lyrics

And I'll find it oh, yes I will. I'll find over the very next hill. I'll fight until there's no air to breath. Until I have no more blood to bleed.

I am a visitor, I am unnatural. Not a fixed figure of the scenery. A wilted red rose in the greenery.

I am uncomfortable, I've been so gullible. Not a big pill for me to swallow. Give a good tap and you'll see I'm hollow, here.

The words that I wrote are the ones I've never spoke. Not exactly my strongest suit, conveying the message I have for you.

I have sometimes thought of a place where the pen is lost and all there is is what you hear. I wish so bad to bring you here.

But I'll find it oh, yes I will. I'll find it over the very next hill. I'll fight till there's no more air to breath. Until I have no more blood to bleed. I can feel it now, its so close. Even though I am on the ropes. But I'll fight till there's no more air to breath, until I have no more blood to bleed.

I am a veteran, though I am wavering. The bright golden rays illuminate the soft smooth curves of your face.

I am a wanderer, stranded upon this earth. Looking for a chance at a warm safe place. One that is stable and unwilling to fade.
