as bridges burn lyrics – despised icon

looking through a stained window, i wish for better days
yesterday’s promise of brighter colors has been tarnished
by shades of deception
the calendar has been stripped of all its pages
my watch no longer tells time
its rusted gears silently watched the months p*ss by
happiness is a fallacy
what was taken for granted now seems so precious
i look back and remember when a smile was as priceless as the sun
on ne récolte pas toujours ce que l’on sème
my path slowly ends as bridges burn
hardship follows my footsteps
i try to walk a straight line
the blood of a martyr runs through my veins
desperate thoughts cloud my conscience
hope is a withered flower that never dies
a p*ssage into forlorn
the blood of a martyr runs through my veins
yesterday’s promise of brighter colors has been tarnished
by shades of deception
struggle to pick up the scattered pieces
evanescent hands caress my neck to suffocate the pride
that’s left inside
calmness only brings back memories
suffocate
i try to sleep and forget what you have ruined
