Verisimilitude

lyrics

Believe, deceive, release

Cast adrift on lonely shores,
Nothing seems real anymore.
Look within, what am I for?
I break the skin, I hit the floor.

I was born just so I'd die,
Don't you want to know why?
Just be strong, boys don't cry.
Strung along, pain divides.

Close your eyes, I'll hang my head,
Leave the words left unsaid,
Pretend I look ahead,
Force a smile, hide the dread.

Nothing more than wistful ambience,
Nothing more than life in transience.

Believe, deceive, release.

Something fragile in my mind,
Isolated by design.
Tell the world that I am fine,
I ache within, I am resigned.

I'm awake, but I'm not here,
Wait for life to appear.
I'll be strong, feel no fear.
Won't be long, hide the tears.

Close my mouth, ignore my brain.
Rest in silence, abstain.
Crack a joke, hide the pain.
Keeps me safe, keeps me chained.

Nothing more than wistful ambience,
Nothing more than life in transience.

Believe, deceive, release.
