about

This song is about angst and anguish.

lyrics

i've been broken i've been fixed
just tryna make some sense of this
i've seen the world on fire in my eyes tonight
shadow of the apocalypse
see these hands all worn down
i tell you girl well they've been around
they've felt the bitter winter of a tragic year
they look like broken porcelain now

and i swear it's not as fine as it may seem
cause it feels like i'm living in a bad dream

don't look back on the shame that dishonors your family's name
hide your tears hide your cries hide your pain
don't give up on the fight on the war the save your life
up in arms with just a voice that cuts like a knife

ash to ash dust to dust
my body's aching from all this rust
gotta shake these cobwebs off my heart
gotta learn to love and trust
girl i tell you, you're a star
don't let em tell you who you are
you've got a world on fire at your fingertips
i know you're going to go so far

and i swear it's not as fine as it may seem
cause it feels like i'm living in a bad dream

don't look back on the shame that dishonors your family's name
hide your tears hide your cries hide your pain
don't give up on the fight on the war the save your life
up in arms with just a voice that cuts like a knife

you gotta learn to let it go
learn to let it go
learn to let it go

na nauh na na nana na na
na nauh na na na
na nauh na na nauh na na
nana na nana na nauh na
na nauh na na nana na na
na nauh na na na
na nauh na na nauh na na
nana na nana na nauh na

don't look back on the shame that dishonors your family's name
hide your tears hide your cries hide your pain
don't give up on the fight on the war the save your life
up in arms with just a voice that cuts like a knife
