Superficial, Incoherent

Personalities are ugly
The way you've lived this entire time,
The things you've said...
And all you've sacrificed...

What have you ever done for anybody?

The way you've learned to not get hurt
Seems to hurt more, in the end
Like all pain...
People make the same mistakes...
They always have and they always will;
It's so predictable

I have to know, you've never felt this way before...

Again?
Since?

Shallow, inconsistent
Heartbeats.
As the drawing thunder near...

Smoke from ashes
Divide.
Come full circle back into the flames

Like a friend who only sees you when you cry...
Love is lonely
When it's one and only...
You will say what you truly mean.

Love is for people that actually have something to offer...

Well... you don't have anything.

Personalities are ugly
Underneath.
