It's for The Best - Straylight Run

And it takes more time than I've ever had.
Drains the life from me,
makes me want to forget.
As young as I was, I felt older back then.
More disciplined, stronger and certain.

But I was scared to death of eternity,
I was saved by grace,
but destroyed by naivety.
And I lied to myself
and said it was for the best.

So now faith is replaced with a logic so cold.
I've disregarded what I was.
Now that I'm older
and I know much more than I did back then.
But the more I learn,
the more I can't understand.

And I've become content with this life that I lead,
Where I drink too much and don't believe in much of anything.
And I lied to myself
and said "it's for the best."

We're moving forward, but holding ourselves back,
and we're waiting on something that will never come.
