It seems that all these vacant posts are occupied by holy ghosts
Amen, Amen.
And everywhere I turn I spy the very shadow made by my
Own sin, my sins.

Broken hearts and hardwood floors;
We get what we settle for.
Dreams that die on distant shores;
We get what we settle for

Body tired, soul is worse,
And every move I make just hurts
Within, within.
Landmines that we thought were gone
Still explode when stepped upon;
There’s no end, no end.
These ears have heard it all before,
And no one truly wins in war.

Nothing’s sacred, nothing’s sure.
Nothing matters anymore.
