In the course of this series of unfortunate events
I found myself begging for a swift strike of mercy
But in the course of this series of unfortunate events
I found the true reason why I decided to hurt me

Because I'm not happy where I'm at
And you're never happy where I'll go
So the two intertwine and blot out my shine
Cuz I know without you I would glow

You said I have potential
You say it's all because of me
You say I have potential
But I have different energy
You're the one who has potential
But you're the one who's gonna falter
When you get in over your head
From worshipping yourself
You'll be lying dead at your own altar

In the wake of this series of unfortunate happenings
I found myself parching for a sip of that ichor
But in the wake of this series of unfortunate happenings
Anything I'd try to ease my pain would only make me sicker

Because I'm still realing from the blow
It swung through right where you sat
On the steps up to your pedestal
It finally came all the way back

And I know you had potential
To be what you wanted me to be
I know you had potential
But you wound up with something free
Of all that you had tried to capture
I'm someone no one can falter
I'll worship whomever I please
While you lay sacrificed at your own altar

Never turned the other way to someone elses pain
So why is it justified to turn the tables then?
When I listen to aching stories there is nothing to be gained
So why do they feel entitled to reject what's been projected onto them?

I thought I was a good solution
Thought I could be of use
I guess I'm just another void of hope

And it's not that I tried to do what couldn't be done
It's just that I tried to be who I couldn't be
It's not that people in trouble are liable to run
It's that they run after they've been set free

Never came up to someone weaker and started a fight
So why do they fight me, even though I will win
When I listen to desperation it seems there is no light
So why do they turn to other figures to absolve them of their sin

I thought I was a good man
Thought I could break their cycle
I guess I'm just another bump in the road

And it's not that I knew I would fail, it's not that I decided to lie
It's just that I wanted to ease my own pain
It's not that people in trouble don't care about themselves
It's that they see no reason to try
They don't see something to gain

//

Can it wait just an hour? 
Or a moment or two?
Why does everything we don't need become something we do?
I can't stand to keep seeing red
When you're feeling so blue
I guess everything I don't want is projected onto you

And that's how I know it's over

Because if you're sober
And you still feel like you can't form new thoughts
Then maybe it's time to step out of the box
Cut a hole in the top
And pull yourself through
It's not just what you thought
It's what you must do

Can we go somewhere else
For one ****** night
Why does everything we don't ponder over 
Become something over which we fight?
I can't stand to keep saying you're wrong
When we know neither's right
I guess everything we tried to illuminate lost its source of light

And that's how I know I'm ready

Because if you're steady
And you still feel like you don't have support
Then maybe it's time to find a different rapport
Leave the scene of the drama
Walk into the night
It's not who you were meant for
And there's always new light

//

I was having a temptation over a man I could've kissed
I could have really gotten to know him if I had just approached him
But I was a coward as is normal
I was empowered to be formal
And so by the time he'd moved on I'd just learned what I could've and did miss

And the next day after I found that out
I went to bawl my eyes into a pulp 
For just looking at a man
Knowing that he can
And knowing that he won't
So I just take a breath and gulp

Swallow my fizzing feelings
Even though they burn all the way down
Frothing at the source and scouring along their course
I'm once again among the lonely men here in this town

I was planning for the anticipation of a swinging party 
Right in my front yard
But no one wanted to come because they could have a much better time at the bar
I was a fool once more, as is normal
Just a tool to score points to be formal
And so by the time they'd were counting their winnings I hadn't even picked up a card

And the next day after I resigned once more
I went to tear down the happy facade
For just trying to be kind
Knowing it could be fine
And knowing that it won't
So I curse and swear to God

And chug down my burning emotions
Even though they scathe the entire length...I haven't finished this one

Mona Lisa (2014)

Seems like no one understood your pain
Seems like no one saw you were in pain
It's like your voice has been taken away
Just dry your tears and close your eyes
Everything will be better and you'll smile
Don't trust those liars, don't listen to their lies
They just wanna see you failing, they want you to cry

Chorus :
All the pain that you felt, all the tears you dropped
All the things you've endured because of them
They wanted to slay you so you'd never rise again
They had to leave you alone, they should've stopped
Don't give up fighting for you and your family
I'll never let you down Mona Lisa, trust me

Remember that we're all here cause we love you
Your family and all of us will always support you
You're our original doll, we wanna see you happy
You did your Rebellion, you were a karate kid
Don't give up fighting them, please hold on tight
Everything will be okay, you'll see the light

So happy that now everything is fine
From now, the sun will always shine
It feels so great to see you smiling
Feels so good to see you winning
Just keep fighting for your family
Keep fighting against your enemies
We'll never stop supporting you
Because Mona Lisa, we love you

@WeatherBOI your lyrics are hot, I love them.

@DonoDotto Waiting for you to share your lyrics. And even @JordanMiller & @PokemonSpears

I never thought I'd find you here
Or anyone, truth be told
I was always taught the stars were something to aim for
Not something I'd get to hold
I never dreamed I'd get to hold
Onto hope from something greater than a wish on fleeting light
For the light slammed into me and turned me to dust
And collided back together, ameteorite

I never thought I'd see the retrograde
Or any shift in how I perceive time
But now everything goes quickly
For our space in intertwined

We are binary bodies
Celestial spheres
We sing and we dance
Sounds that fall on no ears
But we don't need sound to know we're not far apart
We have coordination in our pulsating hearts
We're a constellation, ordering light in the dark

I never thought I'd see clouds up here
Multicolored mists
Flying through eon after eon
Of creation in our midst

We are orbiting partners
Interstellar decisions
In the sea of something so much bigger
Than what we can ever envision
But we don't need comparisons to know that we were set from the start
We don't need visualization to know that we've made our mark
Through our creation, our constellation guides the lost through the dark
