The anticlimax that is life...

The glorious end

Rattled lungs gasp for breath,

Rattled lungs gasp for breath, persuading weary legs to go higher,

Rattled lungs gasp for breath, persuading weary legs to go higher, turning a blind eye to the stones and thorns,

Rattled lungs gasp for breath, persuading weary legs to go higher, turning a blind eye to the stones and thorns, paying no heed to the scorching sun.

thump

thump thump

thump thump thump

thump thump thump my heart bangs, anxious,

thump thump thump my heart bangs, anxious, the bald mountain head,

thump thump thump my heart bangs, anxious, the bald mountain head, slowly creeps into view.

Exhilarating hope so grand,

Exhilarating hope so grand, soothe the screaming muscles,

Exhilarating hope so grand, soothe the screaming muscles, that every step brings forward,

Exhilarating hope so grand, soothe the screaming muscles, that every step brings forward, that every blade of grass marks.

Scrapes and bruises gleam like a trophy,

Scrapes and bruises gleam like a trophy, A memento to take back home,

Scrapes and bruises gleam like a trophy, A memento to take back home, A companion to the tales of valour,

Scrapes and bruises gleam like a trophy, A memento to take back home, A companion to the tales of valour, Spun in blood sweat and tears

There it stands in all its glory,

There it stands in all its glory, the final destination stands so proud,

There it stands in all its glory, the final destination stands so proud, and I walk atop its heart,

There it stands in all its glory, the final destination stands so proud, and I walk atop its heart, taking in the first breath of victory.

I wait for happiness, for joy,

I wait for happiness, for joy, I wait for the loud screams I anticipated,

I wait for happiness, for joy, I wait for the loud screams I anticipated, I wait for my wounds

I wait for happiness, for joy, I wait for the loud screams I anticipated, I wait for my wounds to forget their pain amidst the success,

I wait for happiness, for joy, I wait for the loud screams I anticipated, I wait for my wounds to forget their pain amidst the success, I wait to feel something,

I wait for happiness, for joy, I wait for the loud screams I anticipated, I wait for my wounds to forget their pain amidst the success, I wait to feel something, anything.

I wait

I wait and wait

I wait and wait and wait,

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort,

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me,

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me, the sky as still as my mind, my body.

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me, the sky as still as my mind, my body. I wait for it.

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me, the sky as still as my mind, my body. I wait for it..

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me, the sky as still as my mind, my body. I wait for it...

I wait and wait and wait, I wait until I laugh at the futile effort, I feel blank as I stare ahead of me, the sky as still as my mind, my body. I wait for it... it never comes.
