Perfectly failing. Sleep is overrated. And as words march across an empty screen I scream I'm scared that it is gone tonight. Never say those words we shared I'm scared that its gone tonight.

Leave me hanging. Three words to save the day. I'll cling to those words if you ever utter them again. Over and over me again. Its winter and you're chilled to the bones with anti-freeze to thaw out your heart. Or July these skies are like my open eyes with no disguise.

Perfectly failing. (Morning after the worlds collide) Sleep is over rated. (Morning after the worlds collide).And as words march across an empty screen I scream.

The morning after the worlds collide will you be standing on the brink? The brink of starvation of an empty heart cluttered with the remains of a useless boy.You won't wake up from this again (from this again) until the sun rears its head. And in saying that you loved me (You always said depression falls with the snow) (this is what you wanted) did it ever occur that it was a blatent lie? (Lies are colorblind, there is no white).

Perfectly failing. (Morning after the worlds collide) Sleep is over rated. (Morning after the worlds collide).And as words march across an empty screen I scream. (Morning after the worlds collide) I'm scared that it is gone tonight. Never say those words we shared I'm scared that its gone tonight.

So the pens run out, all that's left's white marker. Broken lead, torn paper, maybe this knife is sharper. Introduce a new way, a new way to suffer. Please welcome now. Hi my names you're worst nightmare. First step to recover is to make sure its over. Words like rope round my neck ensure this end is somber (GOODBYE). Second step is distance. Well that's already covered and the last step is best. Kill this pain with another drink for the better times, drink for the suicide notes in the trash, drink for what we have passed and I know (I know) that its gone. (that its gone) say good night (say goodnight) to old times GOODBYE.(You always said you wouldn't run away but you're gone today)
