no control lyrics – set it off

it’s like watching a rose just wither away
when beauty crumbles and decays
it’s like having a voice, with no chance to speak
it’s something that you hold, and hold to keep

fall to my knees, god i beg you please
show me just a little of mercy
help me! i’m doing all i can
pretend i’m unaffected, but their pain became my burden

swear this isn’t what i wanted
god, this house is haunted
the way that this could be, if things would remedy
and after all of this we’ve been through
i wish that we could switch shoes
this life ain’t fair for us all

my ears resound, with the sound of broken dreams
i had where you would breathe, exist eternally
tell them to leave
you’re coming home with me
remove that d*mn iv
i wish my words could cure illness

it’s like running a race with no legs or
swimming a lap with no arms
the door may have slammed in my face but
the windows will heal my scars

swear this isn’t what i wanted
god, this house is haunted
the way that this could be, if things would
and after all of this we’ve been through
i wish we could switch shoes
this life ain’t fair for us all

all my walls are built, and on display
i drown in guilt, due to dismay
maybe someday i can see how this has shaped me
bite my tongue, with swelling lungs
i gasp for air and let this go

swear this isn’t what i wanted
god, this house is haunted
the way that this could be, if things would
and after all this sh*t we’ve been through
i wish we could switch shoes
well this life ain’t fair for us all
