomorrow, goodness comes and goes
The pain that seethes internal, no one will ever know
Just search inside to find what might be left
Tried with all your might, endless strength and deft

But when it comes down to it
sometimes interests clash
Relentless viruses
inside have attached
We're all zombies in this
implacable game
look out for yourself
you might be next to blame

Time is a way to
measure misery
The last thing you'll see
is this vacancy
subtle decomposition
explains a real resolve
a born enhancer
a reason to be enthralled

we're all enthralled

The need for recognition
slips past contempt
for the real solution
which is recklessness
a symptom of regression
passes wildly
a vision of true wisdom
perches gracefully

oh so gracefully

how many ways can i rely on passing time
to wash away the scars, i've endured in my mind
a misfortune faced with reality
now disappointment as far as eyes can see

i search internal and prepare my listless self
i raise the questions, the questions you'd beg in hell
the reward for my acts of heroine
anticipation for when all this starts again

Had I known what was in store
i would have seen all the pleasure sweating out of my pores
I know that I,
I acted primally to see beauty
the beauty of the acts that saints deplore
right now
I'm ready,
I'm ready for the world to see
that all
we really are
is distant tranquility
I'd beg but
i'm proud and
i want to feel the pain
this act of courage speaks to everything that i've gained
