lyrics

Patience
I don’t want to see you beat
The curtain call is quickly coming and
You’re strapped to the final scene;
Convinced it’s too late now and fixated on what might never be

If I fall before my enemies I’ll go down and be forgotten
But if I leave one lasting memory, I’ll be shot straight to the sun.
I’m not the only one

Let go of
Your scripted empathy.
You always swore we’d stand together,
Then started tumbling
The bright lights won’t die down
Illuminating what you’ll never be

The faster I fall, the more I forget the scars that I’ve worn were all pretend.
It seems to me the stars that burn the brightest always extinguish before they’re seen

If I fall before my enemies I’ll go down and be forgotten
But if I leave one lasting memory, I’ll be shot straight to the sun.
I’m not the only one
Who’s been hypnotized and tossed aside with bad intentions
I’m not the only one
Who’s modified the baseless lie I called a passion to hide the way I’m seen

Let down,
You can’t believe you’ve seen
The ending credits of ambition;
The supernova of a dream
I know it’s too late now
But at least you’re standing next to me
