Final Step

I act strong even though I’m not

False confidence can only take me so far

I conjure all the will I’ve got

I’m the black hole that once used to be a star


Everyone is looking up to me

It’s not easy to fail someone beside yourself

But maybe this is the most I could be

Can’t you hear the ringing of the bells?


I’ve shed sweat, blood and tears

I sacrificed all that I could sacrifice

I’m satisfied that I’ve made it here

But I can see the faith in your eyes


Don’t burden me with your expectations

My shoulder is too weak

I can no longer tolerate this misidentification

I can hear the words you don’t speak


I will take this final step

Even if it will lead to my inevitable demise

It’s the poison I’ll happily sip

For the sake of that foolish sense of pride
