Verse 1

This is where I stand,

Carrying in the palm of my hands,

Mistakes rolled up in dozen stacks,

Things that I wish I could take back.

Played it out again in my head,

All the things I wish I had said,

All the ways I had lost myself-

I'm drowning in guilt, someone help.

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.

Verse 2

This is where I stand,

My once pure soul completely tanned,

My faith in humanity stirred,

My heart decked with a hundred scars.

How do I get out of this mess?

How to forgive my recklessness?

How to regain my innocence?

My blind beliefs, my colored lens?

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.

Bridge

But this is not where I will stay.

I will surely find my way.

But till I reach that blinding day….

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.

Chorus

This is where I stand,

Sunk to the neck in quicksand,

So far away from what I had planned,

This is where I stand.
