Do you ever sit down

And everything that's ever happened

Crashes upon you at once


You're drowning in air

Unable to see

Exhaustion plays no part in the role of rememberance


And you are reminded of those people

The ones that helped, the ones who betrayed

They say that people change

They don't

People don't change

They adapt


They say that the history of the world can change in a single moment

And you think of all your moments

And the pain, and the regrets, and the sadness

As our society would say, it's sad, beautiful tragic


And you think and think 

And you're engulfed in this nightmare

People move around you, not knowing that

You're mentally breaking


Wave after wave

Crashes on you

You struggle to keep yourself afloat

But as one memory passes

Another dawns itself upon you

You're suffering


The world is upside down

What did we ever do to deserve this

To be swallowed in the sea


But we come up, and we go to shore

We walk along the heavenly beaches

Each grain of sand has its own story to tell

And now we know we will never escape

The memories are just haunting 

Forms of torture


And once this is realized, we start to accept

And with acceptance comes a cure

With the knowledge that a promised past

Can lead to a hopeful future 


And you won't rid yourself of what you have done

No one really does

But if you never stop fighting

Against those demonic, cruel things

You will succeed

And you will continue

And the world will be right side up again
