Let This Be My Excuse

I chased away a prophecy
'cause there's a side of me
Subscribes to thrive in apathy,
In this blasphemy,
Redeemed the seams inside of me
Breaking from the fair weather to fulfill my capacity

When my love for anything is a mirage of joy with petty jokes and laughing
I wanted to be the next prophet, but once I got sick I started chasing prophets
Performing for an audience and plotting this artifice of sacrifice
Rolling dice to silence the mistress kissing the lips of a nihilist

Every secret I've ever had is back on a discount rack
For sale to a consumer that doesn't know any better
I can't love anything that doesn't look like me, but doesn't love like you
And I learned to love Jesus before I learned to love me

Is there anything more pathetic, than packaging honesty as entertainment?
Knowing none of us know what love truly means
it's easier to say "I love you too" than to point blank say "I love you"
It's nothing but a broken melody and yet again another sorry

Salt the wound so I won't forget,
that every moment,
I'm not with you is a moment in regret
Every echo needs a voice and every echo has a choice
But I didn't choose, so let this be my big excuse

Hindering the petty weeks, writing and fighting the silence
The past doesn't change because the future tells it not to
So...
