A Better Game

Sunlight is fading

As the rain sets in

Streetlights cut the dark sky

Wake up on the sidewalk again

I’ve been waiting on the corner

To see the world bend

Trying to generate a way to play a better game

Because if it’s all same I ain’t going to figure it out


Neon in my eyes

Don’t know how long

Shattered glass in a paper bag

Next to a man gone wrong

Pavement cuts my skin

As I drag myself along

Try to stay hazy for the day to keep the head at bay

Because if my mind’s astray then maybe I can get the hell out


People get inspired by the confidence they felt

From all the lessons kept for themselves

But I’m bound to reminders of the pain that’s been dealt

And what a tragedy I tend to be and where the empty space could lead


So let the dogs pour down

Break the umbrella in two

Water cleanses muddy souls

I want to feel that too

But I can smell the old coat

Of a man I once knew

Now I’m praying for the rain to wash the scent away

Because if it all remains then I’ll never get myself out

Trying to generate a way to play a better game

Because if it’s all same I ain’t going to figure it out
