Vash's Song

the soup is getting colder
think I'll stay in bed today
the view would be so lovely
damn this planet in the way
& I can hear your breathing
pleading through the open door
the trouble with my mind is
I'm no different than before

the world is getting crueler
& there's nothing I can do
I might have had the right once
but I couldn't see this through
so don't claim I'm forgiven
or remind me of my calling
cause nothing can convince me
I couldn't stop the sky from falling
but you say

(chorus 1)
"now you know the blood on your hands
can't come clean so easily
& you could lie like this forever
but it wouldn't make you free
yes, I know what's been done to you
I've heard the words he's spoken
but what if you decided
that your spirit wasn't broken?"

I made my bed the moment
that I tucked this promise in
scars join & merge like rivers
I can't say where they begin
I hide under the covers
dream a future with the dead
the truth that I'm ignoring
I know what she would have said
I hear it

(chorus 1)

cause the world is made of hatred
& the world is made of lies
& the world is made of what you get
when you stoop to compromise
but the world is made of our love
& the world is made of peace
so the only way now out is through
on the way to my release
so my mind's made up already
almost like I've always known
hope she knows I can't forget her
but I'll find my own way home

(chorus 2)
now I know the blood on my hands
can't come clean so easily
& I could lie like this forever
but it wouldn't make me free
& the damage has been done to me
from all the words he's spoken
but what if I decided
that my spirit wasn't broken?

(chorus 2 2x)

A song from the perspective of one of my very favorite fictional characters,
Vash the Stampede of Trigun.
