A man sleeps in a field that is his life,
His hands and heart are hard from constant strife,
He closed his eyes and with his head turned,
Just to wake and find that all his crops were burned,
He said “No one told me that grief felt so like fear”,
These simple truths are just too hard to hear,
Spent all my days watching my field grow,
Now so many years later I have nothing to show,
Chorus:
Move so fast building your house slow,
Then it falls apart after one blow,
You find your house is but one made of cards,
The oath to nothing is gradual,
In the calm commitments are casual,
When did avoiding the silence become so hard,
He says you don’t understand,
Peace child you can’t understand,
Verse 2:
They say memories just like people someday die,
But her absence spreads over everything just like the sky,
In the dark everything is not as it appears,
You can’t see anything clear with eyes full of tears,
And we scream to the sky and fume at the silent response,
We can’t spot the fulfillment of the will through our wants,
We can never replace the souls that we missed,
To dull the pain there is not a strong enough drug that exists
(chorus)
In your starvation is your mind new?
In your broken weakness what can you do?
It’s hard to see victories past the defeats,
It’s cruel that in our reality nothing repeats,
(Chorus x 2)
