Our Numb Tears

Something   deep   within   me / Is longing for relief
A   haunting   aura   around   me / Reminding me of the grief

Scratching at the core of my soul / Hope is swallowed by a black hole
Locked in the center of my heart / All that is left is the traumatized part

Laugh, smile, blink, and focus. You just need to act as normal as possible.
You cannot let this pain get the best of you. Don't do anything irresponsible.
The damage you do to yourself also effects everyone else, so don't let it become irreversible.
You're being too hard on yourself, no one is perfect in life, you're only human, you're not invincible!
Shock waves of guilt enter my system / While a deathly peace is in the distance
And aftershocks of regret strike me down / I can't show that I'm hurt when they're around

Tremors   of   anxiety / Infest my entire body
I'm   a   tragedy / Just flawed so perfectly


Bottled up rage / Bottled up love
Bottled up blame / Bottled up trust
Sometimes, in this life of ours, we have it the hardest; there is no easy path we can take.
Sometimes, in this pain of ours, we just have to pick ourselves up, and continue on our way.
Sometimes, in this soul of ours, we have to endure so much, but we will still live for another day.
Sometimes, in this broken heart of ours, we have to keep breathing for the sake of our own little faith!
Bottled up fear / Bottled up darkness
Bottled up tears / Bottled up damages

Something   deep   within   me / Is asking for forgiveness
An   enveloping   aura   surrounding   me / Leaving me painless

Accepting, and letting go of my past / I will wear the mistakes I have made
Standing up, and forgiving what has been done / Because our destinies are what we make

Breathe, settle, think, and relax, just calm down for a moment and realize that life goes on.
The clock keeps ticking even though you're standing still, while you're lost in this inner mourn.
Others have been through this, you're not alone, there are many who are suffering, not just one.
You need to keep on living, even with all of these set backs, this journey of yours is not yet done!
This is something that I've been needing / A frozen-firework sensation spreads across my face
A smile cures my broken-down expression / This guilt is no longer a part of me as it fades away

My   eyes   grow   cold / I can finally let go of my despair
My   pain   is   no   more / Washed away from our numb tears
Wake me up when this year ends
For I need a new beginning again

I like how it jarrs, sort of like an emotional breakdown (like the narrator is having form the sound of it).

Good work! :)
