Is fighting my defroster

My sighs they ring victorious

And fog this tinted glass

And it's clouded

And so is my head

The hint of these new tears are sharp

I try to choke them back"

And hidden in the public eye

Such a stellar monument to loneliness

Laced with brilliant smiles and shining eyes

Perfect make-up, but you're barely scraping by

But you're barely scraping by"

But this new diet's liquid

And dulling to the senses

And it's crude but it will do"

Longer goodbyes

Embracing for forever

And falling in your eyes"

You will be back someday

And this awkward kiss that tells of other people's lips

Another goodnight kiss

Is robbed of all its passion

Your grip

Another time, is slack

It leaves me feeling empty"

But you're not alone, and you're not discreet

Make sure I know who's taking you home"

"This is where I say I've had enough

No one should ever feel the way that I feel now

A walking open wound

A trophy display of bruises

And I don't believe that I'm getting any better

Any better"
