playing with knife
dance on thin ice
passing through life
never think twice

chasing merit
no surrender
then lose credit
six feet under

keep up the pace
cross each border
don’t try to place
things in order

left alone, fell
out of grace
learned lessons well
forgot your face

ruined childhood toys
all vows shattered
echo my voice
be my shepherd

curses to break
ending the fight
lift me up make
my blood ignite
