Obsolete and orphaned
Quite obviously tamed
By the let down of the daylight
The false promise it made

There’s no conciliation
Neon synastry a guise
So sit back and enjoy
The soundtrack to our pure demise

Would you rather live a fiction
Counterfeit and fake?
Plastic faces won't redeem
The meaning they erase
Bleeding out ink to put on a page
Create emotion we won’t attain.

We are so connected
By this distance in between
Ourselves and our portrayals
Of who we think we want to be

Isn't it so lovely
Lovelessly in denial
Cardboard cut out corpses
Rot beneath vanilla skies

If only I could capture
This ocean in between
A self prescribed depression
And a pseudo suffered apathy
Torturing our sorrow
Torturing ourselves
Paint a pretty portrait
And live like you're not someone else

Stage fright from the daylight
Of your mediocre life
Don’t stop to think of your life’s worth
When worthless is your life.
