"Prologue"

[Verse 1: Bodi]
I’m getting older and I hate it
Life’s a game, and I’ve already played it
And I’ve debated throwing in the towel
To a fate already written to a reaper on the prowl, but
I can’t close my eyelids
Without faces that allowed me to write this
Looking back with a smile and a nod
And the silhouettes of you, my reminders of God
And no question, the reflection I see’s
Made up of you, there’s no me
Without a history of loss and sacrifice
Met with a strength that defies any afterlife
And that’s running through my veins
One day I will be the same
Fade as a piece of the puzzle
Until then smile in the beautiful struggle…


[Verse 2: Bodi]
When I was little I would die to grow up
Now here we are and I’m begging it to slow up
Watch dreams and reality collide
Spend time picking up the pieces of this sky
Try to reconcile what I become
With what I hoped I’d be when the journey begun
And know I’m passing through not lasting to forever, true
To find a way to happiness it’s better late than never, you
Don’t know what you got til it’s gone
Sometimes miss right til you meet wrong
But I can read the past in my palm
And find solace in the storm before the calm
Nose to the grindstone until I’ve grown breathless
Shoulder to the wheel of diameter endless
The fight song rings the sweet sound
So I’m lifting up my voice with the darkness falling

[Hook: Lotte Kestner]
Down, down, down
I’m never falling
I’m never falling
Down,down,down

[Verse 3: Bodi]
I'm still in love with my best ex-girlfriend
Reverends telling how a bloody mess world ends
Past loves getting different last names
Mapped goals, now a film's black frame
Roll the credits, but never get to edit out
The ugly parts
And rusted hearts
And stumble starts
This struggle sparks
A thunderous march, an ending unknown
Fist to the heavens, sending up a poem
Grandpa’s on his death bed, grandma’s fighting tears
Hands held recalling all the best of hiding years
Dad’s hair’s gray, mom’s mind’s slipping
See each other once or twice a year and time’s missing
And the people that I know become the people that I knew
Because the feeble life we drew upon the sky is passing through
Testament to the magic found
In the pulling of the tide til the waves come crashing down

[Hook]

[Bridge: Lotte Kestner]
If that doesn't wind you up
The road isn't long enough
And that's what's running through my veins
One day, I will be the same

[Verse 4: Bodi]
Cody just call and told me Mike died
I can hardly see through my watercolor eyes
He inspired me since I learned to write
Until my ink dries he will always be a guide
At 25 try to cope with the fact
As the days pass more I love ain't coming back
That's the come and go and being caught in undertow
From the drop into this show to the final slumber, so
It's time to go always sooner than expected
There's not a part that will ever be perfected
Still we march with our hands, connected
Self in the iris of everyone else reflected
- and tested always
But all waves reach the shore
Return to the source from where we began
Land on our feet, higher we stand now
Welcome to the rise and the fall
And the journey through the gallows to the hallowed winding halls
And all along the story through the darkness
The crowning glory and the name on the park bench
It's a tale of triumphs and trials
Courage for the fear and tears with the smiles
And miles to go before I sleep
And miles to go before I…sleep

[Bridge 2: Lotte Kestner]
The one thing I can say about
The way the time runs out
Not gonna save my thoughts, I'm
I'm gonna say them now
The things I want to see
The ones I care about
The way I feel for you
I'd love to spell it out
The memories of every
One who has led me here
The things I carry with me
Aren't going anywhere
