"We all can't be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the sides and clap as they go by." "In the end, they're just more words."


If you're up there,
please listen.
If you're down there,
don't bother.
I already know
where I'll go.
If you're listening,
open your ears a bit more
cause I got a lot to say.
These words are not easy,
trust me,
they don't want to come out.
They stick like sap
onto my tongue.
I am lost.
In life, in love.
In spirit, in hope,
despair, and chaos.
Please give me a compass
of any kind, really.
I just want to find my way.
My voice is not loud,
my prayer not bold,
all I ask for
is a clear way to go.
Point me in the right direction,
show me that sign
that will get me up on my feet
and walking again.
I hope you've heard me
nice and clear.
This is the one chance I get;
my life is running out of time.
Please, if you're there,
listen to my prayer,
a prayer of the lost.
