One Thing Lyrics

One thing
It starts with one
It multiplies till you can taste the sun
And burnt by the sky you try to take it from
But if it falls there's no place to run
Crumbling down, It's so unreal
They're dealing you in to determine your end
And sending you back again to the places you've been
And bending your will till it breaks you within
And still they fill they're eyes
With the twilight through the skylight
And the highlight's on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad with the way I feel
Hear screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like your heartless take apart this in the darkness
But I know that I've

Chorus:
I tried so hard
And got so far
But in the end
It doesn't even matter
I had to fall
To lose it all
But in the end
It doesn't even matter

I've looked down blind and once there is not what ought
to be
Held back by the battles they fought for me
Calling me to be part of their property
And now I see that I get no chance
I get no break, fakes and snakes quickly lead to
mistakes
And as the tightrope within slowly starts to thin
I can only hope that they close they're eyes
To the twilight through the skylight
And the highlight's on a frame of steel
See the brightness of your likeness
As I write this on a pad to the way I feel
Hear screaming in my dreaming
As it's seeming that you played your part
Like your heartless take apart this in the darkness
But I know that I've

Chorus

I don't know why
It doesn't even matter how hard you try keep that in
mind
I designed this rhyme
To explain in due time
All I know
Time is a valuable thing
Watch it fly by as the pendulum swings
Watch it count down to the end of the day
The clock ticks life away
It's so unreal
Didn't look out below
Watch the time go right out the window
Trying to hold on, but didn't even know
Wasted it all just to watch you go
I kept everything inside and even though I tried, it
all fell apart
What it meant to me will eventually be a memory of a
time when
Chorus
I've put my trust in you
Pushed as far as I can go
And for all this
There's only one thing you should know (3x)
Chorus
One thing, I don't know how
It doesn't even matter when you look at it now
'Cause when I designed this rhyme
I was scared of it all, scared to fall, and I hadn't
even tried to crawl
But I was forced to run with you mocking me, stopping
me, backstabbing me constantly
Remembering all the times you fought with me
Watch the clock now chock-full of hipocrisy
But now your mouth wishes it could inhale
Every single little thing you said to make things fail
Every single word you sputtered just to get your piece
But it really doesn't matter to me
'Cause from the start to the end, no matter what I
pretend
The journey is more important than the end or the start
And what it meant to me will eventually be a memory of
a time when I tried so hard
