lifeblood: songs: lyrics: locked up


i was locked up
for a long time
petty infractions
petty crimes
against my windfall
a sentence self imposed
i have done
and stolen my own time

but through that ceiling
there was a pinhole
a laser likeness
to the promise of release
it lit up your company
when you would visit me
and set my sights on brighter days
that came to be

so here's to trouble
and here's to mishap
here's to the kindness that we finally learn to show
and in the distance
the storm behind us
brush off the dirt
back on our feet
and on we go

we've got our story
in all its glory
days propped liked pop cans
in the line of fire
we saw the times tough
still hung our guns up
we shook it off
and rose above it that much higher

so here's to trouble
and here's to mishap
here's to the kindness that we finally learn to show
and in the distance
the storm behind us
brush off the dirt
back on our feet
and on we go

so here's to trouble
and here's to mishap
here's to the kindness that we finally learn to show
and in the distance
the storm behind us
brush off the dirt
back on our feet
and on we go
