we’re all laughing at you

I’ll watch you fall to your death 

I’ll try not to smile 

Bite my lips for a while

 

I’m too young to take myself out 

You’ll never succeed 

Tied down like a tree 

 

Boiling water poured upon your roots

No more room for growth

You’re hitting a new low 

 

I don’t have time to ask if you’re okay 

My head is above the waves

My future is this path I pave

 

 

The older we get the clearer we see

You were never the one for me

Two broken souls completely lost at sea

You grabbed onto me 

Made me weak

Made me bleed

 

But now I see

I’m better than can be

With your spirits underneath my feet
