Deny the truth - It’s easier to pretend When intricacies come complexing within… Filter out your words and Conceal the truth: It is what we eventually learn to do best.
Now that the years have passed; Sing a song Because those melodic lies Are what the others are Wanting to hear.
Because no one wants to be around A damned fool Who wears the faded smile Upside down Or even speaks of it - Because no one really cares About who died and who is dying anymore: So superficial and impersonal, Why are our hearts so invisible?
Only reaching out When the days are bright, Leaving when its not; It’s a pattern observed Over and over -
Sickened by the apathy - Only to leave what Amplifies your pain, and Cuts on your wounds even deeper, Leaving one more scar that never heals, This time even deeper - You add one more layer to the Barricades that surround your heart.
As time ticks and tocks, And puts one more Onto the cake, We blow away Our emotions As we blow out One more candle Of youth and innocence.
Call this the epiphany of maturity: To be abandoned To become accepted… We all learn to wear Layers of armories Around our hearts - No longer soft and warm Now, merely a hardened black coal That trusts none to avoid getting hurt and rather, Be fake to all.
This is the Absurdity within These empty gaps We hold between The silences we hold Beneath our breaths as It slowly kills us on the inside.
As you bury Your emotions Deeper and deeper under the ground, They eventually suffocate and die, and You finally lose yourself beyond repair, That you lose the key to your own heart.
