Strange
Changes come with age
Some things disappear in a day
And some things slowly fade
And you and I are like the ink staining all the other pages

Shame
There’s nobody to blame
People interlace by mistake sometimes
It hurts to walk away
But we’re just cheap toys, perpetually breaking

We’re at the edge of the world again
A step back is a step forward
Been here before when we were innocent
I saw the signs but I couldn’t find the words
Now we’re stuck in a wasteland
Everyone in the dark adores you
So much regret for things I never said
I should’ve left
I always meant to

We’re at the edge of the world again
Time will never heal the distance
Been here before when we were innocent
Building this modern prison for so long

    My Interpretation"Strange
    Changes come with age
    Some things disappear in a day
    And some things slowly fade" Reflecting on how time goes on and nothing stays the same. Probably in a relationship?

    "And you and I are like the ink staining all the other pages" Saying that their relationship has a history now. Written in ink suggests that there is a big story behind it, and 'staining' probably means that something went wrong and got messed up & smudged and cant be removed from their past and thoughts.

    "We’re at the edge of the world again
    A step back is a step forward" They're at the edge of breaking up which is a world ending to them because of how much they mean to each other. Stepping back from the situation could do nothing to help and they'll still end up over the edge, broken.

    "Been here before when we were innocent
    I saw the signs but I couldn’t find the words" They've been almost breaking up for a long time and now theyve ruined each other by getting to this point so much. She could see it coming but didn't know what to say or what to do about it.

    "Now we’re stuck in a wasteland
    Everyone in the dark adores you" Now theyre stuck in the aftermath of destroying each other. IDK what everyone in the dark adores you means. Maybe everyone who only sees his side thinks that he is right, and she feels looked over

    "So much regret for things I never said
    I should’ve left
    I always meant to" She wishes she said something as soon as she could see it coming, especially because this bad situation has been around for so long

    "Shame
    There’s nobody to blame" (except themselves?) or maybe it was just bound to happen so there's no point in blaming either person

    "People interlace by mistake sometimes
    It hurts to walk away
    But we’re just cheap toys, perpetually breaking" Sometimes people get too close when they probably weren't meant to and they'd rather stay in chaos than have to deal with the loss, so they keep breaking and breaking.


    "We’re at the edge of the world again
    Time will never heal the distance" Time won't stop the hurt that the've put on each other or get them back together

    "Been here before when we were innocent
    Building this modern prison for so long" Modern prison might mean that everyone these days are trapped and caged in by other people.
