lyrics

Unfathomable strange paradox
Wanting to live in the lies of darkness
The cruel and double-edged sun unlocks
To a naked eye, all that's flawed, all that's flawless
Truth is a thing we are bound to search for
While reality is sometimes too much to afford
I should have foreseen the outcome
That loving but a myth that spawned from
A mirage in my desperate and sore heart
As distant as an illusion
From the start, it has torn me apart
Pushed my soul further into seclusion

Sick of loving you, craving for you, I'm
Sick of waiting and wishing for something
That seems destined to never happen
Sick of dying every morning
Sick of these chains, this heart prison

Sick of living in hopes of tomorrows
For you and me, hiding in the shadows
Sick of self-destructing forever
Sick of being light years away from her

Every dreadful morning, everyday
I collapse under an unbearable pain
That draws in when the stars all fade away
The sun reminds me of how far you are, and in the rain
I can finally hide the tears on my face
Seems like I've retained them for too long
Feels like I was born in the wrong place
Feels like here isn't where I belong

They try to take you away from me
And I am so confused
About reality, they say that I refuse
To admit that you're a lie, am I crazy?
Are you real
Or my imagination?
I reach to hold you into empty space
Only to wake up in this lonely place
Somehow, I don't wanna heal
Don't want no medication
Are you real
Or my imagination?
Tell me why I feel
So much pain and desolation
You soothe and crush my every bone
I hate to say it but leave me alone
You soothe and crush my every bone
I hate to say it but leave me alone

Sick of falling in ruin for something
That is destined to never happen
Sick of dying every morning
Sick of these chains, this heart prison

Sick of losing all hopes of tomorrows
For you and me, fading in the shadows
Sick of self-destructing forever
Sick of being light years away from her

Every dreadful morning, everyday
I collapsed under this unbearable pain
That draws in when the stars all fade away
The sun reminds me of how far you are, and in the rain
I can finally hide the tears on my face
Seems like I've retained them for too long
Feels like I was born in the wrong place
I know that here isn't where I belong
