I wrote this, in 2008. It's part of my 3rd lyric set, Memories Of The Future.

(Chorus)

Always, waiting, for, a sign, of, guidance.

Just, when, I, get, closer, my, faith, withdraws.

Trying to, stand, tall, on, the edge, about, to fall.

I, choke, from, the pressure, of, my, own, walls.

The burning, of, my, soul, is, all, I, feel.

Being, patient, kills. (and, it, always will)

 

(Verse 1)

Gripping, tightly, to myself, from, contemplation.

I'm, feeling, the world, around, me, blurring, from, frustration.

Trying to, overcome, my, weakness, looking, for, a glimmer, of, hope.

When, all, of, my, self-control, explodes.

 

(Verse 2)

It feels, like I'm, caught, in, the middle, of, a storm.

I, try to, resist, the constant, force, but, I, seem to, lose, my, fixation.

When, my, only, purpose, starts, to leave, I'm, surrounded, by, devastation.

And, the cycle, just, repeats, another, piece, of, me, to delete.

 

(Chorus)

Always, waiting, for, a sign, of, guidance.

Just, when, I, get, closer, my, faith, withdraws.

Trying to, stand, tall, on, the edge, about, to fall.

I, choke, from, the pressure, of, my, own, walls.

The burning, of, my, soul, is, all, I, feel.

Being, patient, kills. (and, it, always will)

 

(Bridge)

They, say, patience, is, virtuous, but, those, words, mean, very, few.

I’m, trying to, hold, on, but, my, perseverance, is, all, gone.

My, durability, is, beginning, to slip, I, can’t afford to, lose, my, grip.

 

(Chorus 2)

Always, waiting, for, a sign, of, guidance.

Just, when, I, get, closer, my, faith, withdraws.

Trying to, stand, tall, on, the edge, about, to fall.

I, choke, from, the pressure, of, my, own, walls.

The burning, of, my, soul, is, all, I, feel.

Being, patient, kills. (being, patient, kills)

And, it, always will. (being, patient, kills)

The burning, of, my, soul, is, all, I, feel, all, I, feel. (all, I, feel)
