ALONE

 

Falling down a rabbit hole 

Shedding tears in intervals  

Just to drown out the moonlight  

 

Sympathy in minor keys 

Fresh bleach and misery 

Shadow boxes of what you used to have 

 

Oh, if you could see what I see 

What you desperately need 

But you believe what you want 

 

CHORUS: 

You don’t even want my help 

You can do it by yourself 

But I’m still here watching you breakdown 

Wanna do it on your own 

But I know you know 

It’s a dead end long and winding road 

There’s no better off in better off alone 

 

Pillar of society 

Hide behind what’s underneath 

And don’t expose the picture-perfect lies 

 

Be the man I thought you were 

I know the truth is gonna hurt 

There’s no other way around it now 

 

CHORUS 

 

Oh, if you could see what I see 

What you so desperately need 

But you believe what you want 

 

CHORUS
