lyrics

There's no relief in this, though I hear the end was brief
And Mercy found her way, into your bed
Now the sheets lay bare, but I still imagine them warm
Adjusting takes it's time

See I was raised to believe, that all heroes' could fly
And the best of them were indestructible
So imagine my surprise to wake up to a world
Who's premise was a lie

And now, I've come to accept that I'm just gonna do this on my own
So I'll hold up my head, and I'll swallow my tears, but I buried my innocence, in the ground with you

I've only myself to blame, for believing in man
And fallible flesh
But it feels so good, to pretend you're not alone
Adjusting takes it's time

And now, I've come to accept that I'm just gonna do this on my own
So I'll hold up my head, and swallow my tears, but I buried my innocence, in the ground with you.

And it doesn't feel better to say, "he's in a better place" when all the words that I never said are still bitter on my tongue
And no it doesn't, no it doesn't make me wanna pray
When all the words that I'll never say are still rotting in my mouth

So now, I've come to accept that I'm just gonna do this on my own
So I'll hold up my head, and I'll swallow my tears but I buried my innocence in the ground with you.
