Track Name: heartwrencher
When everybody grabs for your heart
you better keep it locked. it doesn’t
get any better, it will never be good.
My body is a ruin and my ethics a river run
dry. i am a bird locked inside this cage with
my wings tied behind my back.
i gotta break free, i gotta break free from
Driving nine inch nails thru the heart of every
nice girl*, so i must learn to let go. i was a vampire
at your door bleeding from a wooden stake in my
chest cus we all have been hurt before.
(so) this kingdom shall fall apart (as) i must break
this reign of bitterness.
When everybody grabbed for my heart i used to keep it
locked (but) i want to be the one to hold you when the skies are on fire and when you cry yourself to sleep at night. it finally has to get better (and) i need it so bad to be good. I need it to get better (cus) i can’t be out of love forever.
Track Name: the rest of your life
Sometimes it’s so hard to realize that one day you will stop breathing and your heart will stop beating.
the memories may fade. but they make us who we are.
If this is the first day of the rest of your life, what you’re gonna do with it? i might not make a change but at least i fucking tried. so what the fuck are you going to do with it? forget about those tearful nights and pointless fights
cus nothing will last forever. bruised hearts and postcards
of places we’ve never been to, they make us who we are.
All hail the new desperation, it won’t take you anywhere.
If this is the first day of the rest of your life, what you’re gonna do with it? i might not make a change but at least i fucking tried. so what the fuck are you going to do with it? Dance as if no one was watching. love as if you haven’t been hurt before. sing as if no one can hear you. and live your life as if heaven did really exist.
there’s a new sun rising and it will make you feel less alone, cus one day it will all make sense to you.
one day it will all make sense to you.
