The Finite Beings

Lyrics

 


Late one night I thought of all of my deeds
What worth was I to the world?
Never would follow and with no one to lead
I dissolved in the shadows
Do I ever know my reasons?
Do I ever know my cause?

To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To numb the pain from the thorns in my side
To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To have a place to hide…until it subsides

Deep inside I felt this hold over me
The battle over my soul
Both sides determined and striving to succeed
I dissolved in the shadows
What on earth am I here for?
Do I even know the rules?

To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To numb the pain from the thorns in my side
To keep safe from the ravages of the savages
To have a place to hide…until it subsides

The problem with hiding in the shadows
Is that when the light comes I don’t know where to go
I’m so used to the darkness I forgot what it is to see
This beautiful creation and all it offers me
This is for all of us
This is for all of us
