Sinking Ships


I know I’ve reached
the end of my trail
I choose to lose
and I choose to fail
Life is a game
that I’ll never win
Some sailors just
don’t know how to swim

Telling myself
what this is about
Checking myself
for last-minute doubt
I have secrets
to take to the grave
Some sinking ships
can never be saved

Incandescent (original)


Memories melting on my wall
Illusions begging for attention
Here in my veins they long to crawl
To feed my broken soul’s addiction

Self-righteous truth claiming to be
The antidote to my poison
Taunting my imagination
And walking on the shattered mirrors
That reflect the only light
Here inside my mind tonight

The world sinks its teeth in my skin
Reality scratches on my door
When the ruthless night closes in
The child in me bleeds on the cold floor

Self-righteous truth claiming to be
The antidote to my poison
Taunting my imagination
And walking on the shattered mirrors
That reflect the only light
Here inside my mind tonight

Web


Yellow candles shedding viscous tears
Shedding off my adolescent fears
Making the shadows of my fingers
Dance against these desolate corners

Little lights tickling my eyes
Reminding me of effervescent years
Making me romanticize
That stars are still within my reach like tears

Stuck in a moment, lost in a daydream
Outside, things are never what they seem
Caught in a web of thoughts on the ceiling
Trapped in a fantasy worth living

A Girl Like Me


You think you know me better
Much better than I do
You think that you are perfect
That I should be like you
Go walk a mile in my shoes
Walk a mile down the street
A girl like me cannot choose
The troubles that I meet

Wasn’t my fault
God made a mistake
But by default
I’m the one to take
All the blame
And all the stares
Life is cruel
It is unfair

To a girl like me
