Hidden Train Wreck

Speak with honest potential,
I might listen for awhile,
But in the end all that is left,
Will be a face without a smile.

I’ve never fit a perfect mold,
I’ve always fallen out of shape,
Your time’s run out and I’ve become,
Another unfamiliar face.

I’m a train wreck wrapped in pretty words,
I’m everything you’ll never need,
I’m a head on collision for the world to see,
My life is the book you’ll never read.
I live for the words,
You never had the guts to say,
The one’s that filter,
And get lost in the haze.

The sun still follows darkness,
I’ve always envied its beauty,
You can’t hide behind broken glass,
Won’t you stop looking back at me?

Close your empty eyes,
Please go back in time,
To the moment you never saw me,
And to the hours I never shined.

I’m a train wreck wrapped in pretty words,
I’m everything you’ll never need,
I’m a head on collision for the world to see,
My life is the book you’ll never read.
I live for the words,
You never had the guts to say,
The one’s that filter,
And get lost in the haze.

I’m still everything you never think of,
Still the shadow on the moon,
A harsh ocean that looks so peaceful,
The words always spoken to soon.
I’d rather be covered from head to toe,
In the thoughts you never dreamed,
Than be portrayed as someone else,
Too plastic to even gleam.

I’m a train wreck wrapped in pretty words,
I’m everything you’ll never need,
I’m a head on collision for the world to see,
My life is the book you’ll never read.
I live for the words,
You never had the guts to say,
The one’s that filter,
And get lost in the haze.

Artist's Description

This one basically represents not living up to other people’s expectations and just being the person you want to be.
There’s actual music written for this, but until my band gets famous (yeah right!), it’ll remain unheard.
