slippin' away
like the hours of the day
reached for heaven but i fell
ended up in cold dark hell
journeys without end
sorrow that won't mend
tripped upon the shadow on my soul
though i never really had a goal

like a row boat on a stormy sea
demons slowly destroying me
work that's left undone
at the setting of the sun
don't be afraid
it's only life
it's all we'll ever know
though it cuts us like a knife
