More focus
More concentration
More exhaustion
More youth spent
More time gone
More ink blots
More blood stains
More laughter in your eyes

No breaking
No stopping
No turning and dreaming
Earth’s gone
And life’s gone
Just keep the pen moving
If you want to stay alive

Just cry
Just break
Just sob with the ink
Maybe they’ll hear it
Just don’t let them be hurt

It’s only begun
But the end can be tasted
Leaving a bitter tang
On the bright, safe beginning

And that’s why
I keep crying
When the truth is I’d smile
And that’s why
You’re still laughing
While they all press you down
