Trigger bullet points… Do as they say… Don’t you dare disappoint… Silence your voice… As if you had no choice…. Speak no truths today…. We apologize for the televised delays…. Audio muted and edited out the words…. We all knew what they had to say…

Falling over… All the promises I wanted you to make… And I kept this dream alive… Despite the fears keeping me awake… And I loved you… I guess karma needed to teach me how to… Protect my heart and let it be true… All paths… Led straight back.. To you…
