I drank a bottle of charades while building up our palisades of confession, colosseums and unintended heartache Try to move at the speed of light minites to hours to find peace of mind sun up to sun down that part of my life bounce off the walls 'til i get this shit right! We're not here to take part! We're here to take over! I'm holding my self hostage in a fort we built from cardboard boxes negotiate from state to state before we cut our loses I'm holding my self hostage in a fort we built from cardboard boxes a house of cards and basement bars we're desperate and we're honest. You tried to build a jar around a fire fly so you could keep the glow that keeps you up at night but i'm leaving through the window its fight or flight I'll never fade away like your burnt out hype. So where do we draw the line in the sand does it come together like the pictures in your head they're vivid and irrepliceble You tried to build a jar around a fire fly Cause yo were always sick of having fate decide I'm here to beg the question are we wasting time Cause we're at pointe place and WE'RE ALL ALRIGHT

I've been beating myself up day and night thinking about these past few years how they've come and gone how you sleep at night like theres nothing wrong Cause I left us hanging by a thread over an open flame and I lit myself just to see if we could get out alive but I don't know if we can make it this time This is a free for all Against the master hand So keep the cameras rolling We carved our names in the concrete Bare knuckle bloodshed We won't take misguided urgencies So just know. I won't play. This game Some times the people we admire aren't always who they seem to be They hide behind a facade of smoke and mirrors With broken smiles and yellow teeth. And only a monster would think to use. A second chance as a weapon, theres no excuse I fear my world is under water. And I. Can't. Breathe. I fear my world is under water My fears consuming me. I hope you take this the wrong way. You tried the best of us in negotiation This is our response. A retaliation. We're still hoping for some day. See through the cracks of your own reflection An optimist craving attention. I hope you take this the wrong way!

This weight on my chest this gripping feeling Constantly unknowing if I miss this will I get a second chance. I'll bury the past, I'm on my own. This rivalry won't best the countless hours I have spent Searching and seeking and waiting in prey To capture me an audience, elite in number one to four make way. And I know, it must be hard for you to see me go But I promise. I'll be all right Take a deep breath and steady your hand. As this Pewter moon illuminates the mountains I imagine with my pallet that i'll paint these cities Yellow, Blue and Red! And I won't stop 'til you face me in the end. I'll meet you on the battlefield and call your bluff my friend I'm a jack of all trades So try and pretend to respect me I'm decorated in spades I'll show you the metal you'll know me by name Despite everything you throw at me I'm holding out until relief I'm not going down And I'm on the road to victory and I don't need you to believe Just step right up I've got you beat. You try to bring me down. You laughed at who I am You said i'd never amount to anything Well I've decided I'm not running anymore Tonights the night lets put 'em up And lets settle the score No. Wait. Don't worry I've got this Just be sure you've come prepared for a fight

I'm writing ransom notes with the person that I was five years ago I'm here to watch you break 'Cause its hard growing up on camp crystal lake Because no one seems to notice That best friends disappear I hate to say I miss you But I'm much better off without you here I still don't trust all my friends I took the scenic route through a crowded street To see if strangers would remember me Call it a requiem or a reverie But we don't need synthetic sympathy And I'll spill your guts like the skeletons in my closet I'm the ghost but I'm the one that's haunted Who are you to judge me You'll still see me in your dreams As I drag your body across the ceiling You burned down all my things Your anger was redirected As I pull your body into bed with me You'll see me in your dreams And I'll see you on Elm Street You bring the worst out in me Misunderstood and misdirected I never left I reinvented I'd be stupid to give up on this dream You'd be stupid to give up on this dream

You watched me drown myself in oceans of red through the faded lens of colored glasses. I ignored the warning signs and the red flags. You know I paved the way. Although our success was only temporary. You know the script we made. Is molding to a comeback story. This is a motion against hypothetic. An active demonstration of the aesthetics of keeping your word. I'll stick to my guns. My hearts a loaded clip and I refuse to play the victim. I saw a ghost. That followed me from the train station back home. A stranger that you once knew well some years ago. It's funny how life changes. We can go from holding hands to barely recognizing faces. BUT CAN YOU REALLY BLAME US?! I'll give you something you won't forget. My minds a weapon so I'll pull the pin. So drown yourself in your own ignorance. This. Means. War. All things considered I'm broken and bitter. Where you're the result of the redundant listeners from exploited emotions and context cliches. I swear I'll move on through these shadows in caves I'm a mortician who's sick of digging my own grave.
