Regrets infesting before the final choice is made
A look-back taken the wrong way, as resolution fades
Can’t catch a break when I’m running with fractured legs
So I sit in the sheer silence of my own fucking mess
I want to take back something that hasn’t even been done
Exchange clear rationality just for the sake of jumping the gun
When the count’s already over and the ticking clock has won
It leaves only myself wondering until I’m left with none.
and i’d watch the whole world
fall down at your grave
just to feel you breathe again
they say this selfishness
is merely built up of compromised lies
wringing my skin dry of scars
but i’ll dismantle my entire being
and carve notches of your name in my soul
just so you could fill in
the gaps between my bones.
we ran into each other
you swerved to avoid
but what if i wanted us
to collide like an asteroid?
then maybe we can fill up
the gaps our words had left
but neither wanted an answer
and the void stayed right there.
