  • Oh, my pretty precious stone
    Just left me in ribbons
    With my heart sliced carefully
    You wear it like a cheerful bow

    There's a light that you now adore
    But the bringer is cast down
    I have never been before
    So unhappy in my whole life

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    I found my last light but it died like all the others (all the others)

    Oh, my painful fatal flaw
    May your cruelty find you
    May the scars you left in me
    Dig into you twice as deep

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others
    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    I found my last light but it died like all the others

    I know you'll look away while I'm crying
    I know you'll wear that bow with a smile
    Everything I gave you, it was wasted
    Love further down, adore that denial

    I stopped feeling numb, now I have to be
    Because I trusted you I cannot trust another
    Heart stops beating, what was brutality?
    You were my last light so I'll die like all the others

    Heart stops beating, beat like a brutal day
    You were my first faith, made of lies like all the others, all the others Writer/s: Adam A Carson, David Paden Marchand, Hunter Lawrence Burgan, Jade Errol Puget
