From the recording Can't Be My Life


Can’t Be My Life

My skin is peeling
Too long burned
No nerves left alive
To tell me
The waters I’m moving through
Don’t lift me like before
Sinking I’m thinking that there must be more

It’s nothing like what I imagined
This can’t be my life
Become what I turned away from
This can’t be my life

Laid out before me
As a boy
I swear I almost saw the summit
All covered with dust and cobwebs
But still on the wall
Carefully placed to not be
Reached at all
