A fairytale of a mother and a father
Loving their son and their daughter
Like puzzle pieces that form the big picture
Beautiful ingredients to a recipe's mixture

But somewhere along the way
(Maybe it was all along)
We drifted apart, broken they say
The set-up of our pieces was dreadfully wrong

We weren't set up in the wrong order
There was no stability, no control of the border
We were just pieces to different puzzles
That were trapped in binding muzzles

Laughing with tender happiness in every breath
Something addictive like a cocaine meth
And simply leaning on each other's strengths
To put our weaknesses against the ranks

That's the fairytale
Reality when the universe turns parallel
There's so much more to this story
And it all ends rough, tragic, and gory

Shattered hearts all over the floor
Bleeding memories, painfully sore
Anger and dread shadow them all
Waiting and hoping for the damned to fall

Fire into the hearts of man
Or fire into the soul of mine
Because that's how it felt
When you took my heart through hell

Kissed us goodbye to greet a new hello
To a family of five was really low
But here I am and you don't know
That it hurt so bad to hear you say hello

A fairytale of a mother and a father
Loving their son and their daughter
Like puzzle pieces that form the big picture
Beautiful ingredients to a recipe's mixture

Fairytales are poison
