Behind me are my footsteps
History left untold
The ribbon of my story
Of hearts caring and cold

Behind me are my failures
The times I lost the war
The times I couldn't take the world
The times of bereft lore

Behind me are the stories
Of happy yesterdays
The well-earned rights, the greatest nights
Without a price to pay

Behind me is loneliness
Abandonment and hate
Punching walls and ending calls
And tears for untold fate

Behind me stands my enemies
The foes of poison lies
The ones who tried to kill my hopes
But failed with every try

Beside me are my mentors
The ones of guiding hearts
Flesh and bone or metronome
We can't be torn apart

Before me is my future
And unknown road to walk
In my pocket is the key
To open up the lock

Behind me are my footsteps
On a path I've walked before
One foot steps in front of the last
Just ten thousand steps more
