lyrics

you know you days are fading and its time for your candle light to shine
but the path you came here by is over grown with weed and with vines
there’s no use goin back no one to take the blame
you gotta forge ahead and leave behind your shame
your past it lays in waiting with each flicker of your flame
you know the ones you love will all be gone in their due time
so hold your next of kin so close there’s almost no warning signs
there’s no use splitting hairs when your bell chimes come to claim
cause you chased your whole life for false fortune and fame
your deathbed lays in waiting with each flicker of your flame
you know you’re lonely when midnight shadows are your best friends
you embrace them for their empty strength over and over again
there’s no use turning coat if life is but a game
your (re)semblance she’s a faithless reckless fickle dame
your heartache lays waiting with each flicker of your flame

you know your ways are weary and a needed change is at hand
you can’t rest your finger on it but each moment’s lost in a grain of sand
there’s no use facing facts when truth is what you fain
so keep your head laid low like walking in the rain
your vanity lays waiting with each flicker of your flame

you know your rules of thought are wrought in lust and in greed
there seems to be a nightmarish dream played out just for your needs
there’s no use hunting ghosts through broken window-panes
so take your fear and anger and cast them to the drain
your revival lays in waiting with each flicker of your flame

you know all lessons learned once earned were burned in the past
spurred on by agitators defending parades of outcasts
there’s no use restraining what just can’t be chained
when you’ve got nothing to lose you have everything to gain
your freedom lays in waiting with each flicker of your flame

you know your troubles and trials will leave you with one simple choice
to let the darkness seep within which will silence your only voice
or push away the pain and touch to turn the page
chase the light thats dawning upon your coming days
your future lays in waiting with each flicker of your flame

about

Kory Quinn Houston, Texas

A revelation! The steady pendulum of a land oil rig. He is tapped inspiration. Swinging twixt misery & pride. With uncanny awareness, he knows the exact point where two disparate paradigms collide. He speaks of our reliance on fossil fuels, corrupt political leaders, and fear. The perfect rallying cry for humanity from the heart of a working man. ... more
