Song by the band in my head

Verse:
The road is long and the outcome uncertain
Hope or a monster await behind the curtain
Faltering steps trudge through the night
Betting everything that they're wrong and he's right
 
Pre-Chorus:
Smallest journey seems impossibly long
Seems so easy for it all to go wrong
 
Verse:
Endless mile forward, two miles back
A helpless Quasimodo on the way to the rack
Towns people laughing as he passes by,
Everything changed in the blink of an eye
 
Pre-Chorus:
Smallest journey seems impossibly long
Seems so easy for it all to go wrong
 
Chorus:
Into the dark the blind man sails alone
The king of uncertain on his lonely throne
Fights the daily war to not give in to fear
Another hour over, another day, then a year
 
Verse:
Alone with long odds, locked in a cage
The writer struggles to pen a new page
Another battle joined, another hill to climb,
Just a shadow living on borrowed time
 
 
Pre-Chorus:
Smallest journey seems impossibly long
Seems so easy for it all to go wrong
 
Chorus:
Into the dark the blind man sails alone
The king of uncertain on his lonely throne
Fights the daily war to not give in to fear
Another hour over, another day, then a year, 
 
END
