lyrics

I've seen that face
Know those eyes
Different yet the same
Walk on... (He has no aim)
Full of age
Wrought with pain

He burns so bright
Walks so tall
Hollow of soul
Poor soul.. (He shows no care)
Now I know the boy is home

He walks this way
Through the dirt
Eyes shine dismay
Come in... (why wonder)
Lay you down
Take your stress away

And now he breathes much easier
Furrowed face kissed by dawn
He'd love to learn his own way down
No repose to call his own

He stirs distracted
Waiting on petty words
That he once heard
He lies for safety
Guarding his precious charms
With a wilful art

In milky light
His glass touched gaze
The scratches weep

For a time it slept
His hungry age
The scratches deep

Look, look at me
From behind your outlaw fantasy
Please just speak with me
lay your silver tongue to waste
Leave, go in arrogance
Blemished skin hides what might have been
Brace for a brand new day
Sigh and fit the mask so heavy
