As the Pain Shapes My Path

I’m not done with my damage yet

I’ve got a few more rounds to take

As the pain shapes my path

I’ve got a faith I can’t shake

I’m gonna miss one bit of pain

Before I sleep and then wake

Don’t Wear Your Damage As Blame

Don’t wear your damage

As blame

But as a life lived

Too close to the sun

Exhibit your pain like art

Let no two joys be the same
