HOW MUCH LONGER?

Come and see the rat

Dormancy in black

Poke and prod again

Tease it of an end

 

Distant, straight faced, bottled up pent up rage

Thick skin, weak heart

Feels like I’m falling apart

 

Lighten up, it’s okay

You’re reading far too into it

Chin up, brush it off

Some things are better not known

 

Here you are now

Drawing me out

But I’d rather be on my own

Means so much that you care

(to me)

Seems like so long

Been sing’n this song

Like a tune without an end

Wish I could understand

(what it means)

 

How much longer?

Feels like we’re kill’n time.

Let’s see where this takes us.

And face what’s been inside.

I’ve got this feeling.

Like you’ve never quite been alone.

Is there someone else here?

In the shadows of the unknown.

 

Dark thoughts seek to separate and break you.

Hollowed out empty soul

Find it hard keeping control

 

Ugly with distress

Misplaced arguments

Full of regrets

To these I will atone

 

Here you are now

Drawing me out

But I’d rather be on my own

Means so much that you care

(to me)

Seems like so long

Been sing’n this song

Like a tune without an end

Wish I could understand

(what it means)

 

How much longer?

Feels like we’re kill’n time

Let’s see where this takes us

And face what’s been inside

I’ve got this feeling

Like you’ve never quite been alone

Is there someone else here?

In the shadows of the unknown

 

Like drowning alone with no one to call to

But I’ll just keep hang’n on

These waters are deep but I’ll swim my ass off if it means I’m alive

 

How much longer?

How much longer through it all?

How much longer?

 

How much longer through it all?

How much longer?

 

How much longer through it all?

How much longer?

 

How much longer through it all?
