Short-lived is the life and time you've given me
Broken down and shameful now but I wont tell you anything but a torn up story
Penned across the pages I have tried to burn, in hopes that you would never learn
But I can't stand to watch through eyes in speaking volumes
Through a heart that they could not defy
With arms held high the broken scream I love you
I loved you
And now this is the second time you'll pull the pin on this one
So pull it back and throw this away to find a way to blow this apart
I lay waiting as you contemplate me in your plan
I'll take the darker side of everything
To let you trace the constant fading in these eyes
To show me what this life is good for
Break down the walls of chivalry we build up for society and lay it all to the ground
You're seeing 20/20 while I'm seeing none but one, playing parts to find a predetermined end
So take the keys (to take control)
Now I control the wrecking ball with targets clearly crossed out in red
The guiltless brush from steel to stone, the rubble flies for everyone
With nowhere left to hide, none of us can feel so alone
And now this is the final time you'll pull the pin on this one
So pull it back and throw this away to find a way to blow this apart
I lay waiting as you contemplate me in your plan
I'll take the darker side of everything
To let you trace the constant fading in these eyes
To show me what this life is good for
I lay waiting as you contemplate me in your plan
I'll take the darker side of everything
To let you trace the constant fading in these eyes
To show me what this life is good for
Nothing more than broken endings
