The Calendar, The Energy (If This Is You Then Woe Is Me)

I'm looking at a photograph of heaven
And the personnel they let in
Expose the souls they're not afraid to show

I'll analyze the world and all it's people
Concluding everyone is evil
And I more so than anyone
I know
I have my faults
But I'd so much rather look at yours
And pretend I have none at all
But who am I kidding anyway

I won't give you the satisfaction
Of seeing me when I'm like this
Cause honestly you wouldn't like this
So close your eyes and watch me hide

I won't give you the satisfaction
Of seeing me broken and bleeding
A life that is barely still breathing
So close your eyes and watch me hide
Watch me hide

So I'll wander off where no one else can find me
And the silence will remind me
That this is more sobering than
I thought
I could hold on
To that old familiar lie that is
Pretending nothing's wrong
But who am I kidding anyway

And I thought it'd be okay
For innocence to melt away with age
But sometimes as you grow smarter
Your heart grows harder

The stupid things that those around us do
Often make us angry, and teach us not to follow suit
But just be sure your heart stays full
Not emptied out and cynical

Lately, yourself is someone you can't be
And I say if this is you, then woe is me

    General CommentThis isn't a Relient K song; it's a song by Matt Thiessen of Relient K. Nonetheless, its a good song.
