The Aftermath

Here I am, the wreckage in my room
Pounding out black, red, and blues
All through my beautiful lies
All through the tears I cried
Worked so hard to say it
Lost my prayers and now my payment
Is complete, and I can only say
Two words- The aftermath

She said goodbye like this, you know
He'd held on to that wish, but oh
Their sorry kisses
Imaginary bliss is
Complementary, and
Written in the sand
In a little broken heart, it says
Two words- The aftermath

Apocalypse decoded
Through your imaginary eye
Tell me what it's like, now, sugar
To tell a perfect lie
I said that I would love you
If it even cost my life
And here are these fears I have
To abandon and to derealize
Myself, can be put into
Just two words- The aftermath

I told you what I thought I felt
What I felt at the time
I'd hold you close for yesterday
But babe, another time
Cos now I'm wrapped in roses
And the thorns are digging in
Peircing and decieving
Bleeding out my sin
And now I see you in a different light
With the right to hate me
Baby, this is
The aftermath

Apocalypse decoded
Through your imaginary eye
Tell me what it's like, now, sugar
To tell a perfect lie
I said that I would love you
If it even cost my life
And these fears I have
To abandon and to derealize
Myself, can be put into
Just two words- The aftermath
