Era Of Silence

Cascading glares swim around my whole body
Searching for some kind of flaw that I might have
But they don't realize that my life is the problem entirely
I can hardly keep on hiding all of the imperfections I secretly grasp

Denial is simple / If you say so
Pretending is impossible / I can't let you know


So I no longer speak for myself
No,   not   anymore
I feel that I deserve this hell
My   pure   torture
-
I'm just too snared by the knives in my back
No one wanted to accept me for who I really was
That's why I had no choice but to put up this wounded act
But I guess that's what the feeling of losing everybody does

Guilt is truly consuming / If you succumb to it
Sympathy is harshly damaging / The infliction is endless


I always put myself last
But   first   to   feel   the   carnage
I let peace slip through my hands
I   hate   being   so   goddamn   selfless
-
I hold my head up high toward the sky
So the tears will eventually drip down into my chest
I refuse to allow the ones who did this see me break down and cry
But they always have their way, so I will give them my very last breath

Fear can be so controlling / I was not brave enough
Hope can be an illusion / I want to just give up


My friendships were so double-edged
But   I   didn't   want   to   be   alone
Abandonment can never be reversed
Because   the   damage   will   be   done
-
I've forgotten what my own voice sounds like
Because it's been so long now that I've done this
I don't know how much longer I can stand this kind of life
My real self must have died somewhere along this era of silence
