When I fell from grace I never realized How deep the flood was around me A man whose life was toil was like a kettle left to boil And the water left these scars on me
The chains I wore were mine, dragging me towards my fate Planned for me long ago
I played by all their rules, went to their right schools
Who was I to question?
They used to say I was nowhere man Heading down was my destiny But yesterday I swear that was Someone Else not me
Here I stand at the crossroad's edge Afraid to reach out for eternity One step when I look down I see someone else, not me
I know now who I am, if only for awhile I recognize the changes I feel like I did, before the magic wore thin And the baptism of stains began
Sacrifice, the always say... is a sign of nobility But where does one draw the line in the face of injury? I'm just trying to understand
Standing here at the crossroad's edge Looking down at what I used to be A drowning man, trying to stay afloat Heavy with the past, but somehow keeping hope That there's something more that is seen But it's somewhere out of reach
So I keep looking back Looking back and I see someone else
All my life they said I was going down But I'm still standing stronger proud
And today I know, there's so much more I can be I think I finally understand
From where I stand at the crossroad's edge There's a path leading out to sea And from somewhere deep in my mind Sirens sing out loud, songs of doubt, as only they know how But one glance back reminds and I see Someone Else, not me.
