Seeking out adversity I go to war against despair and Courage is not without fear But the way you rise above it You say it’s only by the faith of god But to that I remain objected It’s the personal struggle The war within us That’s conquered by the mind You say we’ll never know You say we’ll never understand The sound of triumph Reaching out from within our hearts The sound of triumph It’s burned deep from the very start You challenge all my passions You challenge my dedication And say my words will never break Through to the conflicted So what are you gonna do And what are you gonna say When hell marches with you And all stand against us Will you fight for another day
October Sky 02:17
I’d give it all A plea for life For one more sight An October sky I felt the winds change I watched the sun set And all the trees go from green to lifeless And in the blink Of an eye I saw my world die I stand to make sure Your memory remains And in song I write to keep you alive It’s like ten-thousand knives laying waste to my heart And in the lessons I learned from you You were everything I am not In morning walks Til night time falls So with this love I hope to repay you And in song I’ll keep you alive I hear the chorus of the wind, it says you live October sky I will never let your death be in vain I will never let you walk away A rose in time’s unforgiving crawl Searching for your face In its petal’s endless fall That sun still flaunts a dying light in the same October sky
I would break the hands of time For one more chance To make this right I would drain Every last drop of blood from my wrist If the world would stop in place And give me the hope to rectify this In desperate times I live by desperate means And you’re with me like dust to the wind I hope you’ll still follow me wherever I go Ive took for granted the time we’ve spent I’ve bit the barrel then choked on it Hoping that the fear would swallow my pride In a house of cards that’s never stood right In desperate times i love by desperate means And you are all I need So pick up the pieces Swallow your pride In becoming a person you’ve trapped in a lie I hope you’ll still follow me wherever I go
