We live our lives with marble eyes
You chewed up my tongue and sent it out to the flies
So ordinary with telling those lies
You refused to be honest, how I despise.
I tried to entertain your clueless mind
Raising expectations only to find
We reached levels that could never be attained
These things grow old in the kingdom of hate.

I get the impression that you thought you couldn’t leave
I noticed the moment you ran out onto the streets
We were nothing more and nothing stored amongst the memories that we achieved
For months and months you were too proud to ever taste defeat
Just so you know, this was all just your dream
Your sick and twisted interpretations were never meant to be

Something tells me you were disconnected with reality
Something feels and tastes wrong
Don’t you understand where you belong?

It’s saddening to think that you didn’t know me
It's maddening to think that you didn’t even know yourself

Come to me, my false belief
You were nothing but a memory inside of me
Come to me, my sadist grief
We were so close yet farther apart than you could see

At the end of the day I am proud to say
That you meant absolutely nothing to me

You should’ve asked for help
You need to live and learn.
But you take so much comfort in leaving yourself out to burn

You burn alive all day and every night
I wish that you could just open your mind

Come to me, my false belief
You were so empty, a suspended entry
I never pictured you to make such a mess of me
Inside of my hopes and dreams

At the end of the day, I am proud to say
That you meant absolutely nothing to me.

I’m sure that it’s much too late to capture a saving grace
