lyrics

Wondering quietly if I’ve said all there is to say
How many ways can I word the same phrase?
Fresh from the quill
My head is now much less filled
Onto the paper, my thoughts, they all spilled
Should I continue on down this path of status quo?
What good is a life not lived, not allowed to grow?
Turn the page, chapter 2
This story’s still based on you
Some say, “look at what you’ve got.”
I say, “look at what I’ve lost.”
What I’ve lost…
Should I continue on down this path of status quo?
What good is a life not lived, not allowed to grow?
Watch the others shuffle by each day, each day more the same
Leave them to their ennui, I intend to win this game.
While others marvel at the yellow, orange, red
I prefer to see the green that isn’t quite yet dead
Tell me now, what’s left, after all the rest?
Where will I breathe my last breaths?
