I look down and all I see are strings
Attached to my feet, tied around my ankles
I hear an engine rev in the distance
Sound of the engine goes distant
As I see the strings
Rise atop the ground
I panic, there's no escape in sight
I get dragged along the rocky ground
Bumps and cuts and scrapes and blood
All over my body, there's no escape in sight
Is there no escape or am I scared to cut
Cut the strings and let go
Let go of something that wasn't real
Something that was never real
There's ringing in my ears, people are talking. About me, about what I've done and who I've hurt. But I hope to god, it's not you, my love, the one I hurt. They say time heals all wounds but mine never will. Leaving me behind, bruised and scarred with a bottle of pills. She followed me into darkness and I let go her hand. Naive and foolish had no leg to stand. So here I am, I ran. Cowardly without a second glance. Her walls closed in as I quickly escaped. Started to lose her breath as she came to her fate. Beaten and broken, she limps through life all sad and alone. Praying for a Prince Charming, to sweep her off her feet. Until then she will continue to weep. Cause she can't stand the way that she feels. Beaten and broken, the tears continue to stream. Not up but down her life goes as everything comes to a halt. So she pops a couple of pills, downs a bottle, and waits for her heart to start and throttle. The pain consumes her entire life, she doesn't exist anymore. All there remains are her broken pieces along the ****** floor.
You're my favorite memory, but that's all you'll ever be. Pieces falling from infinity, causing ruckus beneath me. Felt no pain like this before, making me so insecure. Thinking out loud to what I've done, look at me and what I've become.
You walk around
Pushing people away
Its your insecurities
That makes you feel this way
I'm that dude that'll make you laugh
I'm that dude that'll never last
I'm that dude that'll give his heart
I'm that dude that'll fall apart
I'll never have that forever and ever
There's no reason for me to ever last
So I'll be alone and drown in my thoughts
End up taking these seven shots
Sniff and taste a few more lines
Feeding this fire for one last time
I drift off into this beautiful dream
So now, here I am, I am forever asleep.
I'll tell you one last time, there's no need to cry because I'm just fine. Falling in reverse within this hearse, as they carry me to my final site. Lay me down and say a few more prayers, but remember this, I don't need a savior. I'm fine with what I've done, settled all my demons. The time had come, so hold all your tears.
Sitting in this bar and just like that my life turned around. Saw this beautiful gal with the slightest frown. She looked at me and then straight back down. Knew she was a mystery with tons of history. Calming my nerves and ask for one more shot. Thinking back on all my thoughts. This is just destiny, it has to be. Thought to myself what is there left to lose but my dignity. So I go over and introduce myself. She smiles and looks back at me. Caught a glimpse of her eyes as her twinkle sent me sky high. The night went well, she gave me her number. As they say, the show is now over.
