Hold on

Hold it well
Don’t fold now

Just let us burn
We were always bound to fail
Our selfish turns and ways
Intrinsic lack of awareness

Too late
Too little too late

The jar is full, the yeast feeds, hold that lid on tight and let the air run out
Despite knowing what’s left we will continue

The jar is full
It’s only a matter of time
The jar is full
Now watch the end in its approach

The finality burns like nothing before
Thoughts and fears as everything goes
We never really knew how much we had and now it’s spent
But it’s too late for those who come next

Let the burn take hold
Feel it through yourself
There’s no escaping how we failed you

As the minutes pass this feeling numbs
We know we’re leaving you with nothing now

We wanted so much for you
Now there’s barely a scrap

These broken pieces we leave behind
We wish it wasn’t the end
But we’re tired and there’s nothing left

It all got too much
So we bailed and we left you
I wish it wasn’t like this

It’s just all too much
Less demanding to quit
I’m so sorry
