no solace

running for the future
fragmented breathing
stumble and falter
heart in your ears
feet fall like hammers
shadows fall from streetlights
like murmurs of the dead

and you can't find silence
and you can't find peace
and you have no solace
cause the race is in your head

burning the daylight
chasing the seconds
fleeing the hours
forgetting to look
where your steps lead
lies that laugh at truth
and mock the living

and you can't find silence
and you can't find peace
and you have no solace
cause your days blur with dreaming

alarm cries murder
shatters the faith
you hold in oblivion
breaks the morning
blue and gold but yours is gray
the melody of daylight
keeps passing on by

and you can't find silence
and you can't find peace
and you have no solace
cause this is not your life . . .
