Twisted Image
by Kiera Lordens

If forever is gone, it's hard to say
Just when this day will end
If once we've departed
We end up back where we started
It's not so easy to comprehend

Has life become too predictable?
Has the future become too clear?
When there's a conformer
Behind every corner
The thrill of the chase has all disappeared

Now that I've seen the darker side of things
There's no turning back towards the light
Oh, I'll send a prayer and fight through each layer
Of your weak fašade, I now see was a fraud

I know it will take many years
To cross this forsaken bridge
Now that I've been smitten
Let it be written:
I'll leave you with this twisted image

There is no separating truth from the lies
I've become adept at seeing through your disguise
So drive up and park it
I've cornered the market
I'm sure I have some vengeance in your size

There's nothing more to say to you
From this moment on we're through
I know you've deceived me
Now I am leaving
I'll walk away and begin anew

This twisted image
My only privilege
Is nothing sacred,
Safe from your hatred?

Has life just become too meaningless?
Does anyone even care?
Is it your occupation to cause decimation?
Is there no one that you will spare?

My world is an ocean of deceit
My life is a broken shell
I'll pick up each fractured piece I can capture
Before the waves drag them all down to hell

Now that my entire train of thought is tainted
There is no removing all the stains
Oh, I'll keep denying...maybe you weren't lying
But you better believe I'm not so na´ve

I never thought it'd be a cinch
I know things are sometimes tough
Let it be my privilege
To give you this image
I know when I'm beaten
I've had enough

There is no separating truth from the lies
I've become adept at seeing through your disguise
So drive up and park it
I've cornered the market
I'm sure I have some vengeance in your size

So let it take me centuries
To cross this forgotten bridge
Now that I am beaten
I'll be retreatin'
I'll leave you with this twisted image

This twisted image
My only privilege
This twisted image
Now I am finished
