Lights off 02:14
All my friends are walking away As my perspectives disapeared I loose my temper every time I shut the door Every second is another missed shot Never thought I’d be so weak, (Where the fuck is my common sense ?) Never thought, I’d be so strong, But how does it feel eyes wide open ? Lights off, I can hear you crying, Empty pack of medicine, These scars on your forehead, My hands are full of blood Knee deep in this nonsense shit , You can’t stand on this tightrope It’s a moving forward, Not a runaway I’ve clean the mess in my head, But when I look In your eyes I see nothing but myself Falling over again Just can’t unsew my mouth A few words to fix this Place your hands in mine So I can crush them hard again
Lifelines 02:14
I feel so sick to my stomach When I think nothing's about luck But wrong decisions that I've made What does it feel like to be me? Terrible feelings with cheap wine And all those things I'll never be Keep waking me up at night I swear my days won't pass me by In the lights of the river bed I draw something meaningful My existence scares me to death Still obsessed by a better "me" I'm trying as hard as I can To build my life as a piece of art I want my best friends to be proud Not to stand next to a complete wreck Because I've hit the bottom, A thousand times trapped in a maze But I'm reborn, let's get reborn May my dark thoughts stay with me To turn them all into a blaze If it feels like nothing's changing We'll fight in an alcoholic haze With our broken hearts raging And shape dirty comets with our names To forget that exists Is a terrible weight to carry
Have you ever thought about your birthday as a funeral? Cause I do, I do, still striving to sleep And from the start I've learnt how to live all alone So terrified by all those things I never wanted to be Staring at a glass I can barely hold in my hands A thousand failures drawn on my lifeline I keep drinking fast to hide how scared I am And fuck myself (over again) 'til I black out So, I raise my glass, keeping me safe from my greatest fears Choked up with bruises, wishing for the sun to never come The weight from my choices is too much for me to carry When the bartender has to drive me home...
Rooms 01:28
Drowning in the promises I made, I suffocate, These hands I took are now blindfolding me, Was it easier before ? Not excepting this, not what I wished for, I feel alone but I understand, Stop drowning my frustrations in these parties, Cheap talks that I spit in my beer, Better be soaked with sweat and tears Living in denial, waiting for people to become models, Need to make some room for the real me and you I’ve been watching over my shoulder Searching for an answer in my past, So afraid to face what’s in front As it could be a mirror I quit living in the other's plans Time is running out, no place for a dream, Now every second I become more awakened Gotta get up and run before I rust Start acting, take all this in my hands, choke it This time I’m sure I can handle it
Broken but not defeated Rough roads for troubled hearts We never played to win But we own this time anyway Our caravel guided by the endless summer nights Keeps thundering under the trembling skies The more miles, the less trouble 'Cause in this basement We'll always find someone Closer than our families've ever been Let the engine drown out the heartache Let the rain wash away the pain Broken but not defeated Friendship for heavy hearts We never played to win But we own this place anyway My misfortune companions as only witnesses Are tending their flayed fates in the backseat Dim lights of cities will keep us warm But I'm still talking in my sleep
