lyrics

I'm having trouble remembering.
As if I had a choice
Between my past and my future.
They told me the world was ending,
But never said when nor how
And all I wonder is "why"?

I've been here long enough to know
Everything is temporary.
For myself all I can show
Are empty houses and no homes.
I'm floating through my subconscious
Trying to make the ends meet.
They're burning at both ends
And slowly taking from me,
My sanity, all known truths.
Exchanging fears reflection.
Painting slow strokes in black paint
Across a face I never guess was mine
So I'll try to ignore it.
I'll just wait for it to fade
It always does like you and me

Our mistakes become routine
Routines become who we are
I'm having trouble remembering
I had a dream I fell asleep
But I couldn't hold on

But is reality slipping
Or finding me again
The hunted and haunted are me
Can't help but fall down again
Sleeping is pointless without dreams
But is reality slipping
Or finding me again
I don't know

They told me heaven's descending
I said well that explains the weight on my shoulders

Our mistakes become routine
Routines become who we are
I'm having trouble remembering
I had a dream I fell asleep
But I couldn't hold on

I'm having trouble remembering.
As if I had a choice
Between my past and my future.
They told me the world was ending,
But never said when nor how
And all I wonder is "why"?
And now I still have no answers
They've been here long enough
To know they're aren't happy endings
They told me heavens descending
But I looked up at the sky
And thought well I have to try.
