As a star will fall,
I plummet from your sky,
and long to return to a world you've denied me.
Beneath my heartache,
I have made a promise:
To never let you forget.
You left your namesake,
and it will bleed
into you from every pore.
And even though I am most fallen from you...
I have still overtaken you.
But yet I still cannot find you...
I see black and white...
you see only gray.
I see black and white...
you see only gray.
Distorted image.
Pride clouded.
Unloved... Just because you taught me it's better to be accepted than respected.
I shut the door on you this time.
Don't return with your heart in your hands;
you are most fallen.

    General Commentsomeone has denied someone else from being with the other. denied them happiness.they want a type pf revenge. not actaully revenge but similar to i suppose. sorry im a tad tippsy at the moment. i actaully kind of see it as yet another conversation. but its only really one person talking to the other. nothing is spoken form the other. They are denying that they are still in love with that other person, 'And even though I am most fallen from you' or it could actaully be a convo with both speaking. now that im a tad drunk and fuck i hate to be drunk doing this becaue its seems a tad disrespectful. but i degress. and when the other person says they are most fallen the other person replies saying well if you arent in love with me then why this?and why this?. hm. everything situation results in a completly different intrepretaion i suppose.

    General CommentWell he talks about namesakes and teaching him that it is better to be accepted than respected, so I can only assume that he is speaking to one of his parents, not a lover. From his words, my call is that he did something that they don't approve of, yet he believes in. They must have deserted him or something, and he doesn't think that's right to be left all alone and unloved just because he stood for something as opposed to just doing what would gain acceptance.
