Bleed Along the Way

I hope you'll excuse the intrusion
A soul in a chamber tonight
Like an unassuming mercenary
Still the only one in sight

I'm getting' used to keeping may mouth shut
Carryin' a heavy load
The time has come for me to slide again
Really like to stay but I gotta go

Sparkle horizon
A mirror of my fate
But I'm blazin' a trail
As I bleed along the way

Trying to capture the moment
Holding it up to the light
Hatch a scheme-redundant dream
Stretch so thin when you pull it tight

Lyin' at the edge of the table

One in a million as best
Laugh and cry and humble pie
I feel too wicked to wane rest

Sparkle horizon
A mirror of my fate
Bu I'm blazin' a trail
As I bleed along the way

I'm gettin' good a keeping my mouth shut
Carryin' a heavy load
Time has come for me to slide again
Really like to stay but I got to go
Really like to stay but I got to go
Bleed along the way but I got to go
Bleed along the way but I got to go
Got to go
Got to go
Got to go
