about

For any of you struggling--you can do it and you can do it on YOUR terms.

lyrics

Moving away from you
I don't know if it was the right thing to do
Cannot be an invalid
Crawling my basement brick wall
My brown eyes would turn into these hard little balls
Willing nothing
Needing something....

Something's always wrong
But it's better this way for me
This society
Will not put me away.

Being where I belong
I don't know if I'm doing it wrong
I've had one place I've called my home
But it's only between you and me
Under a different sky sitting under that tree
By the old house
Waiting quietly

But I know damn well
That it's someplace I cannot be
This society
Would put me away.

There's no paychecks where I'd like to spend my time
No children, no marriage, no world to find
The crowd won't be cheering, the lights would all dim
Just a disability check and sagging skin

So bright potentially
Shooting star blowing up with precocity and
One day I met with you
Always waiting there inside the walls
Just waiting for me to drop the ball
Like a lover so sick we're biding our time
You're the only thing I have that's truly mine

And a day it will come when I meet with you
All my nightmares and dreams coming true, but I
Don't believe I'll be leaving with you.
'Cause this time I've got other things I've got to do.
