you hold your hope, dangled like a daunt frustrated and helpless placated and restless you're moving and fading through paper planes of hating no words to cut the tension unloved and apprehensive so long saying goodbye to flood lamps and flashlights to brighten up these exits I'm childish like a dream and angry like a teen and forced to settle endlessly in all adult routines I fell in love with my duress its painful I confess but I wouldn't have it other ways shes mine and Im obsessed so long saying goodbye to flood lamps and flashlights to brighten up these exits cut off all the white lines connecting our soft sighs to mirrors in isolation.

How can you stand and face these things well I'm just bored beyond belief put the keys back in I'll just wait right here and take some time to think Moving forward never meant that much to me cut the heels tell me how it feels to live with this defeat Well I've seen this place before 'til now its never hurt me more can your intentions find another place to hide or will you nail it to your door Lost emotions can you make it back again follow suit with another group you've got them in your hands CAN YOU WAIT!

Mirror 01:23
It's freezing cold I hear your breath you close your eyes the steam blows west another sore blue black and bleeding another pore you sweat yourself a self portrait painted to look like someone else the shades are grey but you can barely tell my hands are dry but you're so forgiving my heart is wry but you can't stop repeating well I'm hearing nothing, nothing outside my hands my pitch is dark, and my tone is so demeaning well I'm feeling something, maybe I'm just dreaming theres a mirror I've got and I hate that I'm still there

I need this like a hole into my head I'm steady and sinking in my hate the ships going down the ships going down it's hopeless now and all that time you spent not living and all the things you gave away I count the seconds on my fingers of all the times I wish I'd stayed I've been ignoring inhibitions so I'll sleep this night away so you stay inside your circle it doesn't matter anyway holding on gets nowhere as long as we keep moving there's no time left for air

Cars 2 03:26
Im terrified of nighttime because I can't sleep falling short on notions I've had in dreams but I won't let you in that door for me is closed a broken feeling bothered by the other things I've spoke and it's such a waste of time though it might be right I'm sick of my emotions they only let me feel can I be made of plastic these bones that make me real I'm sad and desperate I only want this over I want to rip them out and it's such a waste of time though it might be right Can't I just be normal can't I just not think let the waves crash over and let the plane smash, sink.
