Suddenly I realize everything is right,
And there’s a reason but I doubt you’d understand.
I can’t explain it to someone so jaded,
I need a second chance.
You think that you’re trying, but the shit that you’re buying
Won’t fill that empty space,
So you fill it up with hate.
But I swore an oath that I would not let myself fall into this trap again.
And I won’t believe it’s real.
I won’t keep all these thoughts inside, you think you’ve read the guide,
But I know who I was before this, and I swore an oath.
It’s hard to know, with one last call, if this is the right one.
I will keep the hurt, the pain, and the fear inside;
It will be the dark without which there is no light.
So much beauty down here, and I can see it now,
See it because I’ve lived through this.
And I know that this is real.
All my life, I’ve known that this is real.
