I Can't Tell You

I can't tell you
how it feels
to live in a world
that isn't real
to die in truth,
but live in a lie
to love to live
but be forced to die

Engineered
in a space above
built with hate
and no room to love

My reality is lost
it's sad, I can't say
you'll never know
there's just no way
it's special, it's different
my perspective in motion
my world is flipped
without future notion

I can't tell you
if this is real
I really don't know
if I'll ever heal.
