I Need to Know
I want to know it can be over
I want to know it’s able to be done
I need to know that this can be taken on
And that the battle can be won.
I’ve searched within my heart
I’ve pondered in my soul
I look out in the distance of my life
And I have yet to see the goal
There are people all around me
In the vastness that is mankind
There must be at least one that exists
That can understand my twisted mind.
And I have not been down so long
That I have lost hope in discovering these ends
The light inside my darkness shines
Around the path as it bends.
And then I climb up to great heights
To view the battlefield below
I have no choice but to continue on
And seek out the things I need to know.
