Standing Tall Despite The Fall

Standing Tall Despite The Fall


Begrudging the drudgery of nine-to-five purgatory
Where repetitive Top 40 hits add insult to injury

Every day spent in penance for hearts broken at war
Cracking rocks in a quarry 'till bone and muscle go sore

Loose ends struggle to meet in the middle
Life's meaning? A poorly thought-out riddle!

Hair grizzled like granite, feet made of clay
Would-be lover back home gone astray

Connecting link with Great Spirit all rusted by dust
Fewer allies are there now left to trust

Waning hopes turn to despair around here
Yet even so—inside this chest dwells no fear!
