Weary Souls

What to say what to think 
These circumstances are pushing me to the brink 
of all that I know, of all that I will be 
what is it that defines me? 
I push and i shove 
to earn my place up above 

i can show u a place where the vultures nest 
wear all the weary souls come to rest 
where hope is a dream of despair 
nothing can compare 
all that we should fear is fear 
the memories will drag you right down hear 
where all the light is lost 
and we all pay a very big cost 

I fight for a better day 
and search for another way 
but how can i stay in this place
 when it all seems like a big rat race 

every day i fall and fade away 
and every day i cannot find my way 
and every single day my demons beg me to stay 
for another round of pain 
and to see who can gain 
the right to feel happiness again
