    Just Trying To Find My Way

    We walk in circles
    Fighting against the tides
    Just trying to find our way
    But everything's working against us
    And nothing stays the same
    The world keeps on turning
    And our joy fades away
    The storms are pressing down
    And our foundations are shaking
    Only so much time
    Until this whole world crashes down

    I thought I knew the way
    I thought I knew who I was
    But the cracks in these walls are spreading
    And the glass in the window panes are breaking
    The winds are beating against me
    Blowing us away
    I can't stay on my feet
    I'm fighting just to stay alive another day

    I'm gasping for air
    Because I'm drowning under these waters
    My life is up in flames
    And the ashes flutter across the waves
    Taunting me and forcing me
    To relive every agonizing day
    Pain is eating me alive
    And I don't know how to breathe
    I've lost the will to live
    I've lost the reason to be

    We walk in circles
    Fighting against the tides
    Just trying to find our way
    But everything's working against us
    And it's impossible to stay
    Trapped in a cycle
    Can't get out of these four walls
    No windows to hold our dreams
    No stories to guide our hopes
    No, we're walking in circles
    Fighting desperately against the tides
    We're just trying to find our way, but no,
    Everything's working against us
    And nothing stays the same
    How can we keep breathing
    Just to survive another day
    To walk another circle
    And never reach the end
    Everything working against us
    And I'm tired of fighting the tides
    I'm tired of seeing the same three trees
    I'm tired of looking at these four walls
    And never making it anywhere
    Stuck walking in circles
    And fighting against the tides
    I just want to find my way
    So why is everything working against us
    Why does nothing stay the same
    Why does the world keep on turning
    Why does our joy fade away
    The storms tear me down
    And I'm just trying to find my way
