lyrics

As a man I know what I should’ve done
As a son I knew what I was to know
As a boy I lacked all fitting in
And now I find it feels the same

I feel as if the glass is breaking in my hand
And the blood is warm yet soothing to my touch again

When my soul begins to shake
For the choices that I’ve made
I promise I’ll not take away your time
When the walls are closing in
I’m hesitating to begin
I’ll guide myself along with your voice

Cut now to the time I’ve spent away
Flash back if you will to the tears I shed, I shed all day
Had I not tread on these waters, I wouldn’t be here

I feel as if it’s fed upon my weakened mind
And the energy is gone for what was once sublime

When my heart becomes a wreck
And my life is just a mess
I’ll do my best not to complain again
When the key’s not fitting in
And I lack a sincere grin
To all the people throwing stares my way

Don’t tell me not to sigh
Don’t challenge my alibi
If I had reaped what I had sown
I would not, I would not be here

When my soul begins to shake
For the choices that I’ve made
I promise I’ll not take away your time
When the key’s not fitting in
And I lack a fucking grin
To all the people throwing stares my way
