I've been waiting for so long
Anything would be better than sitting here
In this spot, listening to the same songs
Over and over again while staring at the walls
I am no martyr, the responsibility is mine
I chose this sacrifice, this enlightenment
For without struggle there would be no purpose to my life
I'm hanging by my left ankle from a tree in my backyard

Looking up at the church shadowing over me
Stained glass, my casket as I'm withering away
I hope this will be worth it, it will be worth it
This is the only thing I could ever ask for
All I've ever wanted in my entire life
I rest easy, the day will come

Every day we wake with a blank page
We need to make this a story worth telling
Be it comedy or be it tragedy
The meaning's in the way you perceive it
I rest easy, the day will come

When you grasp ahold of me
feel it's worth it to be lucky and free
The desire for passion or camaraderie
Stems from the same need
We belong to each other as a conscious dream

When the day comes, together we'll march to the sea
And when our bodies reach the coast, slowly drifting
All the people will propose a toast, glasses lifted
Dancing and singing in unison
Eyes to the sky, hearts set on the sun
