Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

Under watchful eyes
No room for lies
No time for pleasantries
Blast them into obscurities

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

Why bother with explaining
It's all too emotionally draining
Once again, it's just not fair
And I'm trying hard not to care

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

Just pretend and save face
I've already fallen from grace
Ready, here comes my smile
Even though I'm hurting all the while

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

Shh quiet, don't say a word
Sorry just forget what you heard
Don't listen, apparently I'm insane
Driven mad from all this pain

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

I sit back and wait
While the puppet master decides my fate
It's a performance with no cause
I'm dying to the sounds of applause

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

I could choose to lay it all out
And finally confront the doubt
But out loud, no I couldn't
I want to though I shouldn't

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

I'll cut the strings and avoid the gaze
And look beyond the deciteful haze
Surpass that growing abyss
And cannonize all of this

Don't pity me
I'll write you into infamy

Listen to your love
Though it may be lost
What about the soul
The essence of life, so, too has desire
I see the absence is tragic
But come friend, may you see the beauty

A wonderful thing, beauty
See how it befriends love
Who could know that it is a combination most tragic
Who could know that soon both are lost?
Leaving behind an aching desire
A pain that disfigures the soul

Ah the soul
That which shows the beauty
Of the person and your deepest desire
Granting you the ability to love
Even if it is lost
You must embrace the tragic

I understand, I see how it starts
I've experienced the feeling
I know how hard it is to stop
I believe in addiction

No one can give the same comfort
No one will give me that rush
No one tries as hard to make it go away
No one, no one

It promises things will get better
It says you just need a little more
It tangos with the blood in my veins
It whispers ideas in my ears

Drugs don't say no
Drugs don't lie
Drugs don't forget
Drugs don't leave

More, all I want is more
More time to do them
More moments alone with them
More, More, More

Wait, just don’t move
I have nothing left to prove
All I have is your smile
So please let it linger here a while

Wait, just let me catch a breath
If I don’t I’ll surely slip into death
But by you just standing there
I know you must care

Wait, say it again
Whisper sweet nothings to me, my friend
You’re voice is my favorite song
I could listen to it all night long

Wait, remain next to me
Grant me this one last plea
Before my eyes open and this all goes away
Keep this dream alive, will it to stay

Wait, please just wait
I promise it’s never too late
I know you believe
There’s no rush to leave

Wait, but what for
You’ve already shut the door
No need to say goodbye
Cause all that’s left is you and I

& I find myself staring at the moon
basking in her light
hoping she will give me guidance
praying she will help me fight

& I feel that God is in the rain
perhaps those drops are his tears
I see them fall to earth
then I know that he can hear

& I see the stars withall their gleam
they glow above without a care
showing me there is always light
there is always someone there

& I watch the clouds roll by
they block out all the bad
with every storm that passes through
it takes with it all the pain I had

& I know the sun burns hot
his heat would leave me asking
will your warmth always be around
now I know his fire is ever lasting

& as long as I have the moon
the clouds, the rain, the sun
the infinte sky of stars
then my life will never come undone

Fariy tales, they’re not real
Happily ever after isn’t part of life’s deal
Prince charming doesn’t just arrive
Sad, loving tears won’t keep you alive

There’s no wicked spell that explains all the bad
No fairy godmother to help when you’re sad
No magic mirror that shows all
No saving grace to catch you when you fall

They’re just silly stories filling you’re head
Comforting words while you lay there in bed
Don’t waste away waiting for them to come true
Trust me dear, it’s not worth it to you

Life is what happens when you’re busy making plans
Love sneaks up while you’re simply holding hands
Try not to worry, eventually things are okay
It all evens out at the end of the day

These stories, well they’re just that
We can always walk away no matter how long we’ve sat
And waited for the one
Be happy my love, you’re story’s far from done

So that story book ending
Honey it’s simply pending
Promising to show its face
When you’re happy in that far, far away place

Waves are hurled from the sea
Smacking the rocks with chaotic symmetry
The sand is bothered yet not unmoved
Unsure what the water tried to prove
The sand settles down as it should be
And the waves are called back by the sea
The water whips and falls unforgiving
A body of water truly living
For this emotion could come from nothing less
Than an angry soul caught in distress
Hurt and reliving
A cruel reality deceiving
This pain is what throws the water around
What makes the waves crash to the ground
The sea is in love with the land
And desperately tires to capture the sand
There is no sadder sound
Than a lover losing a love found
But such is the tale of land and sea
A constant struggle of crossed destinies
As the water re-tracks, the land breaks apart
Shaken to the core by its broken heart
Like the water, the land wishes to be free
And wants more than a kiss as the waves leave
The land prays the water to return
And extinguish the passion that burns
Because the land is in love with the sea
And curses the forces that wont let them be
Dear reader, might you never learn
What it truly means to want and yearn
Each in love and unable to speak
The sea dries up and the land grows bleak
A tragedy given a voice
Through pen marks and word choice
In nonexistence, I believe them together
Cosmically intertwined forever
