Turning Off

from Drowning by Before Dawn

/

lyrics

I might like the torture
of uncertainty
anticipating something
turning up nothing

you left me high and dry before
I liked it better when we both left sore
protect my heart from disillusion
a process callous evolution

I sold myself ambivalence
the cost was my own innocence

I’m drowning in pretense
surrounded by walls
I’m sitting on fences
afraid to fall

I have become numb to pain
trying to keep myself sane
do you think that its all real
or is this my part of the deal

Is there someone else to blame
are you feeling just the same?

I’m drowning in pretense
surrounded by walls
I’m sitting on fences
afraid to fall
