Devastation

I wanted to write a pretty song for you
But in the end devastation came through
I wanted to believe in this mirage of you
Holding on to no matter how untrue
Reality is nothings changed
And everything is still the same

Living an illusion
Alleviates the pain
And facing the truth
Requires strength
Beware for denial
Is a dangerous game

Its written out upon your skin
Can't tell between foe or friend
You've gotten sick within your head
And devastation only spreads...

Remember to act apathetically
Cause no one here's allowed to see

Living an illusion
Alleviates the pain
And facing the truth
Requires strength
Beware for denial
Is a dangerous game

In the end nothing changed and devastation stays the same
It stays the same
