Choke back a cry, stifle a sigh,
Sit here and watch the world go by.
Do I join the race? Do I pick up the pace?
But I'll just sit here with my hands on my face.
When I look to the sky, I see only light.
But it's just the stars saying hello to the night.
So I let the hunt consume me;
Thoughtless, I descend.
The effluent passes right through me,
The shadows catch my fall.....
So when I turn away,
Don't be angry.
I just don't want to destroy everything you've been building.
And when I walk away,
Don't come for me.
Because, dying, you'll find me
