I've lived my life without direction.
Holding on to a gift given long ago.
Because of this I'll pay for my mistakes the rest of my life.

Dragging my body along the black expanse.
I can smell the burning trail left behind.

I'm not a failure.
I'm not alone.
As this comes to a close I look back.
Hoping to see myself.
And it's not because of the blaze I've left.
It's possible I've burned everything in my path.
I turn back and say because of how you have lived your life you will not find your way again.
I look back.
Because of how you have lived your life,
you will not find your way again.

Because of this I'll pay for my mistakes the rest of my life.
I'm not a failure.
I'm not alone.
I've lived my life without direction holding on to a gift given long ago.

Dragging my body along the black expanse.
I can smell the burning trail I have left behind.
I'm not a failure.
I'm not alone.

    General CommentThis song is about how he has gotten so far in his career what ever he does now he can't go back to what life used to be like. As well he knows he was given a gift from an early age that he made into something but really it was just done simply by chance.

    Never has he been a failure or been alone from this choice of been a musician but he does see things that he could have done to make life much better now, though he does not regret anything really just has trouble understand how he did such stupid mistakes.
