Dead Optimist

I’ll wear my heart on my sleeves so when I sleep I can feel the weight of my soul but I don’t hear a beat
I hear a scream, it says
Let me spread my wings, set me free
Don’t hold me down, just let me seek
My brightest thoughts, my darkest hours
I didn’t live if I died a coward, but I’m buried alive
My flame will burn through my coffin and only get brighter
Till Im tired of this rock and go among the other lights
I’m a star you should look up at
