A Wish To End The World

lyrics

We could all pretend that everything is perfect here
Would you rather live a lie or a life of fear?
Tell me what it’s like to look through vacant eyes
A one way mirror with nothing more behind.

And if I'm gonna go I think I’d rather know this time.

All my hopes are coming true
As I enjoy the view from this cliff.
Pray to your executioner
But you cannot be heard from behind this veil.

It’s safer to fail than try

I think I'd like to send a message to the optimist
It written in a truth that you can't comprehend.
It’s a disillusioned daydream with a death wish for a life.
The writings on the of the walls of the blind

This profit over people is enough to let me know.
I'm a number in the system, I'm a nameless faithless soul
Take my hand and stare with me into my crystal ball.
What's the point in rising up when you know you’re gonna fall?

And now as I disappear
Overshadowed by the fear of knowing the truth.
Flames caress this empty shell of a lifeless living hell to exit existence.
Holding the threads of life.
