Mayfly

lyrics

I can’t believe that you’re still standing,
How can you walk away from this?
With a smile on your face,
You will move onto the next best thing,
Like a mayfly your life will end,
As you make way for a new one,

I am glad I’m not a part of this,
You will tear down the ground you stand on,
Leaving behind in your wake,
A swarm of destruction,
Mayfly,
I know your end game,
Are you happy with what you’ve done?

Shed your skin,
Peel back the rotten façade,
You know in your heart,
This life just like the next one,
Disposable,
Carry with you,
A thousand lies,
A thousand lives lived,
Each one until death or boredom claims you,
Until your satisfied,
You’ve bled everyone dry,
Of what they can give you,
Narcissistic fool,

I can’t believe that you’re still standing,
How can you walk away from this?
With a smile on your face,
You will move onto the next best thing,
Like a mayfly your life will end,
As you make way for a new one,

This is not what you deserve,
You’ve broken every relationship,
You’ve earned your name,
You’ve earned your fate,

You will be swept away,
(Let go)
Broken,
Beaten,
You will find another place,
(Let go)
To call home,

Shed your skin,
Peel back the rotten façade,
You know in your heart,
This life is disposable,
Carry with you,
A thousand lies,
Carry with you,
A thousand lives lived,
Each until boredom claims you,
Until your satisfied,
You’ve bled everyone dry,
Of what they can give you,
You’re a narcissist,
You’re fucking selfish,
How can you not see this?
You’re tearing the world apart piece by piece,
And you couldn’t care less,

I can’t believe that you’re still standing,
How can you walk away from this?
With a smile on your face,
You will move onto the next best thing,
Like a mayfly your life will end,
As you make way for a new one,

I am glad I’m not a part of this,
You will tear down the ground you stand on,
Leaving behind in your wake,
A swarm of destruction,
Shed your skin,
Peel back the rotten façade,
Carry with you a thousand lies.
