Thorn (In My Side)

A song describing my insomnia and such...

Recording is just vocals, testing out microphone/booksie cooperation, aha. And people were sleeping so I had to be awful quiet, sorry if it got really pitchy in the higher parts and I know I got some of the words wrong :P Oops! Enjoy :)


In my side

Each night I try

To fall asleep

Counting fallen


On my pillows

I feel like no one knows

How the darkness feels

When light falls from your


Falling from grace

I can't seem to erase

The faceless days

That made me under-


It's not in my hands

Just like the Everyman

We are tied to fate

To face the Great Unknown


I've grown

Out of these ashes

Through all these passions

That burned my roots away

And still these

Thorns have stayed

And my dreams all decay

Trampled beneath

The feet of sheep,

The sheet of sleep,

Stained and


From my side

Each time I cry

There's no hope for sleep,

Or peace, or feeling


You can't seem to replace

Some of the organs lost

In the damage process

Of the thorn enlodged

(Just a) Thorn

In my side

To run and to hide,

To tell you I've lied,

Break all these ties and find

The thorn grows deep


With no place for respite

I'll fight, till death reclaims me,

Darkness maims me,

This thorn will die, if I

Must die as well
