lyrics

In case I forget
And the world won't relent
Keep moving forward
Despite time being spent

In case I forget
Dropped and hidden intent
I mean to go on
But will I settle for rent

If ever I wander
Home is inside
Directionless and lost?
Take a breath and bide

My heart keeps pumping
My soul must be alive
How can essence fade
If it's you that dies

There whispers a doubt
Flick and put it out
There appears a route
See what it's about

I feel practicality fading
Is that because things are simpler
Maybe it's tough to be strong
When life is going easy

Challenges with the know how
How to move unmeasured distance
Reach for that level unknown
But where to throw the bone

If ever I try to be them
Stop and try again
Those the most true are those the least subdued
Venturing beneath above the rest

If ever I can't confess
That I'm in or past a mess
Let me know that the scoreboard shows
Mistakes made known are stepping stones

If the world won't relent
If my armor feels a dent
Visit a blacksmith
And don't circumvent

Feel it inside
Life is a ride
You must be this ready
To stare at rolled dice

If time feels spent
With loans out of question
Speed up the slowing down
And answer what lingers

If apathy drags her feet unhindered
Without a care worth sparing
Don't put down a foot splintered
If you intend to stay through the wearing

In case I forget
Knows faded to I bets
I'm always going to be here
No matter how far I'm taken
I cant help but hold on
No matter how hard I'm shaken

Lighthouse shine on through the sea
Now anchor up, let's wake me
