It's War

Luckily there is no ending to keep the worlds pretending
Who is left descending to the shadows of my mind
So while the thoughts are pending, open sending broken headings
Treading water, upsetting slaughter, I caught her letting go a sign
Fine, she scares me, down she wears me, I can't trust her, let me go
Why, she says, she's happy now, how? She's selfish well, I'm left behind
Back into a world of attitude and gratitude of going home
No, I can't betray myself, let me know when it is time

She falls through the cracks I drew the paintings true in black
And white a fact tonight to light the fire I can try
So upsetting, all forgetting letting go with all my tactics,
That's it regretting, light is shedding, tears of sorrow years go by
She gets older life gets colder, I'm a solder with no fight
War is only seconds further, is it worth it just to die
Killed in battle, will I shatter? Scatter me across the light
For when the sun goes down you'll see the sound of the distant cries

Please ignore the explosions blowing throwing me across the line
You must go to save yourself and know that it is time to go
Screaming moving on and dreaming nightmares we must leave behind
All in time to show the answer shifted by the undertow
Pull me in I'm losing conscience all I have is gravity
Following a trace of ancient listening to all I know
Nothing's left to show the best of anything I have to be
Gently moving only proving life is lonely, this is soul
