SWINGING RED


SWINGING RED

S.JENSEN (C)2018

FIGHTING CONSTANTLY

ONE FOR SANITY

ONE FOR ALL

TO LEAVE THE WALLS

THAT MAKE US ALL BLEED

ONE WAY OR ANOTHER

BOUND BY THAT

WHICH LEAVES ME

CRYING

SO SOAKED IN DEEP

FOUGHT AS LONG

AS ONE COULD

STILL I SIGH NOW

KNOW NOT WHAT

ELSE TO DO

STAY HERE

TO LIVE

FOR WHAT

TO SEE ALL I

LOVE FALL

TRIED HARD

STILL TRY WHEN

AGAINST ALL ODDS

HANDS BREAK

THROUGH

THEN RIPPED

RIGHT BACK

KNOW IF I COULD

WITH BAD LEG

AND ALL

I WOULD WALK

ZILLIONS OF MILES

IF ONLY COULD

KEEP TRYING

SEEMS SO LOST

NOW

FALL BACK

SHOUTING

TO NOTHING BUT AIR

CRYING OUT LOUD

SORRY

BEYOND SORRY

I DIDN'T KNOW

WHAT I KNOW NOW

ITS ALL A BLUR

WIRLWIND

TO KEEP SANE

SNOW FALLS

THICK

FOUGHT

TO KEEP

ROOF

FOUGHT

TO KEEP

SANE

FOUGHT

ALL ODDS

TO BE ME

TO MAKE

THEM ALL

LEAVE ME

FROM INSIDE

OUT

NOT ENOUGH

ENERGY

IN THESE HANDS

LEFT

BREAK FREE

AND THEN DIE

BREAK FREE

THEN LIVE

I SEE RED

I CRY

NOT YOUR ENEMY

I FIGHT NOT YOU

TRIED SO TRIED

ABOVE AND BELOW

STILL DIDN'T

GET FAR

JUST TOO GOOD

FOR MY OWN GOOD

END TO BEGIN

FIGHT TO LIVE

STUCK AND GONE

JUST SIMPLY

GONE

SIGH

TOO MANY GONE

OH THE WALLS

HAVE PINNED EYES

SIT AND CRY

SO IMPOSSIBLE

YET I TRY

SIGH

STUCK IN LIMBO

LIKE SNOW TO BRANCHES

THICK AND WHITE

AS DARKNESS

IS EVERYWHERE

AND THE LIGHT

ALL SO DIM

YET ITS NOT OUT

BLINKING BUT

NOT OUT

TO BELIEVE

TO ACT

TO TRY

TO SAVE

ALL SEEMS

SO LOST

FOUGHT TO LIVE

FOUGHT TO STAY

FOUGHT TO BE

KNOWING

ONE DAY

I TOO WILL BE GONE

SO GONE

ONE ONLY GETS

SO FAR WHEN

NO MEANS

TO CHANGE

A FATE

YET SO TRIED

WHAT TO DO

WHEN SO GONE

ALL ALONE

CAN'T CRY

NO MORE

SO I SIGH.
