lyrics

Darkened roads are not worth running
When all you see is what’s not coming
Straight ahead, out through your eyes
A foreign bed in which you lie

A classic case of mental friction
When you correlate the facts and fiction
In your head with what’s out your eyes
What you said was coated with lies

You’ve grown old, but I’ve grown bolder
You may be strong, but I’m a soldier
Back from war to unlock the door
I feel the cold upon your shoulder
Not the warmth, the somber smolder
At your core that I felt before

You approached with affirmation
As I groped for admiration
From your eyes, they swiftly led
To my demise, I should’ve fled

You’ve grown old, but I’ve grown bolder
You may be strong, but I’m a soldier
Back from war to unlock the door
I feel the cold upon your shoulder
Not the warmth, the somber smolder
At your core that I felt before
