The object you're holding now
Is tragically incomplete
Decaying like radium
Unstable as kerosene
It used to belong to me
But now it is yours to keep

And it's hard
It's hard to be the strong one
Reaching out for something
You don't even know what
And it's hard to
Penetrate the darkness
Voluntarily blindfolded
Knowing when you see it
Doesn't matter

The problem with being used
You feel like the guilty one
And put the blame on yourself
'Til you don't trust anyone

Uncomfortable in my skin
I want to relive this life
Blissfully ignorant
And easily satisfied

    General CommentNO COMMENTS? well i''m not too surprised because I thought that this song seemed very incognito (dont ask me what i mean by that) but i really like the lines where he says it's hard. especialy the last time he says it. hard to penetrate the darkness voluntarily blindfolded knowing when you see it doesn't matter. i feel like i dont know what people are going to think of me, what they think of me initially, sometimes i feel like in order to get to konw and understand people you can't judge them so i try to have this accepting attitude where i will listen to anything and believe anything just to understand how a person really feels. even if they think lowly of me. i try hard no to judge. of course this isn't 100% my life becasue this is just how i feel right now but yeah.
