ATTACK OF THE GREATER DAY

I want you happy in the strangest of ways.

In other words, I want to see you be brave.

It hurts so bad, but still, I’m willing to stay

On the outside, for the rest of my days.

I’ve gotta run away…

I have no other way.

I’m gonna run away.

Into the greater day.

            I’ve given up on trying to save

My reputation, and the stain on my name.

I’ve given in to the heat of the fight

And lost the promise of a “better night”.

I’ve gotta run away…

I see no other way.

I’m gonna run away…

Into the greater day...

My every effort to protect and to save

Are overshadowed, by convictions of shame.

Any attempts to express

These horrors, by name

Get drowned out, in a passionate rage;

I lost the honor of you taking my name.

I lost the peace of mind you selflessly gave.

My soul is cursed, but still I’m kneeling to pray.

Yes, I will whisper, for the rest of my days.

And if I run away,

I’ll take this all the way.

If there’s no other way…

I’ve got to run away.

I’ve gotta run away.

I see no other way.

I’m gonna run away,

Into the greater day.
