Beacon in the Dark

lyrics

We fought so hard for a concept that's lost
A battle that cost so much more than we thought, but not a
Single one of us raised a flag, we forgot
To ask ourselves to just stop, and assess what we got, and now
Empty-handed we stare up at the sun
A new day has begun, but we lost all the fun
Of imagining a world full of magic and hope
We no longer can cope without a show that provoked
A movement that turned this harsh world around
And built up a crowd that swore to uphold the values of friendship and peace
But now without it just falls to pieces

Our memories fade away, lessons lost to better days
And as the stars each flicker out, it seems our hearts have filled with doubt
How did we all divide? You used to stand here by my side
How could we still just fall apart when hope's a beacon in the dark?

So take the brother who stood by your side
Whose songs made you cry
Who taught us to try and be the
Best versions of ourselves, live or die, and just
Turn a blind eye and tell him goodbye because you
Can't stand to be around someone who thinks differently
He can't be the god you want him to be
He's only a man who has flaws
Not a pony whose thoughts only include cupcakes and plots. It's flawed
You think you don't have secrets inside?
Take a look at mirror and try real hard to divide what you see
Versus what is hidden inside and tell me you're flawless
It's not even worth it to try

Our memories fade away, lessons lost to better days
And as the stars each flicker out, it seems our hearts have filled with doubt
How did we all divide? You used to stand here by my side
How could we still just fall apart when hope's a beacon in the dark?

So think about what you've lost when the music has stopped
And you look at someone without these preconceptions you've got and see
They're not so different from you and me
They don't gotta be like the fantasy in your head
This friendship is dead
And not because you scream and shout
Until the whole world knows who you are and what you're all about
But because you love your voice so much it blinds you from the truth
The only person you're fighting is you

Cuz I'm done.
