I think I'd rather be down here
where all I seem to be is fear.
I know it's shady and it's strange
but, I will wait for perfect change.
Kinda like it where it's low.
I don't know which way to go.
I see some things I've seen before
like, how my soul inheres the floor.
A murky muddle through the day,
feels like it's just the prisoner's way
but, here and there I get a peek
of promise more than "UP" can seek.
"UP" is lofty but, shades the way
that "down" can bring me into day.
I'll be down here, I'll wait for you.
"UP" lies to me, its words aren't true.
It must be so, just like you said,
"When weakness comes, I'm strong instead."
My heart's so empty, fill me now,
I'll wait for you to show me how.
