A pen is a sword that has a shield of paper and an armor of words


I can feel the heat
I can sense the thunder
Lightning striking out the window
But do we want to exit
The door of comfort
Are we ready
To face the music
That we've been avoiding
Playing so long

So here I go
Through the tunnel
Out into the light
Will it be nice
Sunny and bright
Or will it be dark
Stuck with my fate
Do I care
Will it stop me
Because I know
There's no going back

I can feel the adrenaline
As I dive below
Will I sink
Will I float
Across the surface
Skimming
I can feel the rain
As it pounds on my shoulders
With the thunder of life above

So here I go
Through the tunnel
Out into the light
Will it be nice
Sunny and bright
Or will it be dark
Stuck with my fate
Do I care
Will it stop me
Because I know
There's no going back

Are we ready
Are we packed
Will we jump off the train
Will we die
Will we last
Or do we wanna live with this fate

So here I go
Through the tunnel
Out into the light
Will it be nice
Sunny and bright
Or will it be dark
Stuck with my fate
Do I care
Will it stop me
Because I know
There's no going back

This piece is about going out of your comfort zone, to risk it, hoping for everything to work out for the best, something we all do in life once and a while.
