I close my eyes to see what's real
But there's nothing, there's nothing there
Screamed at this world, both arms outstretched
It just laughed and I coughed blood

I've waged a war that I can't win
And all these walls are closing in
Could it be me, could it be so
That sour taste is letting go

I looked above, I searched the skies
For a silver lining, for a reason why
Every word I said, I fucking meant
I can't press rewind, I can't take it back

I've waged a war that I can't win
And all these walls are closing in
Could it be me, could it be so
That sour taste is letting go

I can't win
This life's a path built on graves
Of those who tried and died before
As they soared towards the sun
They burned their wings and they were gone
And they were gone
