There’s a caution in those eyes
An age I’ve never seen
A hatred in his life
I swear that wont be me
Am I an ember in the warm hearth?
Destined to shine brighter till I burn out?
I think I’m falling out of love with the idea of playing a part

In the protocols and duties that have stolen my heart from its proper place
It’s locked anyway
And with my half baked motivations
I’m a sedentary animal
Forever expectant for invitation

There’s a caution in those eyes
An age I’ve never seen
A hatred in his life
I swear that wont be me
All but an ember in the warm hearth
Destined to shine brighter till I burn out
I’m falling out of love with the idea of playing a part
In the protocols and duties that have stolen my heart from it’s proper place

Every Tuesday night when I’m feeling blue
Gathering dust in the sheets
Staring up at the roof
I’ll tell myself that I’ve done enough
Or I’m too low to try and keep myself
Moving and chipping away
At the 9 to 5 sledge that I’ll grow to

Hate.
