In this world there is nothing but darkness
We are taught to understand that we will be alone forever
And nothing will change; in the end we know we will die forgotten
Alone together we suffer for what seems like nothing but is everything
From a young age we see the harm that love can do
We watch people die from broken hearts, hear about suicide and are denied its taste
So many rules, we struggle to be free, a thirst to break all the rules to fall in love
Ignoring the voice inside our head and follow our hearts
In the end we learn the hard way about falling in love
We learn we should have stayed in the dark because the lightness of the truth hurts
And in the end we just get burned
