Just a sacrifice

Wishes are for fairy tales
And dreams are for kids
The prayers aren’t working
So I’m gonna close the lid

And lock it up
‘Cause I just don’t care anymore
It’s simply coming and going
Like the waves on the shore

I’ll finish this off
Write my name at the end
Paste it on the email
Hover over send

Do I really want to send this?
Is it worth the time?
Or should I save it name-less
And just call it mine?

I don’t know how this’ll go down
Should I keep my lip locked?
Can I hide my life away
In a little black box?

Now the key’s in your hands
To open the gates of hell
You’re stood alone in nothingness
Facing your farewell

When it comes to the end
You’ll understand life’s price
You’ll realise all this time
You were just a sacrifice
