lyrics

Conflicted in nature, a means to an end
A silent transition, the wrong place to begin
A life to follow and the beaten choked down
We’re swallowed by these contributions
And I never knew what I was up against.
This enigmatic goal laughs within reach
Discarnate hands hold me under and release my breath
“I made it out.”
“I survived the day.”
“The weight is gone.”
That’s all I want to say.
Plans fail too often, too young to see
I wanted a new start, an irrational outlook
Callused hope and then I took too much time to make a defeated choice.
And I never knew what I was up against.
This enigmatic goal laughs within reach
Discarnate hands hold me under and release my breath.
“I made it out.”
“I survived the day.”
“The weight is gone.”
That’s all I want to say.
With all of my options laid before me, I now know what I’m up against:
I’m up against the wall.
There has to be an easier way.
“I made it out.”
“I survived the day.”
“The weight is gone.”
That’s all I want to say.
