A SONG TO CARRY ON



I don't want to feel so small, and I don't want to climb this wall. So I wrote another song to carry on. I hear whispers "You're not good enough" and "You can't live on if you're not tough" all the stuff that makes it rough when you lose touch.

There's a scar on my heart, but it's not on my skin. Here's my art in the dark living proof that I've been here.

Oh...

I hate my sensitive and stubborn brain that won't lead me anywhere but hurricanes where I'll sing in the rain despite the pain. I see missiles in the nighttime sky and at those times I don't wanna die so I try to rely on just one of those things being a lie.

There's a war we ignore just to keep some inner peace. That was me before I was sure that wasn't the life I should lead. Was I wrong?

Some days I wish I was somebody else. Someone with the strength to hang their dreams upon a shelf. Some semblance of security. Some money when you want to eat. And whether you make it isn't determined by whether or not you're everybody's taste. That leaves a bitter one in my mouth. I'd like to get up by my own two feet somehow.

Oh...

I don't want to feel so small, and I don't want to climb this wall. So I wrote another song to carry on.
