This is the new single from Hollow Lives

lyrics

VERSE 1
I am well aware that my life's only just begun
And I know that I'm oh so very young
But the funny thing is this, that I long to not exist
Rather just be severed now, then maybe you'll weep
I do hope the flowers laid upon my grave will be pretty
Prettier than I ever was or ever could have been

Ever so pretty, prettier than me

VERSE 2
A memory is cleaner than the real thing
Maybe in hindsight you'll justify my sin
A crowd clad in black will always make excuses
My actions explained by exaggerated abuses
A funeral will erase all of my errors
My photograph devoid of all mortal terrors
A coffin will contain all of my filth
Only my shy smile remains above ground

VERSE 3
"Think of those you'll leave behind"
That is why I must do this
"Things will get better"
Only in your memories
Decisions I find hard
Luckily this isn't a choice
Yes it's spiteful
But I was never righteous

BREAKDOWN
Spite, envy, dread and life is why I must do this but In my confusion, I have second thoughts
I want to save you all, but also to destroy you
In this beautiful haze, nothing is clear
I somehow find it romantic; pathetic, despicable, cowardly!
If only I had known then what I know now

OUTRO
Even if you weeped I wouldn't be there to see it...
