a face in place with paint is hazy
just as mother nature made me
as one layer rises
another falls to meet its pace, yeah
blank stare, blank slate
but what am I supposed to do?
close your eyes
how am I supposed to feel?
you'll be fine
and though I'm haunted by the things that I could not provide
it's less about the love and more about pride
and though I'm bothered by the things that I cannot undo
I fall apart sometimes, no consequence to you
dig a cavern, build a tunnel
bath in loose earth amongst the rubble
as one layer crumbles
another falls to meet its fate
break the stare, break the slate
but what am I supposed to say?
just walk away
but what am I supposed to leave behind?
and though it's not about love
I fall apart
