Pang

"This song was inspired by the character Bree from Desperate Housewives. =P"

I once had thought you had it all.
The rainbow suspends.
But there at the end
the fool’s gold falsely shimmers in your deadening eyes.

You’ve etched a smile upon your face
and swallowed the pain.
The scars still remain
hidden and layered over truths revealing only lies.

CHORUS:
You’re just used to pretending.
But is it worth all the pang it brings?
With happiness seeping from your veins.
You’re so afraid you don’t recognize
you’ve had the chance before you all this time.
All you got to do is try.

It’s like a fire is lit beneath
your feet and your skin
boils from within.
How can you withstand the fear that’s burning you alive.

But on the surface you still seem
so calm and contained.
You can’t maintain this veil.
It’ll soon burst into flames.

[repeat CHORUS]

You’ve worked so hard to hypnotize
yourself to believe
that you should live this way.
Do you really believe it?
Don’t believe it.

[repeat CHORUS] x2
