I bare the curse of a broken man.
Holding fragments of my past in my hands.
Can't piece the back together, can't find my way out of this hell.
You abandoned the honest hearts we once carried.
Setting fire to everything we created.
I let myself get lost in your wildfires.
And I watched you change.
I watched you waste away.
Whenever I fall, I look for your hand to pick me up.
Keep me safe and sound
As time went on I watched you change, watched you waste away.
I watched you fucking waste away.
Let the corruption keep you.
I hold these fragments in my hands.
They're stopping me from being a better man.
The person you used to be, isn't behind those worn out eyes.
You gave into change, let you waste away.
I watched you waste a fucking way.
