"Despite my best intensions
the sun came up today
Whatever works, it's not the best
but it's not any worse

I made the call a minute ago
Who could say where it will go
Talked to myself on your answering machine
Standing in between

I don't want to write anymore
but here I am again
Sitting with myself
my shadow, and my pen

I lost my mind a while ago
fumbling for my keys
I shattered the frame, who can I blame
for this hollow peace?

And there's a hunger in my head
that I refuse to feed
It's the message that I dread
that I refuse to read

So for now I'll rest my head
and remember those long gone
In my heart, you're never dead
I offer you this song

The moon is full and bright tonight
and loving only me
She guides my pen with her light
beneath the hanging tree

Remember, my friend
when the day becomes too loud
the moon is still behind the cloud
and this is not the end

Oh this is not the end

And I don't know what will become of me
There is something more that stands in front of the night
I'll shake my cage and rattle my chains until they start to rust
and there is truly nothing left in me if I can't be...
