Glimpses of the future
Ride out past familiar
Success becoming failure
Meaning everything you say
Living like today's the day
The hopelessness won't fade away
You're on your own

Head from a broken promise
Held you back

Taking on your own control
Finding out what you don't know
Leaving what took it's toll
Meaning everything you say
Living like today's the day
Hopelessness won't fade away
You're on your own

Head from a broken promise
Held you back
It held you back

(A promise is broken)

I can't take this any longer
I will die or become stronger
I can't take this any longer
I will die or become stronger
I can't take this any longer
I will die or become stronger
I can't take this any longer
I will die or become stronger

    General CommentI'm guessing he gets left by someone that promised him eternity. So know he realizes he has two choices either let himself die on the inside and give up or fight back and control himself.
