I swim towards the shore
In a watery sea
That holds the only part of me
That I never wanted to be

Running so fast
That I slip and I fall
Never slowing down
Until I hit the same wall

The same dead silence
Made up of all the broken bits
Painted my shattered parts red
And then called them bricks

I cannot be weak
If I am standing so sure
I cannot be fooled
If this reality is pure

If this pain is real
And it's not just in my head, 
what i feel

Then maybe
Just maybe 
I can put an end to this torment
Finally stop this chaos

Salvage the remaining pieces of us
That was lost in the midst of wonder ad lust
Bandage the wounds that rendered me useless 
Win back the hope that I lost when everything seemed so fruitless 

When I look back now,
Under the mirror of the darkest lake
I see what I was meant to see
It's the memory that we live by,
Not the mistake 

I will live today 
And I will wake up tomorrow
I will laugh through my tears
I will love with my sorrow

Through all of this 
If I have learned anything,
It's that the talent of music
Is more than just being able to sing
