Show me what you got
Fake it

Please don't you dare to say I wasn't there for you
Say what you will, you just didn't allow yourself to feel

Where blood runned with rage
It's now an empty shell
Thoughts dance in revolutions
Against recently painted walls

To the rythm of the distance we created
Vertiginously, making me sick
Breath in unison
Keep our hearts beating, keep our hearts beating fast
And the place I rested my head on
Is the same where doubt is born
I no longer see the difference
Between lethe and home

Hold back and clear the dust from my eyes
We're running now in circles, do you feel alive?
Hold back, it's not easy to grow old
Without growing apart from the heart

Finding ruin in the place that we built
I'm left to conquer your ghost
At least I can say I tried
I don't know you anymore
You flee, you escaped, you given up on me
Your shadow seems more familiar
Than your new and broken smile
I hate the fact that you're just fine

Trustworthy and persuasive
First you love it, then you hate it
A compass drawn in sand
Its lines spin with every lie
The maker and the destroyer
Of every fucking joy that's now faded
You said you'd never let me go
Only to finally put me down

Lost in time, floating in a moment
The stars remember that the sun came down
And it was all worth it
You held me back
And it was all worth it
Now no one remembers that
