In a wake of serenity
I feel my pullers pull
Pulling me toward the end of day
Existentially

Red folly
In honorable display
Count the ways
I fail to lay

Keep your eyes shut
For it's impossible to see
see with them open
I never understood why I couldn't find myself
I'm right here

We really do read the books
Not noticing the pages that are torn
Even with the scribbled out words
The sentence does make sense

Keep your eyes shut
For it's impossible to see
see with them open
I never understood why I couldn't find myself
I'm right here

I walk through these bare halls
And wonder why
I give death the benefit of the doubt

It just seems like
Fate is an excuse
For accepting the not, can't, and won't

Keep your eyes shut
For it's impossible to see
see with them open
I never understood why I couldn't find myself
I'm right here
