It's what I need to stop pretending that it takes away the guilt
To set me free from how I think inside this prison that you built

But my mistake was thinking you're to blame
And what a shame that you feel the same way

Let's not forget that you're not innocent
Because you strayed away when you couldn't commit

An eye for an eye is anybody's escape
Because we're both the same
But you'll never change
If this is all I'm left with
Then I'll let the sun set in it's place
Because I've lost the drive, to keep this alive
Let's go our separate ways

Will we learn, and then in turn will we begin to let this go?
Or will we burn, and lose what nerve it takes to keep our world afloat?

Let's not forget that we cannot repent
Because I strayed as well so let's lay this to rest

An eye for an eye is anybody's escape
Because we're both the same
But you'll never change
If this is all I'm left with
Then I'll let the sun set in it's place
Because I've lost the drive, to keep this alive
Let's go our separate ways

You'll never know how different this could be without dishonesty
