Mirage

I sit on the edge of the magic bridge

Overlooking all of the carnage

Your innocence is my tourniquet

And I am still a masochist

When will this all be over?

We'll never be together

Why does the fire illuminate our future sorrow?

I see a reflection down below

Outline of a girl I hardly know

I throw a rock right at her face

Let the water take her place

When will this all be over?

We'll never be together

Why does the water saturate the dawn with sarcasm?

I feel the sun beating down on me

A scarlet dose of reality

Your shade not enough to save my skin

The burn a scar from my wicked sin

When will this all be over

We'll never be together

Why does the scar seem worth what will become of us in the end?
