Amidst The Gray (Lansdowne)

It's 4am and I don't need any other reason Than the sight of my breath And the sound of my heart beating, Oh it's colder than they said it'd be today. But that's the weather for you and life's like that, Forecasting sunny skies and then taking it back, You know the world ain't black and white, But I can't live amidst the gray. So I'm off into the night, Trying to fight my way against this daylight, Cause I don't need permission From the sun to start my day. I've got no where else to go, But one thing I've got to know - Is there something that I'm missing, Something that I've lost amidst the gray. It seems that these dreams will only come to an end If I come to believe that I've got to defend This vision I've been living, And the life I want to lead. We've got this obsession with material things As if heaven is ours if we're buying our wings. But fall to your knees and show me What you've got's just what I need. So I'm off into the night, Trying to fight my way against this daylight, Cause I don't need permission From the sun to start my day. I've got no where else to go, But one thing I've got to know - Is there something that I'm missing, Something that I've lost amidst the gray. I want to be somebody better than I am, I want to see more than the edge of this town. I want to run like hell, I've got things to tell this world, So here I go and I'm not coming down. So maybe you're just fine Living on your knees, Or maybe you've been feeling The same as me. Cause I've got all these questions, But it's the answers I can't find. So I won't sit here waiting, Gonna leave it all behind. I want to be somebody better than I am, I want to see more than the edge of this town. I want to run like hell, I've got things to tell this world, So here I go and I'm not coming down
