I never thought I'd get so lost in my mind

These thoughts I have
They keep me buried
Bury me in a hole
And I feel like we're not the way we used to be

Crushed by the weight of this life
We're destroyed by what creates us
This failure hangs heavy like a crown of thorns
I can't hold on

So we've forgotten to hold on
Stay stronger, burn brighter, live today and fuck the future
To what we left in the dust
Stay stronger, burn brighter, live today and fuck the future
So take me back to the world I left behind
To the way we were
Everything happens for a reason
Well these reasons are all my own

Maybe I've come undone
Or maybe I'm just giving up
I will rise, I will fight
Leave you beaten, broken
Left in the dirt

Think I'll lay here (with the sun)
With the sun on me

These thoughts I have
They keep me buried
Bury me in a hole
And I feel like we're not the way we used to be
Yeah

What do you do when this all feels pointless?
I know (I know)
The sun hides behind a sleeping moon
And I know, I know
My hope will return

So stare into the eyes of your reflection
And live your life
Do you feel like you've missed out on everything?
You're lost and hungry
For a taste of something you can never reach
You'll never reach

I need to feel happiness
I need to feel happiness
I need to feel like the way we were

I need to feel happiness
I need to feel happiness
I need to feel like the way we once were

Memories won't last forever
But I'll hold this in my heart (x2)
