I don’t wanna start with goodbye
Don’t want to end in silence
I don’t wanna be pushed aside
Anger is blind defiance
There’s a price to feel safe
No loss is comforting
I waste all I’ve worked for
Waiting for this phone to ring
Here’s my last try to find you

When she lies I feel the cold regret that’s wasted all my youth
Deep blue eyes remind me how my view is lacking truth
Courage dies inside the best of men when old bleeds into new
Others try but there’s no hope of me denying you
Denying you

I’ve opened my eyes for the first time
I’m starting to see why a mind needs pain
Grasping for something familiar
Recreating the past with no refrain
I pass the best; take what’s left
The speechless void is such a damning test
A conscious track is what I lack
I can’t go on 'cause I keep looking back
Here’s my last try to find you

And there’s no right reason to keep bleeding
And it’s so unkind to expect more time
And it just ain’t fair when she sits with a stare
There’s nothing to do 'cause I can’t even move
And there’s nothing to say, I can’t look away
I feel my regret before the day is spent
Denying you


from Mestizo, released May 16, 2009
