one drop in an ocean of pain

Hearts are worn in these dark ages
You're not alone in these stories' pages
The light has fallen amongst the living and the dying
And I'll try to hold it in, yeah, I'll try to hold it in

The world is on fire and it's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water, try to bring my share
I'll try to bring more, more than I can handle
Bring it to the table, bring what I am able

I watch the heavens but I find no calling
Something I can do to change what's coming
Stay close to me while the sky is falling
I don't wanna be left alone
Don't want to be alone

Hearts break, hearts mend, love still hurts
Visions clash, planes crash
Still there's talk of saving souls
Still the cold is closing in on us
Play on, play on...

We part the veil on our killer sun
Stray from the straight line on this shore to run
The more we take, the less we become
The fortune of one man means less for some

The world is on fire and it's more than I can handle
I'll tap into the water, try to bring my share
I'll try to bring more, more than I can handle
Bring it to the table
Bring what I am able

Nice to visit again Oliviah. Could I ask you a favor? Pllllease send up some of the Florida warmth. I can remember what it was like to live down there, and right now I am jealous.
