lyrics

I’m living in a place where love and hate
Knows my name and puts my faith through haste
I’m running, I’m steady
I see it, I feel it
Though I am a diamond in the rough
Yet I sweep myself under the rug
I’m ready, I’m heavy
I see it, I feel it

Faded space, vague memories
What I would give for sanity
I’m inside, I want out
They are lingering around
I’m inside, I want out
They are holding me down

I crave a little Midas touch
Yet my heart says it is too much
I’m running, I’m steady
I see it, I feel it
Though I hold my body in decline
While I try to cross the finish line
I’m ready, I’m heavy
I see it, I feel it

I’m breaking down like the wall of Jericho
Rubbles filled with dust of vertigo
No more searching for light in the dark
I am spent yet I’ll stand to make my mark
