HAVEN OF CARDS
I thought I was standing on the precipice Of emerging at last from the dark Chomping at the bit to celebrate Cloistered in a haven made out of cards I see now that I was blithe and callous Never looked down 'cause I went through life unbalanced The reckoning Has come for me My reckoning For all to see I will not languish for eternity Writhing in Sisyphean agony I feel the reckoning take hold of me How long was I living in disguise as a Con man selling lies to my heart Before the meteors came falling down Toppling my haven of cards I see now that I was blithe and callous Never looked down 'cause I went through life unbalanced I always thought that I was destined for something more But I'm stuck in reverse, retreating from the shore I see the cards that built my haven strewn across the floor Broken dreams line the walls of my mind's corridors The reckoning Has come for me My reckoning, for all to see It's beckoning Solemnly Let this reckoning now set me free I am finally ready to submit to its incumbency The reckoning arrives at once to bring me to my knees I embrace the reckoning I embrace the cleansing I embrace the reckoning I am through pretending The reckoning Has come for me My reckoning, for all to see It's beckoning Solemnly Let this reckoning now set me free I was standing on the precipice I was emerging from the dark But all my pride and sloth and selfishness Toppled my haven of cards
