Ashes Of Tomorrow

I can destroy what I create
If I really, and truly wanted to
I can light these feelings ablaze
If I didn't want anymore support from you

I barely stop myself time and time again
I realize there's a sense of cruelty in all of us
It's just that feeling, everything might be in vain
When tempted at breaking down those barriers of trust

To jeopardize all of the triumphs
I want to be the one who is blamed
The fire will reach the sky, and become my guidance
I want to be swallowed by my own inner, selfish flames

I sit behind the scenes of my friendships
Alone, with a fake smile on my face
That old feeling of loneliness is tempting
Cold, but the embers will soon burn me away

Ashes paint the sky / I'm the phoenix at fault
My flames roar as I cry / As all hope finally falls

I need to get back at myself
Delivering a fiery vengeance
I know that I don't deserve anyone else
As all of the bridges simultaneously start burning

I wanted to erase what I made
And I tried to really, and truly mean it
But I know that I'm not an advocate for hate
I just would rather hurt myself than have you involved in this

I remain remorseful over the feelings that I hid
Ashamed, while my loved ones still continued to help
I know that my actions will be hard to forgive
Relieved, because my isolation has failed

I couldn't put out the fires that I lit, once it had begun
I will try my hardest to make my wrong's right
I believe a better tomorrow will come
Out from the ashes, we shall rise

"A true friend will never give up, even when you think that you're not good enough."
