By Any Means

I continue to struggle, because the trouble never stops
Running away from stress, but the cycles tied in a knot
And I confess, I've walked through the shadow of the valley of death
But I held my rod and got comfortable, and I finished my quest

Now we're back to the beginning, the cycle is never ending
I can remember the darkness, but the daylight is winning
I went through the sinning, and I know that there's more to come
But I'm still the same person, it's like you froze over the sun

Through dreams I'm keeping it real, but fiction is never far
My reality is based on the wound that causes the scar
Lucid dreaming, I'm in control of my path, my goals
You're reading it out of context, and taking away my soul

The quick assumptions, are nothing but inferences
Not only wrong, you want the truth, well you're missing it
Truth is, I make my decisions and I know my mistakes
I know my friends and I'm not surrounded by slithering snakes

By Any Means, I'll get through the dark of the night
I'll shine my light, and spark the ember that turns bright
So wrong or right, I'll make it to an even brighter day
By Any means, I'll turn around the total disarray

    You're a very emotional guy, Aaron. And I mean that in a good way. I feel as though too many people act painfully indifferent towards problems and just hope they go away if you ignore it long enough. But with you, you recognize there's a problem and try your best to overcome it. I believe the world would have a lot less stress if they just had the ability to write out their true feelings like you are capable of... "I can remember the darkness, but the daylight is winning" <<< Love!
