Abstract – Dark Side lyrics

Thoughts invade your mind
Paint the worst of endings
Logic left behind
No longer pretending on the dark side of your imagination
Dark side of your imagination

Yeah
Paint it as dark and dreary as it could get
Every negative memory and scar in your chest
Hard to trust when trust is certain to rust
‘Cause you got a history with your mountains turnin’ to dust
Sandcastles out of quicksand, what do we expect?
All we need’s our own hands to lift us out of all the stress
Love the expectations ’cause a high is in effect
When the ones we put on others don’t go under and they’re met
In every way that we imagined so it’s tragic when they’re not
Me, I might go manic when it wasn’t what I thought
“My life is what I made it,” that’s a false sense of control
Can’t control others’ rotations through their phases so I roll
Up my ruminations with the worst ’cause I was told
My greatest gift’s my greatest curse, imagination takes its toll

Thoughts invade your mind
Paint the worst of endings
Logic left behind
No longer pretending on the dark side of your imagination
Dark side of your imagination

Yeah
I done came up with visions I turned into fruition
I done had my darkest nights turn my mind to a prison
I done turned to my closest, found out no one would listen
Create a fiction of who I wanted to see
And believed it ’til they showed me that’s just a product of me
Never was the version that I wanted them to be
So I rewrote every memory ’til they fit in my scene
False idols, false love, that’s false prophets
Blindsided, blind love ripped out my sockets
Just so I could live where the love ain’t reciprocated
And that’s just like playin’ god, and playin’ god can be dangerous
Am I the last of the real? The last who wants to feel?
Last who wants to be happy off something less than a mill’?
I’m twenty-six and sick of games, been givin’ and feelin’ drained
So is it so bizarre that I’d rather live in my brain?

Thoughts invade your mind
Paint the worst of endings
Logic left behind
No longer pretending on the dark side of your imagination
Dark side of your imagination
