Leaping Over GravestonesMature

It’s been another long night

Staying up with you.

I’m burdened with your confidence

To hold on to your truths.

But I watch you waste away

Right before my eyes.

 

Someone’s gotta make a change,

Sorry if I break.

No man of sense would stay

See you fade away.

I’d give you help but you

Have to let me,

Have to let go.

 

Do you deny this is wrong?

So you say you do.

Do you think you can live this way?

So you say you do.

Do you think I will stand by?

So you think I will.

When I walk away,

Where will you be then?

 

I know I am only one,

One man can’t do much.

Tell a friend, give confidence,

You shy away.

I bear witness

To your fatal mistakes.

 

Living bottling it up,

Won’t end easy.

One day that bottle breaks

And let it all spill out.

I tell you stop,

But you gotta stay

Living this way.

 

Do you deny this is wrong?

So you say you do.

Do you think you can live this way?

So you say you do.

Do you think I will stand by?

So you think I will.

When I walk away,

Where will you be then?

 

When

Will you

Raise the white flag.

Will

This be

The end finally?

 

Is life

Mean to be

Leaping over gravestones.

Only

To fall

Down in the ditch.

 

Well I am done spectating,

My hate is devastating.

I tried to care,

This relationship isn’t fair.

I can’t waste anymore,

Got nothing in store.

Will you live another day

Without falling away?

 

This ditch of my own creation,

Brought from imagination.

Reality brought me down,

Dead, about to drown.

This gravestone will bear my name,

The letters tell of my fame.

Bury me in haste I pray,

Leave me dead today.

Leave me dead today.

Leave me dead today.

 

Endless nights of mine

Until the end of time.

All that’s left for me,

Left in your wake.

I delete your name

And I won’t listen.

 

Light through the window,

Small and very faint.

Out there in the distance,

Just to make a show.

As soon as it comes,

It fades away.

It fades clean away.

 

When

Will you

Raise the white flag.

Will

This be

The end finally?

 

Is life

Mean to be

Leaping over gravestones.

Only

To fall

Down in the ditch.

 

Leaping over gravestones,

To fall down in the ditch.

Cleaning my record,

By ending this awful habit.

 

Do you deny this is wrong?

So you say you do.

Do you think you can live this way?

So you say you do.

Do you think I will stand by?

So you think I will.

When I walk away,

Where will you be then?

 

By now, my only

Problem is you.

I won’t go easy,

I’ll walk away.

Walk away.

And leave you behind.

The End
