Hawthorne Heights Lyrics

9. Picket Fences



The places I remember are getting worn and withered 
My heart's the picket fences and needs a little mending 
am I not everything you thought I should be? 

The faces in the picture are burnt just like the real ones 
Our skin is the exposure it's gotten so much older 
But am I not everything you thought I should be? 

This life long competition still reeks of repetition 
I've failed at everything I tried to do 
my life plays in front of you 
And now I've realized there's nothing left for me to hide 
I've opened myself enough for the world to see my guts 

Where are you now? and where have you been? 
Everything and everyone, Everything and everyone 
Must come to an end 

The children in the school yard have grown so cold and tired 
The shift is almost over I'm praying I don't get fired 
Life isn't everything I thought it should be 

The bills left on the table will be payed if I was able to 
Work a few more hours, my life has grown so sour 
Because I'm not everything I thought I could be 

This life long competition still reeks of repetition 
I've failed at everything I tried to do 
my life plays in front of you 
And now I've realized there's nothing left for me to hide 
I've opened myself enough for the world to see my guts 

Where are you now? and where have you been? 
Everything and everyone, Everything and everyone 
Must come to an end 

The places I remember are getting worn and withered 
My heart's the picket fences and needs a little mending 
am I not everything you thought I should be?
