all i wants to leave this life behind
the fabric of our genes is some design
as much as i am here i've been away
look again, it's clear i've been
approaching life as one who cannot stay

leave me where i am tonight
tomorrow brings a different light
all of the things that i 've wanted to do
are right where i left them
faces of truth

turning dreams over
i'm trashing my mind
i'm leaving myself for the one left behind
i'm traveling in circles
moving in a line
i'm following faces that used to be mine

all i needs tomorrow night
darkness makes me lose sight
i only hear voices, i never see wide
absent minded lives with fear inside
take some time just to shorten my stride
light another match just to start another fire
i'm being crushed under weight i can't see
opposing the forces that once were driving me

turning through pages that burn as i read
i'd enjoy the story more if the author wasn't me
facing my demons
living as i'd planned
forge another story on the day that once began

what does that even mean...?

I would have preferred "approaching life as one who can not stay".

The first stanza didn't really click with me either but the second and third were good. The third really hit me. It was awesome.

The "all I need's tomorrow night...etc...that once were driving me"
The whold thing there let the rest down. The first two lines of the last stanza were really cool though.

Nice.
