You can't change someone who doesn't want to change


I’m not too good with the hard truth
But this one hit me straight like a train, how I must explain
Now I’m not so sure, that all these plans I’ve made
Aren’t just another masquerade, how I need some aid…

"Oh rest assured this little
Pinch can afford the blissful"
You got me bending but it’s never too easy to break
And while you’re ripping apart
You’ll have me sit back and watch
You whisper love and yet
It’s hard to be faceless… and want acclaim
And no matter how you rephrase it

Still it stands aflame
I can’t wash off the stain


You brought me back for more
How I swore and swore again
Feel the brittle bones, of every soul you dispensed
And while you fight the cold
I look up, man that’s getting old
Can you hear what I would give to be faceless
Cause no matter how you retrace this

Still it stands aflame
I can’t wash off the stain


I’ve been dying riding on by through the wasteland air
Don’t let me fall out, you couldn’t be more specific
As you were so high, inclined to leave behind, but I doubt

I’ve been dying riding on by through the wasteland air
But now I’ve fallen out, let me be made explicit,
The fraction of you I could find has left behind
No more doubt, and if there’s any grace left

Then she’ll see a new day,
It won’t be all in vain, no no no no no
