[x]the phoenix came down here to die.

these are the sacrifices i make for you
to be ever more vicious in my elegance
not quite painting myself in a corner
but walking in a slow spiral
playing chicken with this depression
in my absolute arrogance
i wonder who will back down first
when my heart has nothing left to lose...
don't worry, everything will be okay - i promise
this is me at my most self aware
embracing that which is killing me
and that which isn't just making me darker
my eyes are jade, my eyes are open
as i take a step into the void
and hope to somehow come out the other side
this is something i have to do
this phoenix came down here to die
villain as i am, my hand is in the fire
yet a lack of pain is what hurts the most
