I had a lot of feelings of self doubt, and depression after Two Sly Deuce ended. I put them into lyrics. I really like the pop-metal feel of this song, since I don't usually write things like this. As always, there are a couple of weird twists and turns chord wise, and probably too many harmonies. The verse riff is so much fun to play, and the solo is weird and neat.


By Derrick Faith

Mourning the loss of an
Intangible creation
And I go for some sleep
Too many cigarettes protecting
You and your feelings
While wishing away regret

The mercy killing of a life that can't grow
Nine years hits so hard
Will you still sing to me?
Self preservation of my heart it still wants to
Give some more
But it can't seem to find the words

Where do I go
Nowhere feels like home

I hit the sidewalk with a new phase of intent
It's my purpose
But it feels like no one else
Could give a shit
And I've been trying so hard
Just to meet you on the other side
But it does seem to get any better

Than the man that I was
How many years have I been gone
While I was chasing a dream
I used to fall in love with all the words you wrote
Now I'd give them all away for some peace

Where do I go now
I've torn down my only home now

A bitter taste of what was never not now,
Not ever, it's getting better than the misery
That I'm left with
And the guilt of trying so much just to make it something worthwhile
So I can let go of it

Will you let me sing some more?
And tell me how much it meant to you
