"Because my hands are stained does not make yours cleaner. Because I'm weak does not make you stronger. Innocence is a myth, superiority is a lie."
The world seems a little clearer now as I rest my head and close my eyes... I never feel like I belong. And I don't want to hate myself when I don't feel strong. I find it in myself to carry on, even when I feel alone... Promise lies heavy on my mind, but I can't see truth from lies. I search for hope in your eyes, hope in my life. And Freedom is what I hope to find. I search for peace of mind, so I might know myself. I lost you somewhere along the way. Maybe if we worked on today, together we could put away our armor someday, and burn this empty cage... Nothing can be sure, and nothing here is pure, but still I look for answers and I lose myself in truth. When I find myself in dirt will I find you? I'm so in love with you. I'm finding things inside me I never knew... I am dirt. Blowing out of control in the wind. Nothing more than dirt. Nothing I feel could ever mean a thing. It sets me free, my empty cage, this heart of rage... This nothing is my everything. Heavy on my mind. I rest my head I close my eyes...
