On the boundary of reason, you lead a recovery To stay in the lines at the cost of your sanity You’re not meant to be like them You will paint a reflection that you’ll never be And you will die for brilliance veiled in foundations of lies and deceit And you will hide everything about you that’s anything but flawless You cut out the heart of the person you could’ve been You trade in your conscience for somebody else’s skin Once altered to taste, you’ll see what you’ve feared The image you’ve sought for so many years Is far from as perfect as the things you used to see And yet you still paint a reflection that you’ll never be You will die for brilliance veiled in foundations of lies and deceit And once you hide everything about you that’s anything but flawless And they have shattered an exception And that’s when you’ll see they have won We can only see the beauty buried beneath Can’t you see, my dear? You are all you have left to fear

You have embraced the awful A petty excuse for an author Scripted a false conviction Cast out what you believed in And here we are A vain attempt to light the dark You’ll never see that this is love A constant chance to rise above And we’re not coming down You want to be the answer you’ve defined And you won’t ever question why So go ahead and revel in what you’ve revised You didn’t change a thing this time I had no doubt you would edit the meaning out Like all clichés, you will lie in the bed you’ve made Right your wrong, and write yourself out Here we are, and we’re not coming down You want to be the answer you’ve defined And you won’t ever question why So go ahead and revel in what you’ve revised You didn’t change a thing this time

I’m just the letter lost and better left unfound The vessel of redemption cut loose and run aground I am the messenger that never made a sound Right now I might as well be lost in reverie No cause left for the consciousness you ever could call me Content with defeat, I tell myself that this is who I am That I planned to be this apathetic A pathetic lack of plans, I’ll resign with but a sigh Forget there ever was a reason why I was trying to be something in a home that doesn’t want me It’s better being nothing when it’s all I’ve ever been Right now I might as well be lost in reverie No cause for the consciousness you ever could call me I would rather die than live with what I’ll never become

everybody meets their end some will leave as they began in a hospital bed at their time sometimes we're taken away stolen back to where we came i never believed you would die at twenty nine all along we're meant for this moving forward to exist we live on and we will never be whole again but i just wish you'd open your eyes and you'd wake up and you'd see what you'll never see and this time all of our ends would meet but it seems even the best of dreams will fade and we all end up the same only a memory

You preach to the deafened Your voices speak to no one Your droning drowns in its own decay You failed your lessons by mimicking the echoes That cry for you to find your own way You have defied them This is everything that you deserve Know the horror of the wrong you’ve earned When you’re the helplessness you sing about, only I can save you So I hold in every breath Until the air in me begs to forget that it ever found peace in my lungs And it screams up my throat to my tongue It forms the words that end this all The moment beckoning to fall With a wind bellowed deep from my chest At last I’ve begun the collapse I tremble with the sound of letting go The wretched ring of everything I had in me My heart unfurled, I exorcise the silence from this world This is everything that you deserve This is everything that you deserve This is everything that you deserve (This is what you’ve forgotten This is what you've forgotten) This is everything (This is what you’ve forgotten)

Skyline 03:42
we have shrouded our lives in the shadow of infinite night but i still look to the skyline and know we'll see the light
