lyrics

There was a time when I was all you
Now you stare at me from within the eyes of a child
Does not yet know fear, thus far innocent, still wild
He looks up at me smiling, yearning to swap shoes
And here I conclude: he and I alike

I've since shed my skin once more and more
Each time the new skin is much thicker than before
My hair dark and thick now
The bright locks of before have shrivelled into retention
That split of a moment where ignorance drove euphoria
Was it not once a sunny eternity?
Now only fragments of an everlasting aporia

In retrospect
Nothing has changed, nothing alike, things will never again be the same
Worth seems to lessen as every year goes by
A smile never used to cost nearly as much

They prance around me in the footsteps
I once followed and later set to fade
One gazes at me in a familiar way
Oh I remember all so well
"You might be bigger, you might be older,
But you sure don't understand

It was then when it hit me
A part of me is dead
All but the remainder of memories in my head

I've since shed my skin once more and more
Each time the new skin is thicker than before
My hair dark and thick now
The bright locks of before have shrivelled into retention
That split of a moment, where ignorance drove euphoria
Was it not once a sunny eternity?
Now only fragments of an everlasting aporia
The martyr that grew into me
Still struggles to feed my mentality

I've reenacted all of those memories again
To the highest degree of accuracy I could comprehend
I've sat on that curb, wind in my face
I've opened that present for which so long I'd wait
I've returned to that beach and played in the sand
I've eaten that ice cream, let it melt down my hand

I have seen all these feelings before
They'll never return to find me anymore

Two figures meet at last with so much to say
Could this be?
Have we gone this far?
You and I have passed the point of no return
And from now I must continue on my own.

We have seen all these feelings before
Yet they'll never return to find us anymore

I'll still shed my skin once more and more
My newly thick skin is just what I've asked for
My hair dark and thick now
And now it seems that it is too late for regression
That split of a moment where ignorance drove euphoria
I let my precious sunny eternity fade away into an everlasting aporia
The martyr that grew into me
Will never cease to feed my mentality

And now I see, and wish you'd stay with me
For that which happened I am grateful
I will never see you again
Not like this
I have overstayed my welcome in the world of the unknowingly bliss
