With age comes unwanted knowledge,
and so develops my wish for ignorance.
My jaded eyes are burning with betrayal
and liquid hate. - How far idols fall
from their thrones when understanding plays a role.
Sewing the seeds of doubt
all hope is draining out,
Put back on the mask, candy coat the scene
I don't want to gaze upon the truth
When it's darker than the Shadows in me
i like this. i think its something everyone can relate to. everyone always put on that mask and sugar coats it, or as you say, "candy coat"... i like that, has a nice ring to it. but i like the first two lines even more. thats what i think alot of people can relate to, at least anyone who opens their eyes anyways. i also like the sixth and seventh lines. very true and right to the point, just like it needs to be said! great write, as always. keep up the good work. from what i can tell, your just getting better and better.
