Hopelessly Hopeful - Asking Alexandria

Staring eyes wide open
Gazing into nothing
Running in place again
Going through the motions
In and out as the oceans
Repeating

Numb to the silence, to the absence of emotion
The sum of the script, nothing but a click in the rotation, yeah
Sick of the peace of mind that goes along with keeping on
And I can't keep on keeping on inside

It feels like I'm stuck here suspended at best underwhelming. What's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended in a world I pretended was right for me

Strung out on the same old
Got an itch for something painful
To feel something real once
To remind myself it's not in my head
Sick of the calm coinciding with sticking in and with the line
And I can't keep on keeping on and I'll just

Feels like I'm stuck here suspended at best underwhelming. What's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended in a world I pretended was right for me

When I close my eyes
When I leave the light

Inside it feels like I'm stuck here suspended at best underwhelming. What's wrong with me?
My conscious is calling but the world isn't all it's cracked up to be
I'm hopelessly hopeful
That I'm not stuck here suspended in a world I pretended was right for me
