  13. 13. The selfish they’re all standing in line... Faithing and hoping to buy themselves time. Me, I figure as each breath goes by, I only own my mind. The north is to south what the clock is to time. There's east and there's west and there's everywhere life. I know I was born and I know that I’ll die. The in between is mine. I am mine. And the feeling it gets left behind... All the innocence lost at one time... Significant behind the eyes, there’s no need to hide. We're safe tonight. I am Mine
  14. 14. The ocean is full cause everyone's crying, The full moon is looking for friends at high tide. The sorrow grows bigger when the sorrow’s denied. I only know my mind. I am mine. And the meaning it gets left behind... All the innocence lost at one time. Significant behind the eyes, there’s no need to hide... We're safe tonight. And the feelings they get left behind... All the innocence broken with lies. Significant between the lines, we may need to hide. And the meanings they get left behind... All the innocence lost at one time. We're all different behind the eyes, there’s no need to hide.
  15. 15. Thoughts?
