Here I am, complain again
Where are my good times
with whom and when?
Pitiful me, pitiful I
Alone on my bed, awake as I lie
Time is short and patience wanes
I need some closure promptly
Turn it up and pace the feign
Remember to tread lightly
More complex it grows by the hour
Wither, wilt, and die, like a flower
Journal, journal, on the page
Tell me how come must I age?
Burdens again find me of late
How much more can I fit on my plate?
Slowly balance one upon ten
Fall to the floor, and I start again…


from Blue Skies Black, released February 29, 2012
