never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game


where's the uncle i used to know?
you're not the same
it clearly shows
you are dying everyday
but
the sunshine never leaves your face
happier then me on a good day

vaccums working inside
sucking out the life
a leech with an over bite

internal chicken pox
playing tag with your organs
i'm already picking the outfit for your funeral
but
you're smiling well

They say you're a hopeless case
i think they're wrong
you're still fighting
you're alive
it's better then having to say goodbye

if the light should ever leave your face
i've got a flashlight to lead the way
to the person that i used to i've already said goodbye

I hope one day
the tubes and wires will go away
hospitals will fade to grey

like the birds way up high
you'll sprout your wings
to heaven you'll fly away
with your light leading you all the way
