Waking The Dawn

Now that the boat is gone, what are we floating on?
I used to look into the future and see you
But sometimes there’s nothing left for two
When two turns to one and one turns to none
The hurtful words spat out cannot be undone

Now that the end is near, what’s still keeping us here?
We've depleted each other’s dreams
We've ignored each other’s screams
All the stories you tell are almost the same
Just mixed around with a different name

Now that the words have bled, why aren't we dead?
Screaming in the rain down upon my knees
Deliver me from this, WON’T YOU PLEASE?!
Pull me to the shore and cut off my life vest
Just don’t leave me here like you do the rest

Now that I’m on the shore, what am I fighting for?
I close my eyes and shake this thought
Wondering what’s real and what’s not
Is it the result of my self medication?
Or just the ongoing sleep deprivation?

Now that I’m someone new, what’s still holding you?
Since all the stars are gone, I’ll awaken the dawn…
Letting go of the night now
Waking the dawn for you…
