The Lights Reflects my Best Intentions
But Even I Don't Know What's Best Anymore
I Once Tried My Hand at Construction
Constructing a Place Where I Belong
Where I Can Fit
But Even I Can't Lift These Bricks Anymore
I Scream at my Default Setting
LIVE, LAUGH, CRY, SMILE
I Try Not To Always Write So Darkly
But Soon Everyday at Half Five I'll Be Surrounded By It
I Walk Through History in a City That Knows Too Much
"You've Taken Something from Me, You've Taken My Light"
Can I Run Again?
Because I Feel Like I've been Running My Whole Damned Life
