Give It All

November 15, 2009

I collapse like a marionette

Where are your gentle hands?

My legs bust and splinter

I forgot about my burden

I've surrendered my movement

Goodbye to everything I know

Goodbye to putting on a show

Fight off my pride and let it go

I signal like a mime

Where are your truthful words?

My mouth cracks and dries

I forgot about my lies

I've surrendered my folly

Goodbye to everything I know

Goodbye to putting on a show

Fight off my pride and let it go

I trip like a child

Where are your cozy arms?

My knees and elbows chafe

I forgot about my race

I've surrendered my life

Goodbye to everything I know

Goodbye to putting on a show

Fight off my pride and let it go
