Ready to cast myself far away from these perfect tragedies that we keep on making. Shipwrecked and alone, yet feeling so home. A perfect reject, I was never meant for this. Yet no matter what I do to push you away, you stand here next me to me. You love the bondage, you never want to be free. Cruelty and pain is how it works, and in the shadow I will lurk. I'm gonna let my ashes flutter into the wind, fly into a sea of despair... will you join me, lost in this swirling sea of reality, gone and forever no more?

Lyrics Cast myself far away From these perfect tragedies That we keep on making Shipwrecked and alone Perfect reject I was never meant for this Sample the source Then tear myself away Look through my withered disguise, Looked past my deceptive eyes, Heard all of the things you knew were lies. No matter what I do, You stand here next me to me You love the bondage You never want to be free A fist I clench a little to tight, A word leads to another fight, I heard the pleas But you won’t make it end Cruelty and pain is how it works, In the shadow lurks, I'm gonna let my ashes flutter into the wind, Fly into a sea of despair. Lost in this swirling sea of reality, Gone and forever no more We pass those who lost their humanity, Lost in their own world of fantasy.
