Was talking to my old and current self.

lyrics

I’ve been trying to kill you for years
And yet you rear your ugly head
How about you disappear
I think that you’re better off dead
I won’t shed any tears
When I finally put you to bed
Created from my fear
All you ever left me was debt

All you ever gave me were threats
That you would destroy my soul
Cast into a pit instead
The stress was taking a toll
My face was constantly wet
Vision hard to control
From living with you I bet
Demise was your only goal

My heart was hollow, not whole
Iniquity ate it out
Abysmal described the hole
That I would wander about
Like I was lost on patrol
I stumbled and tried to shout
For help to find me you stole
My chances to clear this doubt

My spirit dry from the drought
Give me a proverb not fable
There’s no point in chasing clout
Pride don’t put food on the table
But blood curses threw out
The same when Cain killed Able
I’m trying to make him proud
But I don’t think I am able ‘cause

When it’s all said and done
At the end of the day is a setting sun
Night comes and the twilight’s overrun
By haunting shadows
So retrospect all you want
Can’t change the past, but can you confront
These ghastly memories that front
In front of you as shadows

Can any of you relate
When you lie in bed and pray
For sleep to come and take
Your consciousness away
‘Cause if it didn’t then
You knew your mind would break
And if it didn’t then
You’d sit there and await

For the day to come quickly
When the light shown down as a gift from above
For a moment you felt the presence of love
But when it left it left you sickly

And once the corks out of the bottle
It never quite seals up again
No mettle just mottled
Your iron will was made of tin
So gun it full throttle
Toss self-restraint into the bin
And how can you remodel
A castle brought down low through sin

I don’t think that you comprehend
Though you say that you aspire
To be better in the end
Your soul is consumed with fire
It’s carnal, a worldly blend
Of anger, hate, and desire
In a man with no friends
Who’s relationships were retired

And honestly I’m so tired
Of dealing with all these people
Though when I choose to inquire
My heart I’m no less evil
This body’s 'bout to expire
Afterwards comes the sequel
The situation is dire
The scales treat everyone equal

When it’s all said and done
At the end of the day is a setting sun
Night comes and the twilight’s overrun
By haunting shadows
So retrospect all you want
Can’t change the past, but can you confront
These ghastly memories that front
In front of you as shadows
As shadows
As shadows

At the end of the day
I guess it’s nothing but excuses
As I sit lost in the way
With this bomb that never diffuses
And I’m too afraid pray
The definition of what refuse is
Or petition for some aid
I fear what comes if he refuses

If you know better though
Then live like it, will you
Quit giving into the lust,
Worldly wealth will never fill you
That path only leads to death
It can never truly heal you
A broad mind has room to walk
It’s also the road that kills you

When it’s all said and done
At the end of the day is a setting sun
Night comes and the Twilight’s overrun
By haunting shadows
