Close my eyes and then I'm flying
If I were younger I'd say I'm dying
But somehow wishing death on my mind
Is a solution I can no longer find
When my eyes fly open, I see everything
My world is empty yet somehow moving
Fire burns me down, storms wake me up
The hurricanes toss me, push me up
Floods are the only way I can breathe
Safe underwater, where lies can be seen
But just as I'm happy I feel it calling
The endless guilt, always haunting
I'm dragged through destruction back to the city
I promised I'd fight but it's hauntingly pretty
All I feel I'm entitled to do
Stop you from hiding from the truth.

Something's not right, the walls are melting
The shadows, growing
The sky is burning
Rainbow spraypaint, I'll leave you a warning
It won't help much, but everything's ending
For the first time I realise how much you're hurting
That's when I know that my best isn't working

Close my eyes and say I'm flying
If I were younger I'd tell you I'm dying
I'll never let myself become so weak
Even now, when I can barely speak
I can try and be a hero, but I cannot save you
I can tell you to leave but I cannot make you
The lightning can't heal the broken heart cracks
Your weakness, your antidote
Electric black

Safe in a sunset far away
I stand on a roof, bow my head, pray
You are the hero of your own lost night
And now it's you that has to fight
Tears wet the rooftop, I'm scared for you
But this is the bitter thing I have to do.

Tears pale the sunset, I'll fight for you
But only when you've done what you have to do.
This was from about a week ago now... still don't know where any of this comes from. Maybe it's all the pringles I eat...
