Scared Of Everything

Scared Of Everything

it doesn’t matter if no-one hears this song
it’s not meant for anyone else
i’ve lived alone in this world so long
i’ve forgotten how true love felt

behind this swollen smile
lives an old man crying
widower to a girl
he can’t even remember dying

what a thrill that it must be to be anything
maybe i’d know if i wasn’t scared of everything 

couldn’t tell you how much i want to care
‘cause the things i have don’t last
settled inside ‘cause outsides hard to bare
it takes a lifetime but it moves too fast

within this murky mile
treads a young man trying
an antidote with a dream
of never dying 

what a thrill that it must be to be anything
maybe i’d know if i wasn’t scared of everything

disfunction, a side effect of being me
a total and utter outsider 
but don’t lean on me and expect stability 
‘cause my name’s not even Elijah

this tender trail 
curated by a fallen king
to test even the strongest mans
deepest feelings

what a thrill that it must be to be anything
maybe i’d know if i wasn’t so scared of everything
