The night, it settles itself before me
And I don’t know where to run
And I don’t think that I can survive another

In a momentary weakness
Unbeknownst to all the world
I have simply lost my will to live
Simply lost myself

Like a puppeteer, I watch them dance around me
Straws of hopeful dreams, filling up their heads
Little did I know, about the fear that binds me
Would I have been better off a puppet instead
I can no longer see the forest for the trees
Don't know why anyone would want to follow me
I stand upon a broken tower of shattered glass
I should have known that this was never meant to last

I don't know, I don't know what else to do
And I don't know if there's anything worth doing
Where do I find the strength to pull me through
Don't think I can find the courage to begin
Am I simply a careless puppeteer
Messing up the steps of another show I've ruined
Or am I just a puppet on display destined to live out my days attached to strings

Swaying on my feet
I welcome the defeat
And I just want to move on
And I’ve played this part too long

Dancing on display
Puppets in a play
But I know all this will end
We are tied to this my friend
Pull the strings try to break free
After all you’ll follow me


from World of Conversation, released March 28, 2019
