You’ll see the smiles fade before they ever touch your eyes
You’ll see the earth surround long before you touch the skies
You’ll see the endless plummet coming long before the rise
Are you surprised to realize I speak a truth that you despise?
You’ll see the people leaving long before they have arrived
You’ll see the cycle failing far more often than revived
You’ll see the offer given as a promise you’re deprived
Are you surprised to realize it’s more contrived than you’d derive?
You’ll see the ashes drift before you ever feel the fire
You’ll often find a Judas in the ones you so admire
You’ll see the truth is nothing but the perfume of a liar
Are you not tired of the mire of the days as they expire?
You’ll see the wonder fail before you ever wonder why
You’ll see the pain destroying long before you get to try
You’ll feel the chains and locks before you’ll ever hope to fly
So close your eyes and hold your lies when so say I, there’s no goodbyes
