lyrics

Pretension had distorted the way I saw myself those days. Look back on the things I've done with disgust, such brazen acts of depravity. At the time all I could feel was the high, unwavering.

As my fingers touched the sky I knew anything was possible. Don't delay, don't be afraid to give it all. Lost myself amongst the stars and eventually I fell back down. So ashamed, so dismayed at what I had wrought.

I could curse any number of gods with a final breath, but I simply seek forgiveness so that I may rest. Now the time has come for me to own up to my shortcomings. Now the time arrives for me to face the end of my story.

It's true what they say of hindsight. I can look back at all of the times I felt I was on the correct path only to find that all the roads end at the same destination. It's true what they say of bliss and ignorance. The cruelest thing life will teach us is that the wisdom we thought we had was just premature foolishness. Time shows such bitter reflections of what we've come to regret.

As my fingers touched the sky I knew anything was possible. Lost myself amongst the stars.
