These fragments I hold.
They shatter when the skin rips to the bone.
I've been searching for everything you've taken from me.
I'm out of step with the world,
Can't keep my composure from going under your waves.
But my past has left me calloused,
My body is withered and damaged
My spirit lives on searching for the beauty in this life
To repair these broken bones.
Let the waves settle and I'll get back up
There's more to life than drowning yourself in defeat.
Won't let you get the best of me.
But I'm still searching for the beauty in this life
To repair these broken bones
Or watch myself fade
And I know I'll never measure up to the man that you need me to be
I spend my days in a slow decay, fading away
I live this life of modern pain
