Call me a coward, it's so fitting.
I flee from open doors.
They are creaking, cracking open, and there is no way I'll ever escape them all.

I will proceed in fear. For what is yet to come, I don't know, but I'll carry on. I'll carry on. Farther and farther from all that I once held.

Call me a coward, it's so fitting. I flee from open doors. They are creaking, cracking open, and there is no way I'll ever escape them all.

I've tried so hard to conspire against the ever present threat time has on me. It is threatening what I call home. I hold tighter and tighter but I know I've never been that strong.

Call me a coward, it's so fitting. I flee from open doors. They are creaking, cracking open, and there is no way I'll ever escape them all.

I said I would sail the roughest of seas to find some peace, but I'm backing out again, because I want my oceans in a spoon; where they're short and shallow;something that I can swallow.

    General CommentIt's a story of God throwing him into situations that he can't handle, but knows that he must. He's running away from the doors that God is opening, but knows that it's the Lords will that prevails. He goes along in fear and tries to hold on tight, but knows that in himself he can't do it. He then fully gives up. He set out with such a large mission, but now that he's seen the cost he wants to go back to a comfortable life instead of this one.
