You or Me
I’ve been living in silence far too long.
Shadow creeping up behind me
It isn’t safe
To lend yourself to their shame
You’ve already shut the engine down
I’m down again, yea
You’re obviously a hell of a shot
Straight and true
You’ve already run it in the ground
You’re on your own
It’s you or me
I’ve been running in circles much too wide.
Freezing lurks inside us all
It is insane
To lead yourself into the grave
You’ve already put me in the ground
You’ve jumped the gun again
You always were a step ahead
protect your truth
You’ve already shut all engines down
You’re all alone
It’s you, this me.
Shadow creeping up behind me.
