The Loneliness of a Lone Tower Guard

Gray fences, diamond wire, so cold up here
of course I knew it was good to be a good person (easier at least)
the lowliness of a lone tower guard
watching the trains come in
what kind of life is this anyway?

his sea cold eyes
Abandon All Hope Ye Who Enter Here
or better yet give up and give up the ghost
so I don't have to
his seacold eyes that surveyed the bay

he's seen the writing on the wall
he's waiting for the rain to fall
he's seen the writing on the wall
he's seen the writing on the wall
he's seen his writing on the wall
he's seen the writing on the wall
he's seen the writing on the wall
he's seen the writing on the wall

Proudest words? Upon my empire the sun never sets
Empire ant. Empire falls.

Stop trying to make me a tragic hero, damn it
I don't want to be and you can't make me
be

Goddammit.
