This is my most recent outing. I wrote this for my friend and me. We've both been presented with the same situation but in different scenarios. So hopefully you like it. I would also like to ask for suggestions on a title. The working title for it is "Damn Skippy" because for the first time ever I haven't been able to come up with one lol. Enjoy!

Decisions, decisions,
Confusion coming around,
My lost identity escapes me,
A dead end is now found.
The coming of age is costing
More than I can bear.
I guess this is what happens
When nothing ends up fair.

How did I stray so far?
When did I lose my mind?
These questions beg for answers
I don’t think I can find.
I’m not the man I used to be,
I’m being dragged along
Into a world that shows no hope,
A world that now is gone.

On one hand, I see reprieve
That will tear me up to shreds
Until it blows up into fury,
Pounding through my head.
On the other, I see a grave,
Our names scrawled into stone
As evidence of all that’s lost.
Such things will break my bones.

How did I stray so far?
When did I lose my mind?
These questions beg for answers
I don’t think I can find.
I’m not the man I used to be,
I’m being dragged along
Into a world that shows no hope,
A world that now is gone.

It’s not enough for me to know
Exactly what’s at stake.
I can have everything or nothing
Based on the choice I make.
I strive for everything, to keep my solace
But such things are never real.
You can’t have one come with the other.
In prayer I finally kneel.
Some people just wanna watch the world burn. Wanna join me when I take my turn to pour the gas, light the match, see your world flip upside down and drop until it's inside out?

This is a pretty nice piece. I like the imagery in the verse that starts with "In one hand, I see..." It was a good comparison and it filled up an extra verse for ya.

Also, a title suggestion, "Stray So Far", "A World That is Now Gone", "Dragged Along", I'm just stealing from your chorus, but that's how a song is named when you have no better idea. Like the first song in my sig. Hey, would you want to crit that for me? I've been looking for people to do that.
