this is not emo

Greyest Sky

Lying here on a bed stone
So cold and so alone
Dig into my back
Fragments of a life that I had known

So far away but I still can hear you breathing
The haunting of your weary voice
Do you plan on leaving?

Cause you’re silhouetted by the shadows up against the greyest sky
In a wave of doubt in this sea of regret I call my mind

(Chorus)
Alone I wander on
With a burnt back from the mocking sun
Staring straight into the light
Until it burns away my eyes
And helps me see as soon as I’m blind
(Chorus)

Waiting for your guiding hand
But I know you’re far away
And you don’t understand

My vanity has drained me away again
Sever ties that bind me to a reputation
Of self-inflicted isolation

Cause you’re silhouetted by the shadows up against the greyest sky
In a wave of doubt in this sea of regret I call my mind

(Chorus X2)

Helps me see as soon as I’m blind

(Bass break)

Up against a landscape of nothing but distance
On my bed of stone

The high-pitched laughter of the wind
Throwing fault just at me again

And the sun

The sun watches my sorrow

Makes the grey sky into light

Brightens up the fading twilight

But it isn’t to help me

No it isn’t to help me

It’s to spite me
The mocking light shines on me
Only me
Humiliate me in front of this dead
Inanimate landscape

…For some reason it hurts more than you’d think

(Solo)

(Chorus)

(Bridge)
A tragedy for only me
I watch in silent agony
Upon a stage
Barely made
No one is there, but I watch my world painted on the grey sky
(Bridge)

(Solo)

(Bridge)

I close my eyes
Not to die
But to reflect on this mirage of a life

(Chorus [No Music])

(Outro)
