I’ve lived in Desperate, I’ve lived in Despair
I’ve lived in Addicted and Drunk.
I’ve lived Half Lives, I’ve lived Half Dead
one foot kicking dirt in the grave.
I’ve lived both Bleeding and Scarred,
I’ve lived Broken and Torn.
I’ve lived in Fear, I’ve lived in Lies,
wishing Tomorrow would never come.
For a short time I lived in Heaven
with an Angel who showed me her wings.
I flew with her through the Clouds
but again found myself back in Hell.
I still owed rent on Darkness
my name on a lease in Despair.
And Drunk seemed like the shortest route
to keep me living In Between.
I came here to the Ocean
when Heaven sent me back to Hell.
To see if where the Earth meets the Sky
I could Begin again.
I’m trying to reside in Sober
having broken the lease on Drunk.
Trying to live in the Light
having hung curtains on the Dark.
The décor I’ve chosen is Quiet and Calm
filled in with Time To Think.
With daily trips to the Ocean
to rehydrate a Barren Soul.
I’ve decided to live in Happy, in Peace
in Sober, in Life, in Alive.
To forever leave the Darkness behind
the Place That I Used To Live.
