Everything is so empty.
There's nothing here for me.
This town is just a collection
of dead ends and bad memories.
It permeates everything I do.
I was so convinced I could run away and just start again.
I ran so far away but I found that nothing changed.
Everywhere the emptiness that I tried to escape.
I found the same longing and desperation.
I found the pain I thought that I could leave behind.
See, the town is not the problem.
The problem lies in me
and the failures and regrets that distort everything I see.
I see it now so clearly
in the sun that never left the home I left behind.
The world is just a reflection of how I see.
A projection of the ugliness and hate I live and breathe.
Some things I can't outrun.
Memories like asphalt never fucking change.
Eyes turned blind to beauty.
I cannot escape.
