about

So I keep thinking in reverse
And I don’t see anything remotely similar happening
This valley, this distance, disloyalty
It’s no doubt that the fallout is staying

This barren land I know firsthand is shaking
Falling apart, you found a heart worth breaking

Now we can pretend that this rift happened naturally
But we both know better than to just believe
Keep climbing; each rung is a step you leave
Just more proof, selfish truth is showing

This barren land I know firsthand is shaking
Falling apart, you found a heart worth breaking

A picture that you drew
Showed a different side of you
Now I know the truth
And when all is said and done
I welcome light from the morning sun
To shine on you
Show the world what you’ve become

This barren land I know firsthand is shaking
Falling apart, you found a heart worth breaking
