In the Sun 02:46
And yet again I’m in the debris Under collapsed walls of conjecture and history When you worry it all, you worry yourself small And make it feel like you can do nothing at all There’s only one time you’ve got to live It’s called the present, the here, the now If you don’t believe me Let me try to show you how Yes the future is where we can be Better tomorrows come from productive todays But it’s not here till it is so don’t let it come crashing down Unless you’d rather be stuck with a frown Yes the past somehow seems to last Over and over we remember what could have been had But as life goes on you’ll only get farther away from them So don’t make now another past you regret For too long I’ve laid here in this debris For too long I’ve tried and couldn’t see I’ve got a chance to rise from it all It may not be perfect but I’ll take it I’m sick of being small Those times spent under it all Make me feel I’ve lived a thousand years When it’s just you in a box with darkness When it’s just you in a box with fears I’ve come to realize it didn’t all happen at once Slowly and slowly I’ve made and rebuilt walls You think they keep you safe, you think they’re there to help But for every time they’ve fallen in, were you glad you had them? Stop spending all your time on palaces of possibility And grand pyramids of days come and gone There’s now all around you, Now as far as the eye can see Get out of this mess you’re in And make yourself a worthy history I’m ready to break these shackles I’ll figure out why I was in them later If I actually want to see clearly I’d be better off in the sun "All that glitters is gooolllddd..."

On my way back By these breadcrumbs of mine Chasing them backward Ever lesser the time Sometimes it feels Like my memories come to me In an instant The more I learn The more I seem to remember Trying to figure out what I had When I didn’t know what it was A storehouse full of moments With nothing but because Revelations Empty Stations Is anybody else on this ride? I got on and spread my legs In this cabin till I’ve found today Inside I’ve found an archive Of things I’ve lived and held close Though never understood Like something hid beneath a flower’s pedals Waiting to bloom when the sun was true The attendant of circumstance Always brings a meal The conductor of reality Keeps us between the rails They never asked for my ticket Because the voyage is mine The baggage I brought on Seems little now The view outside the window Seems not to matter to progression Onward and forward As I’ve learned that lesson Up the hills and over the mountains Will and wisdom know few bounds Life can be stingy enough But the good deeds will come round From above there seems but steam A cloud of what I try to mean The bumps I feel remind me still Of what little can be to those once ill Through the cabins Eyeing more There’s plenty yet To be in store On my way back By these breadcrumbs of mine Going through life Ever lesser the time
