I challenged my future to a staring contest
My eyes bore holes into the dark unknown
The balance of time has caused my unrest
So I gaze at the void until my will runs low.
Time will tell when I give up the game
Eyes bleed rivers, know they'll call me insane
But I stand unmoved, I refuse to be used
Daring my future to make the first move.
I'm stubborn, I push away the thoughts of slumber
Keep my eyes wide open and my angles covered
I can't afford blunders, the ship goes asunder
Can't miss the lightning, I'm ready for thunder.
I'm rooted in unsteadiness, poolin' in the crevices
With blood, so much of it, it's borderin' on decadence.
With sentences, words, I'll make the void bow to me
The odder me will make the even one look cowardly
I took my inhibitions and I tossed them off the balcony
I cauterized the cuts inside, I'm callin' in the calvary.
Said I'm going psycho, they should send me to the ward,
'Cause I'm battling my future with a steely-eyed sword
Power's out, shut the coward's mouth, 'cause I just ripped the cord
Now it's me who's determinin' the steps I'm taking forward
That's the writing on the wall, used my very own ink
Now my very own thoughts and the future in sync
On the bridge between my past and my future, I'm on the brink
Only one victor here, and God knows I don't blink.
