Distraughtful Thoughts:

Seek truth in life, find exception in living
promises breaking, mindless forgiving
wasting the day, erasing the night
living in vain, is a waste of a life
dying from the sun, lying under moon
divided oneself, decided by you
this is the misery, this is the sound
blame it on gravity, for bringing us down

*PRE-CHORUS*
descending like rain, grieving from the loss
pretending no pain, numb from the frost
frost of my heart, my cold heart abyss
defrost it with love, refill my emptyness

*CHORUS*
impacts have left behind a mess
pieces been lost im left with less
free the pain with each passing breath
moments passed brings you closer to death

disguises and clowns, lives of this town
flying so high, when the sky's falling down
declining not gaining, i tried explaining
drained-stained-rearranged, don't know what i'm saying
the well has gone dry, no tears left to cry
my thoughts plagued by lies, to tired to try
this is simplicity, between smiles and frowns
blame it on oxygen, for letting you drown

*PRE-CHORUS*
so god damn tired, tired of the earth
burned by the fire, scarred by the curse
curse of desire, desire for you
become lost and thoughtless, injured and bruised

*CHORUS*
impacts have left behind a mess
pieces been lost im left with less
free the pain with each passing breath
moments passed brings you closer to death

traces of life, faces of death
hold on for life, but don't hold your breath
negativity from stressin', destruction with blessin
text book of lifes lessons, no answers try guessin'
can't help remembering, wont lose the memories
can't stop from thinking, endlessly wondering
these thoughts and feelings, are put into words
you'll never know it all, just what you've heard

*PRE-CHORUS(NOT FOLLOWED BY CHORUS)*
thoughts of the times that've passed, knew they would never last
thinking of times that i've missed, sick of missing the past
feeling inside so blue, blinded by misery
tired of missing you, i'm tired of missing me

i've tried forgetting, was hard to let you go
continued regretting, just thought i'd let you know
diverted my care, false map that i've drawn
wishing to be there, wishing you weren't gone
intrusion of dreams, delusions, awaken
puzzle piece nightmares, picture keeps breaking
these are the words, of the past that i've felt
can't change your luck, just accept what your dealt

rekindled confusion, can't deal with not knowing
truth from illusion, my insides are showing
the damage has been done, the heart has been broken
inevitable begun, just at the wrong moment

*CHORUS*
impacts have left behind a mess
pieces been lost im left with less
free the pain with each passing breath
moments passed brings you closer to death

STILL a work in progress chorus is probably going to change. Opinions, thoughts, comments on the song would be nice to hear. Thanks for viewing.

P.S. have written riffs for it might post a rough version soon (cant decide if it should be done acoustic or electric, fast/slow, effects to use -if any- etc.)
"yeah, well, you know...


that's just like... your opinion man."
