The secrets that we keep, they don't do justice to our good deeds. This feeling I can't shake, that I can't be heard. Why does this darkness feel so familiar?

As I begin to breathe, I awake to a new direction; this overwhelming sadness that won't leave.
Stay strong, stand tall, I'm here for you. All words that fall short of healing the wounds.

This distant doom (Can you hear me? Can you feel me?) There's nothing here for me. No greatness to achieve. You can't get over it. Just suppress, then count the days until the feeling comes back again.

I've got this feeling, this shortness of breathing
I've got the courage but don't have the meaning
I lose in love, I lose in life
These walls built to protect
Me cause my disconnect

I set the course; opening the same doors I have before. I've pushed you so far away, I can't make up this space. Looking in the same goddamn mirror every night, I stare and wonder why I can't fight.

You're to be held, not to be missed. You've shown the greatest love I've ever witnessed. I hope you get the life you see in your dreams, even if it's not including me.

I've got this feeling, this shortness of breathing
I've got the courage but don't have the meaning
I lose in love, I lose in life
These walls built to protect
Me cause my disconnect

The secrets that we keep, they don't do justice to our good deeds. This feeling I can't shake, that I can't be heard. Why does this darkness feel so familiar?

I want it back. I miss the bond of our skin, I miss the touch of your hand.
I want it back, I want it back. And I want it bad.

I can't shake, I can't shake, I can't shake this.
Far away from the place I feel safest
I'm reaching out as I watch you leave.
You're abandoning me, you're abandoning me.

I can't shake, I can't shake, I can't shake this.
Far away from the place I feel safest
I'm reaching out as I watch you leave.
You're abandoning me, you're abandoning me.

You can't undo every word you've muttered out of turn.
You've been conditioned to hate, some things can't be unlearned.
Wrong ; you're condemned and fit to be misled.
This can't be dead. This can't be dead.
