World On Fire…

Have you ever just tried to live your own life the way that needs to be lived and not the way you wanted? Gone through things that needed to be done but not the way you wished for it to go? I guess somewhere along the line we all will have to do that. Do the things we need to do to survive rather than the what we imagined we’d be doing when we’re young.

Kinda sad when you think about it.

Then again, sometimes…just sometimes, life gives you the things you need to pursue the things you want more than anything else. Layer upon layer of things that need to be done, things needed to be fixed or restored in order for you to have nothing left but your goal ahead of you.

I don’t know. I always believed that happens for some reason.

Where do you think I got this much faith and optimism from?

You just know this conversation is leading somewhere, so I’ll show you anyway.

Hearts are worn in these dark ages.
You’re not alone in this story’s pages.
Night has fallen amongst the living and the dying.
And I try to hold it in, yeah I try to hold it in.

The worlds on fire and.
It’s more than I can handle.
I dive into the water.
I try to pull my ship.
I try to bring more.
More than I can handle.
Bring it to the table.
Bring what I am able.

I watch the heavens and I find a calling.
Something I can do to change this moment.
Stay close to me while the sky is falling.
Don’t wanna be left alone, don’t wanna be alone.

Hearts break, hearts mend.
Love still hurts.
Visions clash, planes crash.
Still there’s talk of.
Saving souls, still the cold.
Is closing in on us

We part the veil on Archille’s sun.
Stray from the straight line on this short run.
The more we take, the less we become.
A fortune of one that means less for some.

Just when I needed to believe in something the most, life just happens to drop something by random chance. Maybe it’s me trying to interpret it the way I want to see it. Maybe it’s not, but the literal meaning for this song is there anyway. After all…it could be said that it’s a nudge to what I’m supposed to be doing in my life right now. For what I desire…

For what I need to look at and do.

If there is a reason for me to keep pushing.

This would be it.

The reminder of why I survive.

And why I should keep living.
