what if I live up to the masses
make a choice and render everything
give up these eyes what's more important
now that piper he turns to look at me
father said home is where the heart is
as the clock ticks on I fear a stye
to know which way the answer is
yes but why, yes but why
we won't sail through the desert
take these times all for granted again
choke on the reason
a goddamn face with no name
sail through the desert take these times all for granted again
and if I plow into none

weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll
weigh my fortune
weigh my fortune's toll


what if I ask for words of wisdom
and in the process choose to change my mind
give up to the friend that's in the past now
what can she give, she can't give life
as I turn my head I see lamb steeple
as I rise my eyes I see below
seems as though it comes about
more appealing
well that's just a lie

we won 't sail through the desert
take these times all for granted again
choke on the reason
a goddamn face with no name
Sail through the desert take these times all for granted again
and if I plow into none

weigh my fortune
Weigh my fortune's toll
weigh my fortune
weigh my fortune's toll

and in time, on this day
wishing I was in the back seat away

now these rocks, come around
and I choose to surrender myself
these are trying times with failing conclusions

fresh air

die die die die
long time and you can't come on to me
blind to watch you
now this time god has waged his war
now this time I will breathe no more
long time and you can't come on to me

    General Commentthese lyrics have to be some of Darroh's best work. They're so descriptive, and yet so cryptic at the same time. I've tried to figure out what it's about...but i cant put a coherent theory together :(
    Still, for one of the first songs FTM wrote...this is amazing!

    General CommentIt seems to me as if the person in this song is worried about what will happen if he tries to live up to the expectation of society, and how he may have to give up everything to do that.
