CHECK OUT THE VIDEO ON YOU TUBE!

In the dark and the stillness of the night 
I stand my trial, I stand my trial; 
The difference 'tween what's wrong and what is right 
Is but one turn of the dial. 
Time hovers by the wall 
Waiting on me to fall, 
Go meet my kingdom come; 
Where I will stand & face the truth  
One thing I must do, 'cause I don't run.
 
She was like a spirit in the moonlight 
So alive, a firefly;
Her innocence it burned so bright 
But I was in denial. 
I found what it takes to take a life 
Run the sharp edge of the knife 
Across my thumb; 
Desire spreading like a stain 
The hurt, now the pain won't be undone. 

There’s a light, the brief crescent, of a falling star;
Never more to grace the heavens, leaving just a scar
Straight across my heart …

In the dark and the stillness of the night 
I stand my trial, I stand my trial; 
The difference 'tween what's wrong and what is right 
Is but one turn of the dial. 
Now I walk this this road alone, 
Kicking every other stone 
Watch them skip and run; 
And with the passing of each mile
My exile has begun.
