Move Forward - Nothing's Left to Save Us

2013 Westcoast Worldwide Records



Wit's End

The winding road has split in two
The pretty scenery turned into dust
All the beauty of steel
Just a memory
All these buildings turned into rust
I reached the end of my map
Found nothing of my own
So I just turned back
Nowhere to call my home

I can't decide what's worse
Being afraid to fail
Or just cutting my losses
Save everyone the grief
I'll save myself the heartache of another attempt
Just a bitter complaint and I'll be out of your way
I won't have these dreams at the cost of your pity
So I'll run away
We'll just blame it on pride

Such a likely excuse
What more did you expect?
I expect to lose
Its just something I'm used to
Tell me what if I said
"I'll never leave again"
Now tell me what if I said
"I'll stay close just for you"
So when I turn my back
You won't see my face
Just a consequence of letting myself down
I'm finally learning to cope with what it really means
To give my heart to someone
Not just keep it for me

This is how I want to be remembered
I wouldn't ever change a thing
You see there's something about being proud and determined
The only thing that's great about me
I know you always said there was so much more
You always had a way with words
But it's too late to change
I won't try anyway
Let's just pretend that we're better off
I won't venture what it's not worth to gain
I guess the juice wasn't worth the squeeze
All alone
So afraid
Looking back it was the fear
Of failing that scares me the most

Sometimes I scare myself with all I can't help but think
Going down that road I bring myself to the brink
I see the smile on your face
Just before the crash
As the glass breaks through
I think of what's to come

So at my eulogy
Tell my mother not to cry
Her son lived a good life
Died how he wanted to die
With a lifetime of pictures
That I wished I had saved
Let this be the last photo that you see of me

A failure
A triumph
A gasp and a scream
This was everything that I needed it to be
as I look back down on that winding road
I won't wonder if I went the wrong way

I came home after living a dream
Everything wasn't quite as it seemed
I was brought back to life
From the end of my rope
In spite of everything
I'd rather fail than hope
