lyrics

everything your parents said was right
but you were young and naïve and you didn't believe
and now you're struggling to sleep at night

if anything happened you said you'd be alright
but now you're doubled over in stress
as you scramble to change your return flight

it's adorable how you think that you've got it all figured out
while any naysaying memory is slowly lowered into the ground

-

but please don't take it too personally
i'm just doing what i think would be best for my sanity

and if that means this then i won't resist
if that means this then i won't resist, i promise

please just forget about me
maybe it'll be better for the both of us once i'm entirely flushed from your memories

and if that means me just set me free
if that means me just let me be

-

and you'll look up to the sky and scream
you were right

-

my conscious is killing me again
burnt bridges and severed ends
so i take it back to a time when
i could trust my friends

and i lose myself in
the thought of making amends
fables of remorse and forgiveness
and a filling of the holes they left

but reality gets to me
and i fall back asleep
cause i can't stand to see
the world as it's meant to be

when reality gets to me
i fall back asleep
cause the only place i feel safe now
is somewhere deep inside my psyche

-

and you'll look up to the sky and scream
you were right
