Saving the world is what saves me
A reason that forgave me
A power that tumbled down
An anchorage in the town
A master plan I couldn’t see
But that always trusted me
Even when I couldn’t trust myself
I put my faith in something else
To guide me out and home
My reason is not alone
The only thing to march the tide
Of keeping myself alive
When the dragons haunt the halls
In windowpanes and freefalls
In doorslams and perfect thunder
In tidal waves and in going under
And when the overpass will launch
My character will kill the paunch
That has kept me holding back
The years in which I lack
The people in which I live
Have died and gone, I do forgive
