From the recording Losing This War

Lyrics

Tryna keep it all together
Though my days are empty
My days are numbered
I hear sirens in my slumber

I'm scared to sleep my pulse races I startle awake at night
But don't want to wake, go back to death's cousin grasp
I'm trapped under these dark clouds crippled by despair
The fear wraps around your neck and seeps your air

I'm losing this war
Losing this war

I'm losing this war I'm sorry
I thought I'd be somewhere by now
That I'd be the man you imagined
Well I got nothing to show
I'm losing this war I'm sorry

We got dressed for Halloween
We smiled for a picture
What I won't let them see
A hint of gloom through my teeth
The universe hangs on my shoulders I fall right to my knees
I dig for inner resolve and struggle to my feet
Life's a burden, I'm knocked on my back and the cycle repeats
A shameful man standing alone defending his broken dreams

I'm losing this war
Losing this war

I'm losing this war I'm sorry
I thought I'd be somewhere by now
That I'd be the man you imagined
Well I got nothing to show
I'm losing this war I'm sorry

I let you down
I let you down

I promised you I'd make it through
But I let you down
I want to tell you I won the war
But I let you down

I'm sorry
