Lost without a firm grasp.

Pondering all that is meaningful,
Yet it is nothing!

Misery shapes your sea in a cold nights stare, every bone has been picked and the cupboard is bare.

You can't help but wonder what could've been, if only she noticed and the uncovered was seen. I take this long walk forever once more a dim light in the distance, a crack in the floor.

You'll never defeat me, I'll never back down! I'm here for my walk on your side of the town.

I yell and I shout look up at the sky question myself I scream to God "why?"

Remember the faces lost in the crowd.
Remember the voice who shouts it aloud.

We're in this together why can't you see?

What we're creating a mystery it shall be.

I walk amongst the unknown and into
The Sun.
