When i fell from grace i never realized How deep the flood was around me A man whose life was toil was like a kettle left to boil And the water left these scars on me
The chains i wore were mine, dragging me towards my fate Planned for me long ago
I played by all their rules, went to their right schools
Who was i to question?
They used to say i was nowhere man Heading down was my destiny But yesterday i swear that was Someone else not me
Here i stand at the crossroad's edge Afraid to reach out for eternity One step when i look down I see someone else, not me
I know now who i am, if only for awhile I recognize the changes I feel like i did, before the magic wore thin And the baptism of stains began
Sacrifice, the always say... is a sign of nobility But where does one draw the line in the face of injury? I'm just trying to understand
Standing here at the crossroad's edge Looking down at what i used to be A drowning man, trying to stay afloat Heavy with the past, but somehow keeping hope That there's something more that is seen But it's somewhere out of reach
So i keep looking back Looking back and i see someone else
All my life they said i was going down But i'm still standing stronger proud
And today i know, there's so much more i can be I think i finally understand
From where i stand at the crossroad's edge There's a path leading out to sea And from somewhere deep in my mind Sirens sing out loud, songs of doubt, as only they know how But one glance back reminds and i see Someone else, not me.
