lyrics

I will never forget what I’ve learned
‘Cuz I built every bridge that I burned
I stand alone with fires all around
With my line drawn six feet underground

How could this have gone awry
Never wanted to hurt you or see you cry
But it all went bad so fast
The good times never last

And you,
You were just the latest
In my silly little games
And you,
You were just the greatest
In my infinite shame
I tried to keep you at arm’s length
I found that I have no strength

This void inside of me
I thought it set me free
Hide in the black inside my heart
While my life falls apart
.
No matter how much time I take
I never feel awake
Spinning circles around my head
The vultures come for their dead

And you,
You were just the latest
In my silly little games
And you,
You were just the greatest
In my infinite shame
I tried to keep you at arm’s length
I found that I have no strength
