lyrics

I can't fight the past, no matter how hard that I try. Digging deeper as I go, I'll find all these past skeletons left ignored. I can't keep burying it all in time. The clocks not my friend, but she's leaving me signs that my youth is tainted and I finally see. Every step is six feet deep and there's no god damn eulogy. But I feel my emotions getting the best of me again (don't watch me sink)

How'd I get this low this year? I'm learning and falling in harmony, that's there no perfect path to life. (always take what you can get) Therapy in love and chaos in all the lust. I can't forgive everything, but watch me try to (I'll fade away)

And I'll fantasize about stepping into traffic and stop every critic and friend from laughing. But I keep watching all these burnt down homes, I get this sick pleasure from the past (can't get you out) There was no love left for you and I can't cry at your funeral. I left you low and alone. These past few years that I've grown and will learn from my mistakes that this can't be how I work. Fight for myself and leave the rest behind. Because I need to be selfish for the first time in my life. Drain my bank account to chase my dreams and everything in between. Because my hearts going to always be on my sleeve. You may never understand, but I'll keep trying until I'm dead. You won't know when I'm gone.
