I've spent far too long lamenting
What I am, what we are,
A pair of shattered misfits
Broken together as we struggle.
I've been a madman,
Screaming with laughter,
I've been a monster,
Howling with rage,
I've been a fool,
Mind filled with lies, and
I've been a wet grey hole,
Filled to the brim with nothing.
And what hurts worse still,
I've seen you suffer the same.
And yet, sometimes I wonder,
If I would really be rid of it if I could
For despite the horrid thoughts it brings us
The searing pain that some days is our lives
You and I have tasted every wine,
And drank more deeply than anyone can claim.
We have seen the bottoms of the oceans
And we’ve breathed the thinnest mountain air
We have felt nearly all there is to feel
And you and I? We came back.
No matter how far we sink or how high we soar
You and I will always come back
As long as we hold on to each other.
So we have a choice to make
As these waves of madness throw us where they will
We can scream with terror as we thrash in the tides
Or we can scream with laughter as we take the ride of our lives
But it’s easier to laugh with a friend
So will you take my hand?
