I know I was born and I know that I'll die/the in between is mine

82. I'm like an opening band for the sun
vs.
I've lived all these lives/like an ocean in disguise

83. Behind her eyes there's curtains/ and they've been closed to hide the flames
vs.
If I knew where it was I would take you there/there's much more than this

84. I’ve got memories/I’ve got shit/so much it don’t show
vs.
I want to race with the sundown/I want a last breath that I don’t let out

85. All the photographs are peeling, and colors turn to gray

Oh I will stare the sun down, until my eyes go blind


Tie Breakers: Do not vote here if you voted in the last round

75. With heavy breath, awakened regrets/Back pages and days alone that could have been spent, together/but we were miles apart/Every inch between us becomes light years now
vs.
Stunned by my own reflection/It's looking back, sees me too clearly

78. I changed by not changing at all
vs.
No time to be void, or save up on life/you gotta spend it all
