discovering the truth about oz lyrics – averi

i try not to let these realizations by.
because with time they wipe the innocence from my eyes.
now the days are so much longer and the nights they seem so restless.
feelings come with clutter to weigh heavy on my chest.

i feel i might have almost slipped this skin.
i fear that it? s easier now for you to get in.

the innocence was swept out from under us.
perceptions change when they turn the lights on.
the years bring out the things i try to hide.

it gets harder to ignore the once invisible,
when truth comes, beside age and destroys what i thought was invincible.
i could never go back and start it all again.
there? s too much clutter here without the ignorance.

i feel i might have almost slipped this skin.
i fear that it? s easier now for you to get in.

the innocence was swept out from under us.
perceptions change when they turn the lights on.
the years bring out the things i try to hide.

i just wish it wasn? t such a slap in the face.
