Track Name: Oil Lamp Life
Living “oil lamp life” takes its toll
These bones, broken bones are life
But how easy night falls when you strike it with love
When you strike it with the strongest light

Take a look around
Look at all your tracks
Destination, come clean
Where do we go from this point?
I will not sweat it, I pray for this thing called faith

These lines on my brow show the fight
But this smile, this smile is fight
This full tank is ready and these eager eyes; steady
Make a man out of this frightful coward

Please do not boast because you don’t even know
What tomorrow will hold
you’re fighting to stay alive tonight
