"False Hopes" (DDLC 5)

You leave me jumpy
I leave you a promise
You make me laugh
I give you vertigo

My heart goes doki-doki
There’s music in the air
I’m feeling unrestrained
It’s like an anime love story

And it feels wonderful but
                                        

These fluffy feelings
Thoughts of a kiss
Turn into something to covet
What did I miss

When amazing turns to clumsy
Flying to defeat
And it’s already a no
But I still feel it in my heartbeat

And an eternity in mind
Just went poof cause I’ve been blind
Things are horribly mistaken
I don’t trust the road I’ve…

"Breathe" (DDLC 4)

I watch you passing judgment
And barely remember to breathe
What happened to the peaceful
promise that we’d seen?

What is in your prayer
So precious it can’t be seen
Watching the world turn unstable
Is that really what you mean?

These thoughts will fester
No matter how nice or mean
Is it love that drives this
Is it frightening you like me?

I can’t tell you to stop
You’d pout, wouldn’t listen to me
But your pain is real, believe it
Think it, say it, grieve

Don’t leave us disoriented
Don’t leave us with no room to grieve…

"And Then There Were None" (DDLC 3)

So fickle, unstable
You’re in a pickle, are you able
To survive out in the ocean, well, of course not
Better jump out the window ‘fore you get shot

And now you’re left to atone
Although you’re the one alone
Determination won’t get you out of this one
It’s agonizing but admit it; that dream’s done

Being captive to the question
Keeps you floating in the starscape
As the shards explode, uncontrollable
I can’t believe you were actually that gullible

At what point will you see it
The cage that lets you be it
The memories…
