lyrics

Such thin skin covers empty eyes
But it's a hundred pound blanket that's hiding the light
Such dry lips sealed, smothering empty cries
But as long as he's asleep, it seems alright
All night he's awake, running, pumping the weights
Getting stronger, as he grows weak...upping the stakes
Maybe his new strength will better his fate
But for now it seems there's just more self to hate
Self to degrade...inner conflicts rage
Life's got him feeling trapped in a convict's cage
Somewhere he turned the switch off or maybe just died
But right now all he's got left is pride
He left his bride before they said "I do"
He kept inside that he likes guys, too
What's left to do? He doesn't have a clue
So he keeps on sleeping until the day is through

Breathe another breath...step another step
Do it in the face of the nights you wept
Breathe another breath...step another step
Be strong
Breathe another breath...step another step
Do it in the face of the days you slept
Breathe another breath...step another step
Keep on

She's a young mom with a young one
Her man is not the father, but the father is gone
All she wants is the best for her toddler son
So deals with the stress, as step-father runs
Right over her heart...night after night
Almost right from the start, it was fight after fight
Too small to compete, he was twice her height
So she would concede, as he stole her right
To control her life...raping his own wife
Physical and verbal abuse...her plight
How long would is go on? How long would it take?
How long would she cry dry tears every day?
Looking strong...feeling fake...too long without a break
Her song was upbeat so she could stay awake
Decisions to make...she would have to dig deep
Somehow find the strength to get up and leave

The sky will be blue again
You will be you again
Truth will be true again
Keep on
The sky will be blue again
You will be you again
Truth will be true again
Be strong
