Making It Out Alive

from by David Thompson



I'm guilty
Just a tired soul
Warring with its vessel
Were flawless
You brought the air to life
I'm gasping for it now

Unless I can escape from
This land and find a new one
A home where I can meet you
Keep you safe from harm
In my arms

Have wandered
Passing colors by
To find the light I'd promised
They're watching
But they don't care
They don't know what they're after

Am I any better
To find the right protector
Before they overwhelm me
Drag me with my heart
To the dark


It was one
Waking up
Comb your hair
Fill your cup
Now you're worn
In a jar
Find your place
Working hard

And nostalgia will just eventually let you fall
It gets colder when you have no sanity left at all
And you're wondering if you can make it out alive
When the tyrants are now attacking from all sides

Hello there! I'm David and I write music. I'm currently in a new band called Something Dear and we'll hopefully be doing some really cool things very soon.

Over the last three years I have been held hostage by my first solo album project. The good news is that I'm really finished with it this time*, and I'll be working hard on new things from here on.

Take care!
