Ashes Into The Fire

When we fail at something we worked so hard to succeed at, but it turned out we tried to run before we could walk

Breathing easy through the tears/

Because these failures do nothing/

To relieve me of my fears

 

Victory tastes so sweet/

But I learned everything in defeat/

And into the darkness I will retreat/

Shattered into pieces/this pain it never ceases/

The blood flow turns like ice/and freezes

 

Seeing the truth through the veil/

The world comes crashing down/

As it dawns on me that I’ve failed/

So many wrong steps

 

And suddenly I’m becoming frail/

The blood turns to ice in my veins/

And in one moment/

The world becomes blurry/

My skin’s becoming pale

 

Breathing easy through the tears/

Because these failures do nothing/

To relieve me of my fears

 

These walls crumble under the pressure/

My strength becomes ash in the fire/

Drained of everything/

I don’t even feel pain/

I can’t even remember how to fight

 

Breathing easy through the tears/

Because these failures do nothing/

To relieve me of my fears

 

The wind drowning out the cries of my voice/

Life has deprived me of any choice/

Everyone else’s burdens become my own/

My heart’s darkness is the place I call home

 

Venom brewing from the acidic bitterness/

Drowning the light inside of me/

Whispers stirring inside my head/

Bound by own misery I can never be free/

Chained by own failures/

Some days I’m better off dead 

The End
