On Shattered Hearts & Dreams: How Did We Get Here?

How did we get here? 

What happened to us?  

I feel you even though we're apart….

and without you there is a hole in my heart..

Why did we let it go?

Tell me where it all went wrong… I really need know

How did we become one of those, 

Remember when beds were bigger than problems

And monsters stayed under it

So how did we get here, and begin to see the cracks

How did we so earnestly learn to lose the facts?

We became the darkness we once were scared of

We hugged pain to our chests

For our hearts were stronger,

The days were longer

And now we don't know best.

Where did the smaller books go – the ones with bigger morals?

The ones that said 'masks do come off'

No matter how hard your fingers hold.

And so we said – we will be ourselves!

We will make the world a better place

Then we got here

Forgot it all

Fallen flat

Our brains all clogged -'

See you remember,

And I forgot,

And together we let go of the truth;

But now the joke's on us

We built this world

Oh !!!! how do we escape?

We have no clue.

I wither up inside as all my hopes disappear,

And the burn in my heart really starts to sear,

I sink back in my bed and think of you,

And wonder if there's anything I can do,

I'm knocked back every time I try to get through,

Remember when beds were bigger than problems

And monsters stayed under it

So how did we get here, and begin to see the cracks

Tell me,what happened to us?
