This Soul of Mine

It wakes me up in the dead of darkness,

when the world is quiet.

It rattles inside me, shaking my bones, 

it won't ever let me be. 

I can't control it, I can't define it,

and it

keeps me red-eyed,

keeps me tongue-tied,

keeps me locked-up crazy,

but it keeps me alive,

this soul of mine.

 

It always wants more and can't ever settle.

It holds its body to too high a standard,

and doesn't always see its worth.

I can't mend it, I can't fix it,

but it

drives me forward,

drives me upward,

drives me to insanity,

and it keeps me alive,

this soul of mine.
