Favorite Quote:
Just another casualty.
It's sad but true.
And even dead I'm still ahead
of most of you.

You were the one
The best one
We knew we could do it
That we could fly past everyone
We understood
The facts from the fiction
It would be our mission to win
To soar past the strays
Into our own place
That could shelter our wounds
We understood
That it would be rough
But that we were strong, we were tough

But you threw it all away
Your head stuck in your gaming
You know you cant blame this on me
You'll see
This wasn't a game we were playing
No dragons for slaying
You knew this wasn't for fun
For all that we've been through
We could have soared past everyone
But you're just a baby
Now no one can save me
I swear I'll fly past everyone

Take your words
Your half assed opinions
Of life and it's meanings
You just want to have fun
So why dont you go find someone
Who thinks that life is a game
You'd be one in the same
Oh, anyone

Just watch me
Watch me fly past you
You cant win
I know what to do
Watch me fly
I will pull on your heart
As I'm flying through the sky
I dare you to catch me
I dare you to try

I watched you throw it all away
Your head stuck in your gaming
My heart for the slaying
You turned and you walked away
And left me in pain.
Until today, when I saw
That our two sets of wings
Were too different to dance in this sky
Then I turned on us too
And now you know why
