Hanging on to nothing
Like clouds in the sky
Music in the air
Tears of goodbye
Holding on to nothing
Like fear on a dare
Rocks at the bottom
Light on a glare
The truth is unspoken
Let sleeping dogs lie
Where is your empathy
When leaving one to die
Cast doubt like stones
Remain sure of your choice
Don't loose your way
While finding your voice
When everything is gone
Nothing will remain
Tempting and trying
Yet still the same
