lyrics

How could something so beautiful
Turn back into the dust?
A pristine exterior
With an inside, red with rust

She covered it up
And showed the pictures, that everyone wanted to see
Ones of aesthetic design, and a perfect loving family
We're all fools, we never noticed
What really lies beneath

An ivy league track runner admitting her defeat
One last hurdle over the railing
To kiss the hard concrete

Without warning, we never saw
The writing on the wall
Scribbled under every scene
Was a message to us all

How could we have known?
Asks her father as he pieces together her misery
Where were all her demons?, as all I see
Are perfect captured memories
Ones that spit on the wounds, and inspire jealousy

An ivy league track runner admitting her defeat
One last hurdle over the railing
To kiss the hard concrete

I know
You want to win this battle
But I am not at war with you
(We knew freshmen year was hard, that's all we knew, all we knew)

An ivy league track runner admitting her defeat
One last hurdle over the railing
To kiss the hard concrete
