A song about being a part of something better but feeling unworthy; realizing that the strength you found inside might be fleeting and another decline might be inevitable. A plea to whoever or whatever will listen to help you keep in control of things.


All I do
Is chase the sun
Run like hell
Not sure what from
Feet are bruised
Hands are burned
Don't know if I'll
Soon return...

But if I stop
There will be hell to pay
But to whom
I cannot stay
I'm slowing down
It's what I fear
The shadow's behind
Are getting near

But as I slow
I start see
The night is when
I feel at peace

What is this I finally see?
Is it the strength that I seek?

If it is I cannot lie
It arrived
Right in the nick of time
'Cause I was starting to
Lose the scope
And feel at home
On a downward slope

There is no
Life for me here
So why do I
Hold it so dear?
It isolates me
From those I love
My jaw is clenched
And my stomach's fucked

Nothing at all...


What is this I see in me?
Is it the strength that I seek?
Will I stay in this place?
Or will it all just drift away?

What is this I finally feel?
A glimpse of serenity
Could this be real?
I've waited so long
To see you
Please, don't leave
Or I'm through

Oh, I'm so afraid...
