another stop before you start again
I'd be lying if I said I mind it
but then again I never thought
time has broken down
throw my head into the ground tonight
that will keep reminding me
that I'm nowhere close to you

and then it burns, burns, burns
set this world ablaze tonight
the fire of your denial
makes me even stronger
and my soul it takes a turn at once
all of my desire wrapped up in you

feels so good to pretend it's real
but your love was not mine to feel
is it best to live with never knowing
or face the truth and feel your death
the scene is set for both of these
called to action i simply freeze
i'd rather wrap myself up in a dream
than let reality wash over me
