lyrics

Here dreams come to die.
You are one with the emptiness that's stuck in their eyes.
You couldn't see from so high,
How we were running in circles while time kept passing by.

It all looked so bright.
Strike a match in the darkness just to see the light.
But what will happen when the matches end?
Maybe I'm far to gone to understand,
Let's just play pretend

Let's feed the sickness and keep our heads down.

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie but I keep wasting away.

I can't justify anything I've done but I'm not trying to hide.
I've been caught dead to rights,
Light the last of my matches as I try to ignite.

Burn, burn this sickness I will never look down,
Let me stand in my own way as I let my problems drown.

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So Don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie but I keep wasting away.

From all the drops in the water to the smoke in my conscience,
I've been dosing on happiness to shut myself off
I need to shut myself off.

I'm not here but I don't think I'll ever wanna be.
Did we lose our minds or did we just lose grip on reality?

Don't waste your time on me,
I'm staring death in the eye and I can't feel a thing.
So don't waste your time on me,
Tired of living a lie so I'm starting to break away.
