Lyrics
A place that I could go to,
No longer welcomes me,
Outcasted and rejected,
I never thought I'd leave.
No longer is it sacred,
It's tainted through and through,
I thought that it was different,
Now I know that isn't true.

You wear it on your sleeve,
I wear it in my heart,
You were so quick to finish,
I have yet to start.
Something far to perfect,
Is never what it seems,
The reality I wanted,
Lives only in my dreams.
It's so sad that your life revolves around a fad,
You're burning down your future
While you build up your past.

You wear it on your sleeve,
I wear it in my heart,
You were so quick to finish,
I have yet to start
The unity they sold me
Was an ugly ****ing lie.

They've cast me out,
And I've seen the truth 'cause I opened my eyes.
A fantasy I lived in has now crashed back to the ground,
Now nothing looks the same,
It's all been turned around.

I thought that I could leave it
And change the way things are,
But I lived that way for years,
And nothing's changed so far.

You wear it on your sleeve,
I wear it in my heart,
You were so quick to finish,
I have yet to start
It took so long to build it,
This home I thought I'd found,
But where there's smoke there's fire,
And now it's burning down.
