I am weak

I kind of wanna scream

I took a nap and now I can't sleep

I have no one else to blame for that

And many other things, except myself

 

I thought I was getting better

At being me

But it's been 5 or 6 years

And no time has passed

 

I tried looking Truth in the face

And proving it wrong

To change the sky from blue to green

But no matter what I do

No matter what I do

The sky will always stay the same

 

It may want to change it's color

It may paint itself

Red or pink or yellow

But eventually is thins out

And reality will bleed through

 

To show the world

The sky was always blue

The sky was always blue

 

What should I do now?

I always believed I could to anything

I set my mind to

I thought I did for a while

 

But the paint is starting to flake away

I'm just not that person

The person I thought I could be

The person I thought I was already

 

What am I complaining for?

I need to stop my whining and winging

I have everything, I'm spoiled silly

But it feels good, it feels good

 

I tried looking Truth in the face

And proving it wrong

To change the sky from blue to green

But no matter what I do

No matter what I do

The sky will always stay the same, always stay the same

 

It may want to change it's color

It may paint itself

Red or pink or yellow

But eventually it thins

And reality will bleed through

 

To show the world

The sky was always blue

The sky was always blue
