Thought I Knew

shit I've been through been too much
sensitive skin too thin to touch
wiped out cornered no will to fight out
plus I doubt I’d even take the right route

used up still have not learned
can’t decide if I’ve been lied to did I get burned?
life is like that no need for concern
everybody suffers it was just my turn

yet and still I’ve had my fill
so much blood spilled shit tests my will
thought I found a way around the things I feel
thought I figured out how to deal

thought I knew
what did I know?
looking for a way to get back home

hard to stand by wring my hands
try stifling tears smile hide my fear
the end is near and we all know
but no one here knows where we all go

details fade but the feeling stays
everyone says I’m in the healing stage
haven’t slept for days can’t heal like this
I’m obsessed by details that we might miss

everything floods in where to begin?
I’d walk on water but the ice is too thin
don’t fight to win fight just to breathe
fight to maintain balance in shifting seas

fight this disease? with what, my love?
when she can’t hear me through all those drugs?
a thousand hugs white paper cranes
I can stall but she’ll make the train

thought I knew
what did I know?
looking for a way to get back home
