The days of youth are gone, living on only in memories and dreams
And the future is ours to construct and maintain
We must remain true to ourselves, and who we are, and where we came from
Don’t just play the part like a puppet on broken strings
Seeking elevation, without a single fucking storm on the horizon to pull me down
Nothing pulls me down
The values that we keep, the morality we carry inside
Provides us with protection from misdirection
Deception takes on such familiar forms
Friends turn to foes
Digging deeper, they’ll find your weakness
Stay on your toes, it’s always those least expected
This is how it goes
Justice, rebuilding my faith
A punishment foreseen, placing the final piece
The puzzle now complete
Retribution has become obsolete
Concentration on the target will bring victory
I can almost hear their voices calling me
Calling me back home
Eden lies beyond
Across the mighty oceans, through the bluest of skies
Into an endless sunset, that’s where you’ll find me
I am home, where I belong
This breath of life, a sign of hope
The beating of my heart proves to me I’m alive
Now I feel
I feel compelled to create, to paint a better world for myself
And to live again
