No Longer Naive

Love is fleeting

It's a occupation

On which time takes it's toll

If both members do not work equally


So, where is love now

Broken man on broken feelings

Shattered dreams and fractured hope


“Ignorance is bliss.”

Because with wisdom comes understanding

With understanding comes pain


I'm barely left a ghost in this house

Gutted, soulless, but still existing

Existing, that's exactly the word

With nothing to live for

Without reasons to plan



For all our joy and happiness

I find, they tend to evanesce


Shadows give depth to our souls

Our sins shape our personality

But you've got a tell-tale heart

And it's told me all I need to know


It's told me goodbye
