"Missing This Opportunity" lyrics - AUGUST BURNS RED

"Missing This Opportunity"

Time and time again, will his knowledge lead his aggression?
You insist on bringing home a broken child, just like you
Is this failure what you're grinning at?
Don't shut the curtain
Don't block the view of precious portraits sending signals of grace
It's the only thing left standing in the light
I've got nothing else, but your fire hasn't gone out just yet
Is this the best of what you are?
Well it remains subtle, remains silent
I'll bring it
I'll show them
Unleashed in a second, I'll catch them off guard
It hurts to say that I'm at a loss for words, but you've brought this on yourself
Seems to feel better when taking a step outside
The wind will carry my thoughts much easier
Don't be so blind
Just stop and look around to what you're missing- these opportunities
There could be something nice to say to you
Maybe the next time we meet, you will be smarter in choosing your place in this world for a promising purpose
