Artifex Pereo – Laugh & The World Laughs With You lyrics
She dwells in a hell she had built for herself to ensure her safety
With sight to foretell evil men for their deeds where she had seen this muse
It was born of lies that she hid behind her eyes
A wish and a prayer won't transport you there, just step outside
She flew from comfort and routine, four walls fell around the dream
Though feet aren't prepared, resolve was declared
The door's open
We must forgive the crime of never knowing why a plan changes if we step beyond the line
The chance that passes by, has lived a thousand lives
Offered, though it's rarely seen
Put down the burdens of haunting pasts. Earn the marvels that most won't have
She walks with cool composure, masking her panicked state of mind
She's sick to death with worry, so she tells herself, "I'm gonna die"
Pupils adjust to sunlight, and lungs remember how to breathe
So she pulls herself together and sets her sights to cross the street
A child brushes her ankle, and she's thankful that she's not alone
Feet reach to touch the pavement
How can they know what's to become?
The sound of rubber burning, the bite of headlights blinding eyes
No fear haunts her decision
She pushed the child to the side
Safety is found bleeding on the ground, the gift of altered perspective
As the bedlam broke upon the crippled pavement where she lay
The eyes of a child fixed to hers and she smiled at the choice she'd made
Perhaps years spent in fearfulness, had helped save more than herself
Though fate can deceive, we hold to beliefs that we know best
