lyrics

I don’t have the energy to be angry anymore.
I’m measuring the distance between me and the world.
It’s the only evidence I was ever here at all.
I’ve never been a ghost, but I never felt alive.
It takes everything I have,
But this is where we draw the line.

I will be the great wave.
The uncaring ocean, sent to destroy.
I’ll be the winter at its darkest,
It’s better than feeling worthless.

To make our sorrows more bearable,
I give up trying to find the balance anymore.
I find myself lacking. I find myself asking if...
This is the price we pay, for the curse of wondering why.

And as the light begins to fade, and it becomes too much to take.
I’m feeding all the fires that burn me to the ground.
There is an art to self destruction,
And I don’t want to start again.

There are the things you wish for,
And the things you get.
I just want the truth.
Are the better days behind me?
I want to know the way.
Show me the way.

To make my sorrows more bearable.
I give up trying to find the balance anymore.
I find myself lacking. I find myself asking if...
This is the price we pay, for the curse of wondering why.

This is the price we pay for the curse of wondering why.
The curse of wondering why.
