Searching for Clarity,
Through the White Noise of my Heart.
It’s made all the easier
With these thoughts of You.
Just give me all of your Truth
And I’ll show you a Night
Brightened by Stars.
Give me your Emeralds of Hope,
And I’ll show you the reason
You’ll Stay in Love.
Search for Clarity,
Through all the Lost signals.
I’ll prove to you the Strength
Of One Man’s Real Commitment.
Throughout the years of Wrong Ways,
I’ve endured the same pain
of Stepping Stones,
Thankful that I could at last
Find your Consideration.
Let me pull your heart closer,
It’s already found a Home in Mine.
Let us find Clarity,
Through our Love.
Through sorrow filled gasps of despair,
I breathed in a rancid smell of failure.
It was a constant reminder of us.
Chewed and spit into gutter trash,
I remained a man of broken hopes.
Though my throat was harsh,
drinking in your excuses seemed pleasant enough.
I began to paint a Joker’s smile on my face,
so swallowing this disappointment wouldn’t look too painful.
And I shall fear no evil,
Whether you believed in me or not.
The time for beliefs are over.
I’ll lead myself away from this sorrow
And forget the heartache of your promise.
Discarding these shackles behind me,
I can walk on my own.
I’ll grip my strength
with stumbling fingers,
cursing with mumbling lips,
and find my own Shine
in all of this Darkness.
Leaving me to myself
was a dangerous choice.
I’ve always had the embers to start a fire,
Now this blazing in my chest is unforgiving.
I will use this pain as my weapon,
Sharpened by all of my fallen attempts.
I know I won’t walk with footprints beside me,
But my weapon will clear all the Valleys
that lay ahead.
