The Anchor – Through Rose

Lyrics:
You promised me the world
Filled my mind with hope and empty dreams
You promised to protect me
But I now realize..
I’m better off without you

I’m better off without you

You took advantage of my innocence and optimism
A child looking through rose
Wanting nothing more than harmony in a
Broken world

I looked up to you. Your confidence hid your intents so well
An empty reflection that gave me a false sense of comfort

I don’t have the words to say
But I hope that one day
You will see what you did to me
And all the pain you’ve made

You fooled me into thinking I was your reason why
I craved your presence. Hung onto every word and lie
That skipped across your lips
Your shallow decadence
Skewing the reality of my consciousness

You made me believe I couldn’t do this without you
That you were the missing piece to my life

You made me think you could fix all the damage done and love me all the same
Covered my eyes from the truth to hide who was really left to blame

I don’t have the words to say
But I hope that one day
You will see what you did to me
And the pain you made
I just wanted you to know that I put my faith in you
I wanted to believe, but you threw it all away

I see what I am to you
A pawn in a game only you knew
Living to be the hero in the light
Striving as the menace while I sleep at night
Digging your fangs deeper in my heart
Convincing me, while you play the part
You’re the remedy to wounds left by you
Grinning at all that you’ve put me through

I’m better off without you

I don’t have the words to say
But I hope that one day
You will see what you did to me
And the pain you made
I just wanted you to know that I put my faith in you
I wanted to believe, but you threw it all away
