These endless days of grey
The sun burns my skin and my soul blisters.
This pain, though I detest it, brings validation
This is the world that I'm living in.
Why must I waste my breath in a world that brings me joy no longer
Death seems so far away and distance makes the heart grow fonder
I'm racing myself to the limit of my worth
Balancing on the scales of my own mortality
Who wins when I lose?
Who gains when I'm lost?
I leave nothing when my ripple ends, just another calm in the sea of grey
Shed my skin and reach for the sun
Maybe in death there's more peace than life
Maybe some rest will bring me peace of mind
