FADE

The rain comes through the windows

To these fake lives we've made

The water runs into our souls

And the colors start to fade

I go for a walk out on my own

To get past the barricade

Of emptiness and ignorance

And my anger starts to fade

But as old demons are fading out

New ones are fading in

The water washes away my doubt

But the fear comes back again

Chorus

Wounds fade to scars

Fake smiles fade to tears

Let's stick it out. This all will fade

In just a few long years

But even though the bruises fade

The injuries remain

Some things I wish I could forget

Will never fade away

The snow drifts pile high outside

These crumbling lies we've made

The biting cold, it makes us numb

And our pain starts to fade

I take a walk through the deep blue night

Where the wind cuts like a blade

Blood runs down and stains the snow

And my patience starts to fade

'cause I've been waiting long enough

For someone to save the day

To take all of this pain and anger

And make it fade away

Chorus

Wounds fade to scars

Fake smiles fade to tears

Let's stick it out. This all will fade

In just a few long years

But even though the bruises fade

The injuries remain

Some things I wish I could forget

Will never fade away

I have to get out of here

Or else I'll lose mind

I'll ride off into the sunset, and let it all fade

Into the dust I leave behind….
