One Place

You don’t stay in one place/ You threaten and discourage
Between obedience and faith lies a great chasm of courage
That you won’t jump/ you won’t swim
But you don’t think twice about throwing others in

You don’t stay in one place no matter how hard you try

The expression on your face/ Cold and sober as a weapon
And behind your eyes you race with addictions and confessions.
Call it guilt/ Call it shame
Meanwhile tying others to your chain…

Oh come to love/ come to laugh
Don’t you come here to relive the past-.
You don’t stay in one place.

Reflect upon the days and nights/ When you were young and things were clearer
You said you’d always understand but now the truth is getting nearer.
What you said young kid-
It’s the things I learned by doing what I did:

You don’t stay in one place, no matter how hard you try.
