As the music drifted out over our heads,
you ran out in the field,
laid next to the fuse.
From the scoreboard I watched a flame light up your face, 
then I saw as that car circled back towards the field. 
And I felt my stomach tense, 
but the grin on my face was watching our next move. 
So I watched a spotlight up your body; 
and as you ran for your life,
and the fireworks lit up everything, 

we were immortal.

A genius, alone and afraid, grasping at the last straws. 

I let you go. I let you flounder, I let you reach; now I watch you drown. 
I watch you fade away. I watch you use your last few fleeting moments to create negativity instead of sustainability. 

Let you go. 

Tired old man, resign yourself. Hand in your pride, sign it in sobriety, and let your love flourish. Let your loved ones take your hand, let them show you a better world than this. Please trust in your family, give it up. We’ve been chasing you for some time now. 

I’ve watched you digress and drown since I could talk. 
You’d always been my hero, my idol, my steadfast failsafe. 
Time passes, now I’m older. I change, you stay the same. 
And despite your errors I know you were doing what you could. 

But you weren’t. 

You won’t know what this did to me. And I had I known I would have put a stop to this long before. 

Let your loved ones take your hand, let them show you a better world than this. Please trust in your family, give it up. We’ve been chasing you for some time. 

Let you go

But you weren’t. 

You won’t know what this did to me. And I had I known I would have put a stop to this long before. 

Let your loved ones take your hand, let them show you a better world than this. Please trust in your family, give it up. We’ve been chasing you for some time. 

Let you go.

I can’t believe that you would build me up with all this goddamn self confidence. 

Just to turn around and wet your lips for someone else. Then try to apologize for this fucking mess 

So wake me up when the storms subside, 

And the waves stop crashing over my head. 

Maybe I can breathe again. 

Jumped off this cliff just to spend time with you 

Thought you were the wind under my wax wings 

Found out too late you were the sun burning my back 

This salt water against my skin still stings. 

Can we pretend just for a moment that you’re the one drowning in this deep ocean? 

Maybe then I’ll learn to waste my time on someone else. Instead of spreading myself too thin 

So wake me up when the storms subside, 

And the waves stop crashing overhead 

I don’t think I’ll ever breathe again. 

Jumped off this cliff just to spend time with you 

Thought you were the wind under my wax wings 

Found out too late you were the sun burning my back 

This salt water against my skin still stings. 

So if you think this is worth it, then leave it to me 

And I’ll chew it all over again. 

And again. 

Cause you’ve fucked me over much worse than that night when you wouldn’t stay sober. 

(All signs of remorse that you left upstream got lost in the tides with my self-esteem)
