I seem to have grown bitter
as the world around me rots away.
Not much left to keep me going,
nothing much left for me to say.
I try to keep my head up
while the world just holds it down
under the dirty water I swallow my fill,
breathing it in until I drown
I’ve lost my heart along the way
on this twisted path I travel.
And the truth comes out from hiding
as my life starts to unravel
I choke down all the lies
that I keep getting told.
Not a single word they tell me is solid
not a one that I can hold
And I’m sick of feeling tired
of the falseness in your face
For once just be here with me, for me
or forever leave this place
I have been losing admiration
for the ones I used to love.
Seeking guidance from ones I’ve lost
I look to them above.
Wanting absolution from this world
of blackened dust and dying land.
The sky is slowly burning down
upon the waters and whitened sand.
Tearing everything that I know
down to the muddied ground.
Sinking deep within this wreckage
can’t find a reason to be found.
I’ll stay here all by myself
and let it do its damage.
Fighting my way out of this one,
seems to be more than I can manage.
Down into the depths of hell
I am sure I will fit in nice.
Even as fire does surround me,
it can’t melt this heart of ice.
