A bridge that holds two sides is not forever
When you sleep a certain way it’s hard to change
Maybe stars and stripes should never be together
But patterns are so hard to re-arrange
My step-father bought her a car
But her needs are bigger than his are
This might be her one chance to be alive

I love to ride the subway and watch strangers
It’s like a motion picture but it’s real
This life of bugs and gunshots isn’t so bad after all
But I hope it’s not the only life I’ll know
My mother feels her whole life’s been a waste
My grandma’s gone to a higher place
And I wonder what it means to be alive

Some people claim they’d really like to hurt me
But still I’m gonna walk the streets alone
If people won’t talk to you anymore
Were they ever really your friends?
Sometimes it takes getting crazy
To see you need to change
So I leave them with their silly traps
And go out collecting dots on maps
I see now that they’ll never see
A casualty of who I used to be
Well I found a way I love to be alive
Long distance running…
