How heavy is the shadow you cast 

Burning pages of riddles past 

We never feel like we've grown 

Until we see our reflection in the world we know


I am desprate to know when the end is near

I just want to end all that prophesied fear

There's no point telling you what you don't want to hear

You can't believe me 

Well working up the courage to deny you isn't easy 


I am falling at the rate of melting wax 

I am clinging to something despreately pushing me away 

I know that the darkness is aprroaching me to stay
