Track Name: Flies At Night
Why didn't I think twice
It's zapping like flies at night
Just a worked up kid yeah
I'm Always making time to fight

You scream hesitation
That I can't take in
How am I so blind

Things I still believe in
They lack clear reason
Episodes unwind

Look in my eyes as I say
Eat humble pie of rotten words

Trying to keep me at bay
I always hit you where it hurts

I know that you're trying to speak
But when you talk I'm tuning out

In my shadow, you stand weak
Wheel of misfortune and self-doubt

To know that,
There are words
I wish I'd never said

But stuck to me like a gun
As the things
flow from my head

A certain sadness is gone
Killing hope
like disease so rife

Changes just too late
Now found that
She's the essence of my life

Look in my eyes as I say
Eat humble pie of rotten words

Trying to keep me at bay
I always hit you where it hurts

I know that you're trying to speak
But when you talk I'm tuning out

In my shadow, you stand weak
Wheel of misfortune and self-doubt
