broken house of cards

Published January 28, 2011 by crystalights

i’m singing this one like a broken piece of glass

from broken arms and broken noses in the back

is this the new year

or just another desperation

you’re pushing ’til you’re shoving

you bend until you break

’til you stand on the broken fields where our fathers lay

it’ll be a day like this one when the world caves in

when the world caves in

when the world caves in

i think i’ve said everything that i needed to say, in one way or another,

so much that even an imbecile would have understood what i have said all this time.

so i have nothing left in me that i want to pour out to you anymore.

.

i won’t be here forever

and you know that

but what the heck

you were looking for another short version of forever on a foreign land

.

so i’ll just step back into my place

where there isn’t anybody else to hurt me

because there isn’t anybody else

there.

(but me).
