The alarm clock ringsÂ…
I feel so weak
And the sunlight shining in my eyes it makes it hard to sleep
The rooms are cold
Smell like piss and blood
Everyday I wake I feel I'm knee deep in the flood
Spending days passing through and moving on
Never realizing what I've had until it's gone
And now my eyes are open wideÂ…

I can't go on
Singing the same old songs that I have always sung
About life and loss and the places I belong
Singing the same old songs that I have always sung
Hoping the melodies will carry me homeÂ…

The alarm clock ringsÂ…
The floor is cold, before my eyes are open I'm falling out the door
The wind is fierce
It chaps and burns my eyes
It all sounds well and fine just fucking try it on for size
Day in day out
The hammers fall
It's all in due time that they come to crush us all
And now my eyes are open wideÂ…

I can't go on
Singing the same old songs that I have always sung
About life and loss and the places I belong
Singing the same old songs that I have always sung
Hoping the melodies will carry me home

Follow this path until it fails
Carry my life on fingernails
I will sing until my throat goes numb
Be the chance you'll never take
When it stares you in the face
I will sing while I'm still young

I will sing while I'm still young
