This Is My Wake

from by WAKE



This is my wake
these are my mistakes
a preface to the magnitude
of everlasting fate
please don't think that I
have lost my lust for life
this story's mine to tell, and I will write it down (tonight)

This endless stream of consciousness
it all began when I was young
from that moment on
I was determined to never fall asleep again

I'll open my eyes With
every new day
And I wont stop until I find my way

Out on the open seas
this vessel makes waves
the ocean swells more beautifully (today)

Under this mighty ship i built
and I'm refusing to turn back
the plan of attack
is let my pride take me as far as I can go
we'll weather the storm
and when my ship crash lands
it will take all I have to incinerate
in fear I may fade
I will burn out much brighter than the sun

At my wake
I need you to know
each step I take I calculate
but I'll follow no map today
with no courage to demonstrate

Beginning to end
from wake to wake
I know these eyes will never break
and when the end is all I have
I will hold it to my chest
no sign of regret
I'll whisper one last time the phrase that got me to this place
This is my wake
